Thank you, dear readers, for your patience while I took time away from my website for the last half year – and for the thoughtful notes I’ve received from people all around this planet of ours. Your kindness has touched me deeply. I needed the time, as it’s our deeply loved and cherished son I referenced in my last article.
As promised, I’ve been back and presenting – practically non-stop – at conferences and via webinars for corporations and professional association clients since early September. It’s lovely to be back with you.
On the heels of two conferences last week, one in the US and another in Canada, I’m particularly excited about this week’s travels. I’ll be departing Vancouver for Sydney, Australia and then Auckland, New Zealand. This will be my first time in either country, and I can’t wait!
I look forward to working with a great group of assistants and speakers at Lucy Brazier’s Executive Support LIVE conference, and to spending even more time with some of the conference participants at this year’s Australian Assembly of Administrators 2023 awards ceremony! Thank you for that invitation.
Positively Future Ready: Anticipating and Adapting to Change is the theme of my two-hour LIVE conference presentation, and I’ll be expanding on resilience and something I call informed optimism.
This year began with me travelling to South Africa for the first time, and repeat trips to Europe, to do what I love. After Australia, and a bit of leisure time in New Zealand with my best friend from our school days, I’ll head home for family time before embarking on a couple of additional 2023 road trips. After speaking at a late November conference for Canadian executives, I look forward to seeing UK and European friends and clients, as I’ll be presenting from London and then in Europe before tucking away my passport for a couple of months.
I look forward to seeing many of you at upcoming events or through webinars, and appreciate you having continued to turn to my website – as thousands of you have for over a decade now – while I stepped away a while in honour of our son. I’m also grateful to event organisers who’ve waited for my return. I’m back, and I thank all of you for your support.
