Times have changed. With new technology and a faster-paced work environment than ever, administrative professionals have had to adapt – quickly and constantly.

The May 22 event at the Okemos Conference Center features two well-known keynote speakers. Bernadette Johnson, leadership consultant and author, and Mark S. McDaniel, president and CEO of Cinnaire, will inspire summit attendees to own their successand accept challenges and build bridges together.

“The 2019 Administrative Professionals Leadership Summit is designed to help attendees become the very best at what they do and to achieve their personal and professional goals,” Parsons said. “They will walk away with a greater sense of purpose and gain some fantastic insights, resources and tools to help make their job a little easier. This is truly an investment in their professional career, helping them to acknowledge their value and the important role they play in their organization.”
