Wow, what a fantastic time we had! Great speakers, great presentations, new contacts, great company and congratulations to our two award winners – Kylie Short from Australia and Tawnya Sutherland from Canada. Both very deserving candidates.
I was honoured and pleased to have one of my own clients, Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), Paddy Spruce who is a member of the National Speakers Association of Australia. I’ve known Paddy for many years and he arrived at my home at 7am to be ready to go on the air just after 7.15 as keynote speaker for the International Virtual Assistants Day Awards ceremony. Like a true professional, he came prepared and kept the audience interested and entertained with his thoughts and observations of life.
The Steering Committee are to be congratulated for all the behind the scenes work they’ve done over several months to pull off yet another great event and I can see a bright future for more events over the years. Well done everyone!
