I can’t quite believe I am writing about our 5th conference! I have to pinch myself sometimes that we have come this far because when I started the blog back in 2011, I didn’t think eight years later I’d be welcoming over 125 Assistants in London and over 300 online to the Future Assistant Conference. But, that is precisely what I did last week, and I couldn’t have been happier! So what can I tell you guys about the Future Assistant Conference 2019: What went down? Here are just some of the highlights…
We try to make things a little different
We had just over 125 Assistants join us at the RichMix Cinema in Shoreditch, and we also had 300 attendees from all over the world watching online. It was brilliant holding the event in such a relaxed environment. Everyone came dressed comfortably, ready to make friends and share experiences and as we started the conference, everyone was chatting happily with each other.
Everyone had their trusty floppy disk badge and this year we introduced the Practically Perfect PA Book Club, with all of the attendees receiving a free copy of a much loved personal development book.
We had a whole range of AMAZING speakers
We had a load of brilliant speakers who covered topics ranging from unleashing your inner leader to improving your G Suite skills. We had panel sessions from some truly inspiration Assistants, and we included some pretty intense subjects that affect so many of us in our roles.
Our attendees laughed, jumped up and down and got to know each other very well!
We did everything we could to make sure that everyone who came along to the Future Assistant had a good time, learnt a lot and got to know each other. Which they did, if the sound of laughter during the networking drinks was anything to go by!
#FAconf2019 hashtag connected everyone online
We had so many excellent social media messages from the attendees during the two days, so thank you to everyone who posted on Twitter and Instagram!
