I am delighted to announce that I have been invited by Eth Lloyd to take over as interim Chair of the World Administrators Summit when she steps down in September 2020.
The Interim Chairman role has been approved by the Advisory Council and is to be endorsed by Delegate vote at the 11th WA-Summit. I am already working closely with the Task Force and Eth Lloyd, the current Chairman of the Advisory Council. The WA Summit was planned to be held in September in Wellington, New Zealand, but due to the Corona virus, it was decided to postpone it until 2021. However, the Advisory Council is hoping to hold online meetings, so that the Business sessions of the Summit can be conducted as planned.

I teamed up with Campbell Knowledge to facilitate their two-day training course Executive Secretary Update in Oman and Kuwait in 2019.
I was invited to be one of the speakers at Executive Secretary Live on 28-29 March, 2019 in London. Live is the world’s leading international event for senior and aspiring Administrative Professionals and Executive Assistants and I was so proud to be amongst such a great line up of inspiring role models.
I was thrilled to have been invited by Chair Eth Lloyd to be one of the Facilitators at the 2018 World Administrators’ Summit in Frankfurt on 24th and 25th October.
The Word Administrators Summit (WASummit) 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 WASummit 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.
With fellow facilitators Lucy Brazier and Karen Nanninga, 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 Summit in 2020.
