Hawaii.. you can have meetings and have great offsite events.
2  General Discussion / Admins 4 Admins / Power Point Presentations on: October 19, 2015, 03:32:52 am
I have been doing Powerpoint presentations for years.  I feel burnt out on my creativeness.  So, I ask..  In your opinion, what makes a really cool presentation?   (Other than content, content is king, but I am not in charge of that.. I create with what I get)..

Background?  Transitions?  Multimedia embedded?   

What about new software such as Prezi?

All the time.  Sometimes it is just to get off site awsy from the norm, others are .. actual off-site in locations that require nite stays.

How do people find time to interview when your time is micro managed?  I but can't find time to interview.  I have had to pass on two that I managed to schedule at lunch people I had to run errands.  I feel in a no win situation!
7  General Discussion / Sound Off! / Re: Training on: July 17, 2015, 04:26:15 am
In my company, budgets have hit hard.  Training has been suspended, no one goes to seminars (unless you are high levels).  Sad.
8  General Discussion / Cafe Admin / Go Figure Photo Copying Checks on: July 07, 2015, 04:17:12 am
Our bookkeeper was out today and I had to photocopy the incoming checks, towards the end of the stack the photo copier kept giving me black pages.  I called our copier repair and the guy on the phone asked if I was photo copying checks.  I said yes and he said there was something in the check that makes it go black.  It is a protection so people don't duplicate checks.   I soooo didn't believe him but tried to copy something else and it worked again.  I feel naive!   Go figure!  Just had to share my duh moment!

If you have different departments you can have someone present what their department does.  Besides that, leadership, organization, productivity..

I like Claudiamag's answer!  I can but wont complain about compensation, but besides that the job fits my personality and I enjoy it!
12  General Discussion / Admins 4 Admins / Re: Does your job have any perks on: June 24, 2015, 05:37:22 am
My boss really does give me perks.  We have 401k, company team building events where we win prizes, the CEO hands out personal perks that he has come across at times.  I wish we had some of the bonues others have listed, but... what can I say, we are ok.
13  General Discussion / Admins 4 Admins / MIA - work and injuries on: June 24, 2015, 05:35:22 am
I have been missing in action for a bit!  I hurt my neck and have to work through the pain!  It is a long term injury, well a couple weeks it should be better.  Of course my boss expects my outcome and quality of work to be up to par, but it is so hard!  (there will have to be a blog entry about this once done and feeling better)

Anyone have to work through pain where your company is as compassionate .. as they should be.  I don't have any complaints, I could take a day off (and will) here and there. 
14  General Discussion / Sound Off! / Re: Ergonomic Challenge on: May 12, 2015, 04:31:27 am
I do not keep my mouse in a good spot.  It slowly moves way to my right.  I really should put it where it needs to be more often. 

At home (like right now) I am TOTALLY bad, my feet don't touch the ground, I could use a better chair, the keyboard can be adjusted to a better height.  Here my mouse is fine, and my monitor is in a good spot.   I tend to sit cross legged like a yoga style because my feet don't touch (desk is too high).
15  General Discussion / Sound Off! / Re: Administrative Professionals are in your company on: March 17, 2015, 06:58:47 am
I have been in companies with 100's (national Bank) to large, but not huge companies with .. my guess 80?  Right now, we have five, and the internet (and DeskDemon) are my support group. (I have one of the 4 other assistants, I conspire with!)
