28-29 August 2012, Wellington
I was delighted to be awarded the title ‘Virtual Assistant of the Year 2012’ while attending the inaugural New Zealand Virtual Assistant Conference in Wellington this week which gave the Virtual Assistant community of New Zealand a chance to connect in person and plan a direction for this young but very exciting and forward thinking industry.
Keynote speakers Justin Flitter and Hannah Samuel imparted much of their knowledge regarding social media and reputation branding. They were joined by a number of others representing fields that compliment the industry and the conference was sponsored by Xero, Private Box and BeMyVA.
I found the discussions and speakers inspirational and a certain buzz was felt in the room. Plans are in place to promote and further establish the industry and even a name change is on the cards, so watch this space.
Thank you to Debra Clark and her committee for all of the organising and a special thank you to Larissa Paris of Xero and John Palmer of BeMyVA for being judges and awarding me this special title.
