  • Office Systems & Procedures Workshop - Julie Perrine

    Are you feeling overwhelmed in your job? Could you benefit from reliable systems for time and workload management? Do you lack documented procedures of daily tasks for easy reference and cross training?

    If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then join All Things Admin Founder (and procedures pro!) Julie Perrine for this masterclass on office systems and procedures!

    Effective systems and procedures are an admin’s ultimate power tools. They allow you to do more with less, and work smarter, not harder. They’re also the key to streamlining workflow and improving office operations, keeping the office running smoothly, and building credibility, trust, and confidence in those you support.

    Systems and procedures are applicable and useful to many areas of your admin career and beyond, including:

    · Meeting and event planning
    · Scheduling
    · Project management
    · Filing
    · Travel planning
    · Strategic career planning
    · Health and wellness
    · Self-care

    This master class will teach you how to create and utilize systems and procedures that work in all of these areas! Some session highlights include:

    The difference between procedures and systems, and why both are necessary.

    · Identifying where you need systems and procedures.
    · Creating effective systems and procedures to streamline your work.
    · Implementing and troubleshooting your systems and procedures.
    · The keys to making systems and procedures work for you.

    Five core systems your office needs to be efficient.
    Five simple steps to get you started on creating your procedures.
    The appropriate items to include in a procedures binder.
    How to fast track your procedures with a few key templates.

    And much more!

    You’ll also get an inside look at some of the exact systems and procedures Julie and the All Things Admin team use to stay organized and productive!

    With effective systems and procedures in place, you can navigate unexpected changes and absences, find support and resources quicker, keep yourself and those you support organized, and bring calm to the chaos that surrounds you. Join Julie for this master class to learn how to do all of the above and optimize your effectiveness at work and beyond!

    Your brand is what customers believe and invest in, it is a symbol of what you are and what you stand for, and it encourages confidence. With this session Anel will help you to define your personal brand and provide tips and guidance in order to market and apply your brand correctly.

    Laura Schwartz, the White House Director of Events for the Clinton Administration, created and executed more than 1,000 White House events including State arrival ceremonies and dinners, America’s Millennium Celebration, NATO’s 50th Anniversary, the Concert of the Century and many others. While producing the President’s events on the world stage, Laura demonstrated the Presidency’s ability to inspire a nation and the world through powerful events. She arrived at the White House at just 19 years old with no political connections and volunteered answering phones in the press office. Proving her value immediately Laura climbed her way up the ranks as a Staff Assistant, the Midwest Press Secretary, the Director of Television and ultimately the White House Director of Events. Following the Administration, Laura traveled the world with Former President Clinton for his Foundation and Global Initiative.

    In her first book, Eat, Drink & Succeed! Climb Your Way to the Top Using the Networking Power of Social Events, Laura shares the secrets to building powerful, effective partnerships in our companies, communities and beyond, adding color with personal anecdotes from her life and White House years. As a professional speaker she takes those same details to stages, boardrooms, classrooms and ballrooms around the world in her acclaimed speaking series to empower, motivate and inspire each audience to Eat, Drink & Succeed!

    Laura appears regularly as an international television commentator speaking about leadership, networking, domestic and foreign affairs, pop culture and special events. She covered the 2008 presidential campaign for the CBS Early Show, was the on-air political contributor for Fox News Channel from 2004 to 2007, and was the special correspondent to Larry King Live and CNN for the 2008 presidential primaries. Laura appears on the BBC World News, BBC Wales and has also appeared on Sir David Frost’s Frost Over the World. Laura’s non-partisan commentary is well respected both domestically and internationally.

    Laura is a well-known mistress of ceremonies for multi-day conferences and events including charity galas, sporting events, panel discussions and fashion shows. Whether addressing an intimate gathering of 30 or an audience of 30,000, Laura captivates audiences with her positive energy, expertise and enthusiasm. Laura is the annual emcee for several prominent charitable events and organizations, including the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk in Chicago’s Grant Park, the YWCA annual Leader Luncheon, which honors women and mentors for outstanding achievement in their chosen career fields.

    Laura has been named one of the Best Keynote Speakers by Meetings and Conventions Magazine and is a member of the National Speakers Association serving on the boards of the American Heart Association, the Clean the World Foundation, Common Threads and Event Solutions Magazine. She was named one of the “100 Most Influential Women in Chicago” by Today’s Chicago Woman Magazine and named one of Chicago’s “Most Bold and Beautiful” by Chicago Magazine. In 2009, the prestigious Oxford Union in England invited Laura to speak on the Foreign Policy Legacy of the United States and the role of Women in the World.

    Laura is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, where she founded White House Strategies in 2001. As Laura’s career transformed into predominantly live appearances – from keynotes and panel discussions to television and book signings – Laura Schwartz Live was established, a brand that truly reflects her core services.

    Laura travels extensively both domestically and internationally to work with Fortune’s Top 50 and 500 companies, independent businesses, industry associations, universities and nonprofit organizations, motivating people from all over the world to EAT, DRINK & SUCCEED!

Here are just a few comments from previous events:

"What can I say? Top speakers, top organization, top team :-)"

"On the first day of Executive Secretary LIVE, I learnt more from my peers and the fantastic line-up of subject matter experts who were presenting than I had from several courses over the previous three years.

Executive Secretary LIVE opened the door for me to be able to provide that real Executive Assistance support relationship that we are all looking for with our Executives as I learnt how to manage projects, think strategically, write reports on my Executive’s behalf, represent them at high-level meetings etc. when they were unavailable and truly be that right hand, go-to person.

If there is only one conference you are able to attend, make it this one. You will go away with a plethora of skills and tips from those who you’ve networked with which you can implement immediately and make dramatic changes to how you work and support your Executives.

"Absolutely the best value for money PA event there is."

"I have never felt more motivated about my role. I am now proud to be an EA and will give the best I can to do an amazing job."
