The World Class Administrative Professional Course
A Truly Unique Program
For any advanced learning experience to be effective, it must provide a blended mix of quality content, materials, and group interaction as well as enough unencumbered time to allow participants to reflect and introspect. This course is crafted to do just that. The World-Class Administrative Professionals APC Certification Course is a three-day program designed to advance the participant’s competency in the six vital areas of concentration outlined in this brochure.
P.A. Douglas is well suited to present this course. For over forty-ﬁve years, we have set the gold standard for excellence in AA and EA training. No other seminar or event provides the comprehensive high-quality advanced program that the World-Class Administrative Professionals APC Certification Course does. You will return to your job energized, motivated, refreshed and renewed, armed with a greater ability to face the ever-changing demands of your profession.
The World-Class Administrative Professionals Course is our most senior program. This highly-targeted course will afford you the opportunity to set realistic expectations, better partner with your boss, influence and motivate other team members and develop your emotional intelligence, communication and decision-making skills.
Management increasingly relies on you to organize the office, solve problems and project an appropriate professional image. At this advanced course, you will expand your emotional intelligence and learn how to communicate directly, but with greater discretion and diplomacy.
You will develop winning strategies for dealing with different and sometimes difficult people. You will significantly enhance your ability to exert influence and plan and organize projects successfully. Most importantly, you will develop the essential skills and best practices of a world-class administrative professional - developing a stronger professional reputation and greater visibility, increasing your value to your organization and enriching your life. The residential nature of this seminar provides many opportunities to engage in valuable interchange informally and affords the participant a unique opportunity to consider the focal topics in much greater depth than is possible at a one or two-day "hometown" seminar.
And Seattle is a perfect venue...
There is so much to see and do in the Emerald City
Get acquainted with Seattle's historic waterfront from the water side of the wharf on the Elliott Bay cruise from Seattle Harbor. This cruise follows the shoreline and provides up-close views of area attractions. There are plenty of interesting features around the bay: Alki Beach, the Space Needle, the Great Wheel, the Seattle Aquarium and the Museum of Pop Culture.(Previously known as Paul Alan's Experience Music Project). Stroll through world-famous Pikes Market. The Westin is also in the center of Seattle's shopping and restaurant district. Seattle is about culture, besides the show-stopping Chihuly Garden and Glass Seattle boasts 200 art galleries and five museums, One being the 'Museum of Flight' where you can explore over 160 air and spacecraft including, Air Force One, the Concorde and a a Space Shuttle. Go underground and explore the
subterranean pathways that were built more than 120 years ago, learn why these spaces were built, and how they have been used (and misused) over the years.
Seattle has the best seafood. Salmon, oysters, tuna – if you name it, it’s better in Seattle. And that includes chowder (step aside, New England). And coffee, coffee, coffee: Although Seattle is famously home to Starbucks and other well-known brands, the big chains make way for a smaller coffee culture to exist. On nearly every street there are neighborhood coffee shops to visit, all with that Seattle vibe.
Last but not least, there are tremendous views of the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Puget Sound surrounded by majestic Olympic Mountains lie to the west, solitary Mount Rainier to the southeast, and the inviting Cascade Range to the east
Seattle is a fantastic venue for the World-Class Administrative Professional Course and the Seattle Westin is in the heart of it all.
