Advance Secretarial Institute of Nigeria in Association with Newways Consulting present 8th Annual Admin Officers and Secretaries Conference

 

Conference Objective

Administrative professionals are highly valued for their ability to wear many hats, cope with high-level responsibilities, and work with both speed and accuracy.  Organising all the pieces and parts of your professional life – from work spaces to meetings to travel plans, as well as keeping executives organized, takes a huge range of skills and attributes. The new COVID-19 world environment also creates its own unique challenges affecting almost all the responsibilities of the professional administrator. 

This interactive training tackles both the practical know-how you need to give you an edge in a busy multi-faceted role, as well as the mind-set, confidence and calmness to manage yourself, your work and your working relationships no matter what the challenges.

Training will feature:

  • Managing your time more effectively for increased productivity
  • Understanding the secrets and pitfalls of effective communication
  • Learning how to work in a virtual, post-covid work environment. 
  • Managing your emotions, stress and motivation levels
  • Essential skills for organizing any project, meeting or event

 

By the end of this Conference participants will be able to:

  • Work smarter and leverage their time to get things done quicker
  • Set and achieve short and long term goals
  • Communicate confidently and clearly at all levels
  • Present themselves professionally in online and real life meetings and presentations
  • Organise themselves, their office and their executives more effectively
