Training Day 2014
It is with great pleasure that I invite you to attend the 2014 EUMA Training Day. The topic of this year is Effective Presentation Skills.
In this training you will receive the tools and techniques to set up an inspiring powerpoint presentation and to present this in a professional way. This training will cover the hard skills (how to make interesting slides) and the soft skills (how to present them in an impressive way). Effective presentations are important in business, whether you are a management assistant or a manager. But you need to develop the confidence and capability to give good presentations and to stand up in front of an audience.
Everyone can put text and pictures in slides, but to make the message clear you need this EUMA Training!
Is it possible to make dull material engaging by great powerpoint presentations? Yes, it is. Come to the next EUMA Training Day in Cologne!
Kindly note that the registration deadline is 28th February 2014.
I would be grateful if you pass the word around to your friends and colleagues who may like to participate since non-members are welcome to register too – and perhaps become a member afterwards.
Looking forward to seeing you at our 2014 EUMA Training Day in Cologne.

International Year of the Secretary and Assistant - IYOTSA 2014
In 2014 we celebrate the International Year of the Secretary and Assistant - and EUMA celebrates our 40 year anniversary. This is a golden opportunity to put both our profession and EUMA in the spotlight all over Europe.
EUMA will be supporting the IYOTSA 2014 initiative in several ways during the coming year. The aims of IYOTSA 2014 correspond very much with some of the aims of EUMA – we also want to focus on the diverse role of the Management Assistant, to showcase that we are indeed a very important part of all of our companies, we co-operate with the managements, we manage with and for the managements of our companies.
The IYOTSA 2014 logo will appear on our homepage throughout the year with a link to the IYOTSA 2014 homepage where all sorts of interesting events – like EUMA’s coming Training Day and Conference - and happenings will be described, so that all interested parties can see them and sign up. The EUMA logo will be on the IYOTSA 2014 homepage under ”the supporting associations”.
Our own European Co-Operator Lucy Brazier and her Executive Secretary Magazine sponsor IYOTSA 2014 - they will be funding and handling the homepage for the whole year. As of January 2014 the IYTOSA homepage will be up and running: www.iyotsa.com
