“This programme is designed for administrative professionals to improve their ability, to tap their talents and passion, and improve their ability to build better relationships,” said Camille Crichton, Managing Director of Professional Secretarial & Consultancy Services Inc. Crichton said the event will provide employers with an opportunity to show their appreciation to their administrative staff by having lunch with them.

The programme will take the form of a luncheon followed by a live interactive Video conference sponsored by Cable & Wireless with keynote speaker Stephen Covey, author of “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” and “The 8th Habit”. In 1996 Stephen R.Covey was recognized as one of Time magazine’s 25 most influential Americans and one of Sales and Marketing Management’s top 25 power brokers.

Other presenters are The International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) President Kay Enlow and Author of “Nuts! Southwest Airlines Crazy Recipe for Business” Jackie Freiberg.
