Things have been quiet on my blog as I just completed what could be the busiest work week of my life. I took a 2 day course on Excellence in Presenting to improve my public speaking. (More on this later as I managed to weave in my sewing!) I am taking Spanish twice a week over the lunch hour. And my team hiked into a wetlands and helped to remove invasive plants.
This was one of our team building events for the year. We like at least one to be a community improvement event. These plants are NOT native to this area. The birds eat the berries but they don’t contain enough fat so the poor migrating birds don’t have enough energy to make it where they are going. Isn’t that terrible?
This was serious plant removal. Spades, loppers and brute force. The goal was to get the whole root ball out. Did I mention it was raining?
As an admin, almost any event that I attend, I’ve planned and ordered the catering. So, as I’m in my public speaking course I’m ordering and receiving the catering and cleaning up after. For the community event I’m picking up snacks and G2 at Costco the night before and feeding everybody. Not complaining. Just saying, thank your admin, receptionist, office manager. Who ever makes the world go around in your workplace.
Me Made May ends today. Wrap-up post on Monday! I do have some lessons learned. Also, I have to share my experience from the course I took. I got to share my sewing! Stay tuned!
Do you have a stellar admin? Receptionist? Do you think folks are aware of all they do?
