2015 Admin Awards
I haven’t had a chance to blog in a while, but last week I was invited to an event that was so cool and special that I just had to share. I was lucky enough to be invited to the 2015 Admin Awards by my friend Catherine Cuellar, who is with Entrepreneurs for North Texas. If you haven’t heard of the admin awards you aren’t alone. I have to admit I hadn’t heard of it until I got the invite.
This was really a wonderful event where companies get to show love and appreciation for their admins. If you think about it admins probably run your office. They are the gatekeepers, the schedule managers, and the individuals, who make our companies run smoothly, but they rarely get any credit for the multi-task masters they are.
Complete with a make-up/ touch-up bar sponsored by Instyle Magazine, a slew of incredible door prizes (for admins only of course), and a great all around high positive energy vibe its not hard to see why there are literally hundreds of smiling happy faces attending. If you don’t know about the admin awards you do now, so there is no excuse for not going next year. Is there a deserving admin at your company? Think about nominating them for next year.
I had a great time. With big wigs from AT&T, Children’s hospital, etc. you never know, who you will run into. In fact, I had the pleasure of chatting with Colleen Barrett (President Emerita and Corporate Secretary of Southwest Airlines), while waiting for my ride after the event. How cool is that?
