How to Celebrate Administrative Professionals Day

So, what is an “administrative professional” anyway? WE think it’s the person our clients contact us about (sometimes in a panic). They rely on us to find them the person who is the “glue” that holds everything together—from personal appointments and commitments to making sure every call is answered with professionalism and warmth. Often, these are the people who wrangle the thoughts of those visionary leaders into a cohesive, digestible presentation with the style of a “creative” and the accuracy of an analyst.
