Real Assistants in an Online World

Continuing Education for Virtual Assistants and Virtual Professionals

Continuing education is important in any business. I’m always learning on my own via webinars, reading articles and books, hands-on learning of new programs, etc. But there’s something to be said for more formalized training sessions like conferences and courses. A few things I love about conferences:

  • Networking with peers & experts.
  • Learning about hot industry topics.
  • One price for tons of learning!
  • I get to pick and choose what I want to hear (especially when there are multiple sessions at once).
  • For virtual conferences, I get to listen to recordings later!

The IVAA Online Summit is one of my favorite (and one of the least expensive) Virtual Conferences to attend each year. Granted, I am a bit biased since I was one of those who helped get it started and off the ground! This is actually the first year I’ll be paying to attend (instead of being a volunteer, in charge, etc.) and I’m excited to experience it without fighting all the fires that come with running an event. :)
