I've had a Blast

27th Jun 11
My time as President of AAPO is coming to an end and I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the confidence you've shown in me over the 2 years I've been in the job. It has been tremendously rewarding personally and professionally. I have really enjoyed working with a dedicated team of fellow members and watching AAPO grow and develop. I cannot say it enough. Thank you!...

The 2011 President's Award goes to...

The 2011 President's Award was presented at the Gala Dinner during the 2011 AAPO Conference in Christchurch on February 9. It was a great pleasure to be able to present the award in front of industry peers, and to have the awardee acknowledged publicly.

And the Award goes to..... drumroll.....

As President of AAPO, nothing gives me more pleasure than to present this award to someone who has distinguished themselves as a leader and a toiler for our industry. Simultaneously, nothing gives me more angst than deciding who will be the next recipient. AAPO is blessed with strong candidates, people who give selflessly, think strategically and work tirelessly. Previous recipients Wendy Hanes and Wendy Davie are a testament to this....

Big Moves Afoot

For decluttering tips, don't take your advice from the Australian Labor Party. Much better to consult a Professional Organiser. In the meantime, it's election time for the Australasian Association of Professional Organisers. Members should seriously consider making a contribution to their industry association. Now's the time to get those nominations in quick.

What happened in Columbus?

You know the saying, what happens at conference, stays at conference? Well, not in this case. I can tell you I had a fabulous time, came home utterly exhausted from all the networking, learning, sharing. Remember I told you the conference theme was Innovate, Connect, Inspire? Keep that in mind as you read this update on the NAPO conference in Columbus, Ohio. (And yes, it was noted that OHIO stands...

Back from NAPO with lots to share

The first session of the NAPO 2010 Conference in Columbus, Ohio, was the Ask an Organizer panel. The first question asked of that panel was, “What one question do you always ask of a client at the first needs assessment meeting?” The first answer given was, “Are you ready to get organised?” Great question, and a very apt one to start a jam-packed program aimed at beginners and more experienced...
