Admin Pro Forum Course Materials

Read this only if you’re overdue for a raise,
a promotion, or a new job.

Dear Administrative Professional,

You’re making enough money, but who wouldn’t like more?

You like your job, but you’ve been doing the same thing a while now.

You and Michelle were hired the same week, but now Michelle is moving on. Next month she starts with your company’s main competitor – as personal assistant to the top boss.

Nothing’s wrong. Not really. But yes, things could be better. If only you had a …

Success Kit-in-a-Box

Admin Pro ForumOK, not its real name. But that’s what the Admin Pro Forum Course Materials Binder actually is – a wealth of instructional materials with but one purpose: to jump-start your career.

It’s the course materials for Admin Pro Forum 2018, the No. 1 conference and learning session for administrative assistants everywhere.

And it’s a mouthful. That’s why I prefer to call it Success Kit-in-a-Box.

Handouts and PowerPoints. Worksheets and cheat-sheets. Scads of online instructional materials – handbooks, manuals, PDFs galore. A package worth … well, thousands of dollars.

Which is what you’d have spent if you’d attended the Admin Pro Forum 2018, where this binder was distributed to attendees.

You also would have had to spent days away from pressing work and family matters.

But with this binder and online materials, you get the best of the Forum – the distilled wisdom of the stars of your field – for just a fraction of the cost.

So forgive me if I keep referring to it as Success Kit-in-a-Box.

Getting the Details Right

Success Kit-in-a-Box addresses the big things – a higher salary, faster advancement, greater job satisfaction. But career success depends just as much on getting the little things right – the everyday keeping-things-straight details that make bosses value you and your work. Details like …

  • Mastering Microsoft Excel, with time-savers for every skill level.
  • The art and science of minute-taking: Tips from the pros.
  • 30 keyboard shortcuts in Windows and Microsoft Office.

Being Everything You Can Be

There’s more to career success than a sharp mind, though. You need emotional intelligence, too – the people skills that make you more effective with bosses and colleagues. Skills like …

  • Aligned assertive communications. It’s a set of brain-based exercises and approaches to help you manage – and master – conflict.
  • Handling the boss from Hell. Twenty-six fellow admins dish about nightmare office situations and how they handled them – successfully.
  • Giving fear the boot. Dana Theus of InPower Coaching is your guide to breaking old habits that can hold a woman back. These are much more than workplace tips, as you’ll discover in dealings with family and friends.

Is it Really ‘in a Box’?

Yes and no.

“Yes,” in the sense that it does arrive in a sturdy cardboard box via UPS – an inch-thick-plus three-ring binder, tab-divided into 17 headings. You’ll discover dozens of online forms, charts, tables and formulas. Adapt them to your office situation with merely a click or two.

And that’s not all. Far from it …

  • “The Art of Minute-Taking,” a 58-page guide, plus sample minutes, examples of agendas, and a list of helpful words and phrases
  • A 16-page manual detailing the admin’s ultimate power tools for efficiency and productivity
  • 50 Microsoft Office tips across the Microsoft Office suite – plus 11 pages of instruction specifically on Excel’s pivot tables, macros, advanced formatting techniques, and database management tricks
  • A 42-page packet on avoiding and preventing workplace bullying, with advice on being more confident, setting yourself up for a great performance review, and even spotting a problem boss during an interview
  • “The Office Organizer,” a 24-page booklet with practical advice on file organizing, clutter control, document management, record-retention guides, and how to organize office emails

Yes! I Want Success Kit-in-a-Box!
Now … Can I Afford It?

Can you afford cable service? Monthly heating/cooling bills? A few weeks of off-street parking? Success Kit-in-a-Box costs more or less the same as these routine expenses of daily living. But unlike, say, cable TV, Success Kit-in-a-Box pays dividends … forever.

Your price: Only $299.

That’s considerably less than the registration fee for the Admin Pro Forum conference, and a lot less than going back for an MBA. But the career benefits? Comparable. Better, maybe.

This low $299 price is only available for a short time. It pays to ORDER NOW.

What Is Career Success Worth to You?

Many administrative assistants didn’t go looking for their job. It was more a matter of the job finding them – a promotion from receptionist, say, or a temp job turning into 40 hours a week. People who come up through the ranks – people like you, perhaps – may have missed out on important career training along the way.

But now it’s catch-up time. Order your Success Kit-in-a-Box today … and watch your career take off tomorrow.

Sincerely,

Pat DiDomenico
