Executive Admin Training Camp Resource Page

Final Week! The PowerPoint slides are below. I will post the PDF to dropbox and also will put the final version of action steps there. There are five of you who haven’t joined the Dropbox folder yet. I can email you copies at your request. 

We’re up to 12 members on LinkedIn. I plan to invite previous grads to join us to give us a bigger base to draw from to keep that going. If anyone has a better option, I’m open to it, and am also looking into how I might create a private group on this site. 

The login and call in info is the same as last week.

This link for the screenshare will become live at 12:50 ET. It will ask you to enter your name and click Join Meeting. It works best to wait to click “join” until the conference is live. http://screenshare.maestroconference.com/id=10775916&;;;password=df4d0846bdcc3680

If you can’t see my screen, first try pressing CTRL+F5 (PC) or Command+Shift+R (MAC) on your browser.

If that doesn’t work, you can follow the slides below. The main concern is that you get on the call, but the visuals are helpful and add another dimension.

Again  – there are a lot of slides. We won’t get through them all, so consider the last sections to be bonus material. Enjoy!

 

Week Three! The login and call in info is the same as last week.
