On behalf of the European Committee
The celebration of EUMA 40th anniversary in Paris on October 31 was great and the party was on! We have a great spirit in our network and we become more and more international. This time we had individual members from United Arab Emirates, South Africa, Turkey and US among 300 participants!
The Conference with the theme “E-factor – maximasing your potential to reach Excellence” had three great main speakers:
Susie Barron-Stubley encourages us to take place and be visible in our profession.
Sue France walked us through how to get the most out of our brain.
Bonnie Low-Kramer highlighted the importance to have a mentor for your career development.
Our moderator Christophe Chouleur made an excellent work to get us through the day and to follow the red thread.
During the conference the winner of the Excellence Award 2014 was announced and it went to Ms. Andrea Macarie, she works for Telefonica R&D in Barcelona as Sr Executive Assistant.
The two runners-up was Mr. Gadiel G. Gabriel from the company OMIS Contracting in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and Mrs. Rita Kotsapa, Secretary at Business Professional Women Association Cyprus.
The Excellence Award is one way to make the profession visible and to get inspired of colleagues. Congratulation Andrea, Gadiel and Rita!
Finally a big thank you to the EUMA France team for an excellent arrangement!
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.
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. Here you can read more about IYOTSA http://www.executivesecretary.com/Article/?Article=485
