a live, two-hour satellite event designed specifically
for administrative professionals at Penn. The live satellite
broadcast will be held Wednesday, April 23 from

the "ultimate expectation" at every workplace,

for it. Other presenters will be on hand to talk about
the state of the administrative professional field, and
to help you learn how to partner with your boss and influence
others even without formal authority.

administrative professionals. The cost for the program
is $15, which includes lunch. A copy of Bob Nelson's book, Please
Don't Just Do What I Tell You, Do What Needs to Be Done will
be raffled at the end of the program.
