Red Deer College 8th Annual Office Admin Conference

What a great Friday I had! Was invited to Red Deer College to do a keynote for a student organized Office Admin conference. What a great group of women...and what a great job they did too!

This is a class project for the 2nd year students and in my opinion, they passed with flying colors.

From a speaker's perspective they made me feel right at home and were very responsive as I shared some ideas during the 100 mins or so on stage.

I was able to encourage them to take risks and to sail out of the protection of their 'safe habor' as they finish their program and tackle building their new careers.

I shared the story of my Hawaii to Kobe, Japan story with the typhoon encounter as the background for my remarks.

The nice thing about this event was being able to actually stay around and talk with some of the audience members instead of having to rush off to another plane or drive to the next engagement. This was a luxury I do not enjoy too often and it was fun. Nice to hear the remarks and answer questions in person.

To the organizing class of Red Deer College's Office Admin thanks for a wonderful day....YOU DID GREAT!
