At least, that’s how it appeared to Kathie and the VA team that came along to support her over the two days. Our thanks to Monika Newman, Heidi Fowler, Gai Hook and Rachel McMahon, for making yourselves available during those two days so that Kathie wasn’t on the stall alone. Special thanks for Monika who was there for the full two days and who also videoed Kathie’s presentations on the Thursday morning. Thank you, also, to BeMyVA.com who sponsored the breakfast/morning tea provided for the first presentation. BeMyVA.com has just come on board to sponsor our 2014 Australian VA Conference and we’re delighted to have them involved again!
While at the OfficeShow, Kathie and the rest of the team made sure they caught up with the other stand holders and found a number who may become involved in AVAC 2014. And many of our visitors had heard of Virtual Assistants and wanted to know more… how to become one, how it works, that is how clients get the work to you, or what is a VA? Some made comments about being made redundant and perhaps this was what they needed in the new chapter in their life.
We also had a number of prizes being drawn for those who left their business cards in the bucket at our stand.
What were we giving away?
- 3 x 1 year memberships to AVAA
- 2 x 1 year webhosting with ACS WebServices
