6:30 - 8:00 PM Chapter Meeting: - Tools of the Trade - Hosted by Amanda Kovattana

 

Hosted by our one and only Amanda Kovattana, this is one of our most popular programs. This is your chance to share your favorite tool, technique or organizing tip. Always one of the most fun and most unpredictable programs for chapter participation. 

Not only is it a chance to share with your organizing colleagues, but it is a chance to break in your public speaking chops. Presentation is a skill we are required to use all the time in business whether it is giving our elevator speech at a networking event or persuading a client to adopt a time saving organizing skill. What better way to practice than with a most forgiving audience of supportive colleagues. 

Everyone has a different arsenal of tools and ways to use them — even something as mundane as a manilla folder. We don’t often have a chance to do this in-person program now so don’t miss out. Come and share with us.
