The Word Administrators Summit (WA-Summit) is a global meeting of administrative and office professionals and their associations, committed to its purpose of guiding, influencing and positively developing the profession. The WA-Summit has convened nine times since 1992. It provides the international platform for peer-to-peer discussion regarding relevant topics that potentially impact those working in the administrative profession.

I was invited, along with Lucy Brazier and Karen Nanninga to be a facilitator at the 2018 WA-Summit in Frankfurt. We led the discussions and Summit work groups on Workplace Harassment, The Identity and Image of our Profession, Consistent Job Descriptions and Digital Technology Advances. It was an inspiring, challenging and humbling experience.  The stories were many and varied and I was so impressed with the passion that the delegates have for our profession.  They speak out on challenging issues that are affecting Assistants in their country and came prepared to work hard, to actively participate and to contribute to the next steps leading up to the next WA-Summit
