Practically Perfect PA

When it comes to conferences, workshops, seminars and on-site training during working hours, however, how proactive are you? If you have never been provided with or funded for formal training in your current role or have never been given an opportunity to attend a conference, workshop or seminar, have you asked for it? That “back to school” feeling affects us all, even if we have left our school days far behind.

Simplifying Multiple Calendars

Simple Productivity Blog

These days, with interest groups, volunteer commitments, work seminars, sports practices, music lessons and everything else, one calendar is barely sufficient for one person!

8 Home Business Ideas that Provide Local Services

Tips From T. Marie

Whether it’s promotional, the recording of seminars or events or even just a behind the scenes video for social media, the need for good videographers is growing. When people think about home based businesses it’s often associated with providing services via computer or providing handmade or digital products via an eCommerce platform. But what if neither of those avenues are for you? Maybe you prefer getting out and about rather than being in the home office all day, every day.

Chances are, you realized that was as good as a storybook fantasy soon after you opened your doors. The truth of the matter is, there is a definite ebb and flow of small business ownership.

Most of these are not bad ideas ( though working through lunch can be counter-productive ). Here’s another idea. Why not use one lunch-break per week as a lunch-and-learn session?

Why personal development will make you miserable

7 Ways To Instantly Meet Like-Minded People

Dumb Little Man

Attend a related workshop/seminar. A workshop or seminar is essentially a gathering of like-minded individuals who wish to achieve a common objective. Finding people with the same interests isn’t always that easy. Finding people with the same goals and aspirations is even harder. Most of us feel that way. I do, sometimes.

Why Virtual Events Make A Lot Of Sense

Dumb Little Man

This means that all the huge events like continuing education seminars and conferences are going to be in trouble if they don’t adapt. Are virtual events the future of events? Much of our lives has moved online, and going to a big event just doesn’t seem appealing anymore. Work travel is always difficult and it’s becoming more difficult. Virtual conferences can be just as engaging, if not more engaging, than in-person conferences. So why isn’t everyone doing virtual conferences?
