Office Dynamics International Conference For Executive Assistants And Administrative Professionals
This annual conference is the premiere event for elite administrative assistants. Every year, an intimate group of top administrative professionals, along with notable experts and speakers in the administrative field, gather in Vegas to advance their careers and our entire industry.
It’s small. It’s authentic. It’s high impact. And yes, it’s in Las Vegas!
Today's administrative professionals bear little resemblance to those of a decade ago, or even a year. Our profession, and indeed the entire working world, is evolving at the speed of light. With each passing day, new technologies emerge, forcing us to adapt at a nearly inhuman pace. The workplace is more complex and dynamic than ever before. We're experiencing a brand new era of innovation, creativity, connectivity, and discovery.
As a result, the administrative profession itself is entering a crucial, pivotal moment. We can no longer look to the past as a roadmap for the future. In this uncharted territory, we must forge a new path. Assistants who remain stagnant in this accelerated environment will inevitably get left behind. Those who strive to merely "keep up" will struggle to ever get ahead.
The future belongs to a new kind of administrative professional...The Revolutionary Assistant.
We have an opportunity to shift from passive observer to active participant--to not only experience the dramatic shifts of the modern working world, but to initiate them. We have the power to take the lead and revolutionize our role, our organizations, and ourselves, from the inside out. In doing so, we become indispensable strategic assets now and in the future.
It's not enough to adapt to change; we must be the catalyst for it.
It's not enough to settle for business as usual; we must positively disrupt the status quo and introduce new ideas.
It's not enough to make slow incremental improvements; we must radically and rapidly advance over and over again.
To do this, we must be revolutionary in our attitudes and our actions, embracing a new perspective of what it is to be an administrative professional. It means building on what we already know and opening our eyes to a world of discovery.
The 2016 Office Dynamics Conference For Executive And Administrative Assistants is devoted to revolutionizing how you approach every facet of your life and career. It's about leveraging your mastery of the basics to propel yourself into this brand new frontier. You'll learn to embrace your professional power to not only understand and accept the massive forces of change that surround us, but to welcome and lead them as well.
