Wayne Ates is Featured Speaker at Upcoming OTC Administrative Professionals Appreciation Seminar

It’s like a breath of fresh air to hear a speaker nowadays who can have his say without being risqué.  You don’t have to worry about being embarrassed by offbeat and/or off-color humor.  Wayne Ates proves vividly that one can get people to laugh without being rude or crude.

Ates, a master storyteller and humorist, will be the keynote speaker at the Okefenokee Technical College Administrative Professionals Appreciation Seminar Wednesday, April 25, 2012. The event will be held on the OTC Waycross campus in the Miller Lecture Hall from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. Administrative professionals and employees in similar roles are invited to attend.

The cost is $50 for a full day of training, lots of fun and laughs, and a delicious lunch. Okefenokee Technical College partnered with area chambers of commerce for door prizes and event coordination.

Sessions include topics such as “Managing Your Day/Managing Your Life,” “Creating a Green Office,” “Calm and In Control,” and “Microsoft Office – Did You Know.”

Administrative Professionals Day will mark its 60th anniversary on April 25, 2012. Over those decades, the job of an administrative professional has changed dramatically thanks to new tools, techniques and seismic shifts in the economy and culture itself. But admins have remained the steady center of efficiency through it all, helping ensure that jobs get done right, on time, and under budget.

Today, there are more than 4.1 million secretaries and administrative assistants working in the United States, according to U.S. Department of Labor statistics, and 8.9 million people working in various administrative support roles. Administrative Professional Week is always the last full week in April. In 2012, Administrative Professionals Week is April 22-28, and Administrative Professionals Day is Wednesday, April 25.

Employers, please join OTC and area chambers in showing administrative professionals gratitude for their loyalty and hard work by registering them for the seminar. Call (912) 287-5854.

Admins, you’ll laugh…you’ll learn…but most of all, you’ll be uplifted!
