  • Hi William,
    Just wanted to say that yesterday’s event was amazing and I had a great time. So glad I was able to go. So being there motivated me to try and get my CAP. After looking in the program, I saw that the exams were from 19 Sept – 8 October. I will be traveling during those dates and won’t be back until the 13 October.
    Do you allow people different dates if they are traveling during the exam dates? I just wanted to see where I can start the process and get more information on it. I also wanted to know the cost of this as well. Is this info online?
    I look forward to hearing back from you.
    Many thanks,
    Marisa Pacheco

  • Hi William,
    What an amazing day yesterday!! I must say yesterday was definitely the best conference held so far!
    Chrissy was dynamic! Sumaya, Carolina & I actually attended her sessions at the Summit last year in Austin, Texas so I knew we were in for a treat!!
    Below are some feedback points I would like to share:
    • Amazing speaker! Could we maybe recruit Rhonda Scharf for next year another great IAAP speaker
    • Tea/coffee station desperately needed in the afternoon
    • Maybe do prize winner photos at the end and have a rep from each company remain at the front to avoid dragging out the day
    • Lunch was great!!
    • Loved the shake it & move it stretching exercise
    • This was the best one yet!
    Hats off to you and your team for all the hard work that goes into such an event. Job well done!! You need to be commended on an excellent job!!
    Best,
    Trina Todd, CAP, OM
    Executive Assistant
  • Good Day William,
    Firstly, I would like to commend you and your team on yesterday’s Administrative Professional’s Day.
    Following are my observations and suggestions for the 2020 Conference:
    • A welcome package on the tables for each of the attendees – a small gift bag from a local vendor – e.g. A.F. Smith, Complete Office, etc.
    • Raffles at the end of the day – ½ an hour before the close of the event. (This year there were too many raffles)
    • Power Brainstorming EA Panel Discussion should be more diversified – this year there were 3 EA’s from the International Business Sector, would like to see EA’s/ Admin Assistants from Government and Local businesses
    • CAP recognitions were too lengthy, should have only one segment devoted to the CAP/ OM and other certifications
    • Short sessions on new technology for Admins
    • A – C Suite Partnership that Works – CEO and Executive Assistant Introduction – *Please have every year with different people
    • Local motivational speakers and guests from the private local businesses to include; (i) Law offices; (ii) Shipping; (iii) Retail and (iv) Accounting
    I look forward to attending the next event and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
    Kind Regards,
    Aloma L. Musson
    Administration Manager
  • Good day William,

  • Good Morning,
    Thank you for a wonderful conference yesterday at Southampton Princess. I truly enjoyed myself and I feel very motivated to obtain my CAP certification. Can you please let me know what the cost of the exam/study group is? I am hoping to get approval to be 100% covered.
    I would also like to attend the CAP Study Group Information Session on May 2nd. Please let me know the location when it has been determined. Many thanks again.
    Regards,
    Jenn White | Executive Assistant

  • Hi William (and team)
    Congratulations on another successful APD conference. I enjoyed the whole day – the bar has been raised for next year.
    I mostly enjoyed the speaker Chrissy and Ms. Lilley – both were very engaging and presented well. My diamond from the day – there were so many, but this is the one that I remember – that I am a leader!
    Thanks again
    Eulene Jones, CAP Office Manager/Executive Assistant
  • Good day Mr. Spriggs:
    I attended the APD conference yesterday and it was an awesome experience. It opened my eyes to career planning for Executive Assistants, and the information shared sets one’s mind to start to plan their next steps to develop their career. The presenters were excellent and like most of the persons who attended, Sherri-Lynn’s story was very motivating and inspiring. Thank you all so much and continue on with what you are doing.
    As per our conversation yesterday, I would like to register for the CAP, can you please forward me the information for the upcoming (2019 and 2020) study and exam dates. Although I may not be able to make all the study groups due to work commitments, I would like to sit the October 2019 exam.
    Kindest regards,
    Deborah E. Bean
    Administrative Officer
  • Hi William,
    I just wanted to extend my sincerest Thank you for your 4th Annual Succeeding Professionally and Growing Personally Administrative Professional Seminar yesterday at Fairmont Southampton Princess Hotel.
    Wow! You and your team did an awesome job putting this event together. I enjoyed the entire event. Congratulations and Well Done!
    The speakers Chrissy Scivicque and Sherrie- Lynn Lilly were Fantastic! Wow! Sherrie – Lynn, she was incredible. What an inspiring speaker, that took my breath away. What a blessing from God!
    Jennifer Frias, Tina Ming, Terry Watson and Rebecca Cunha and all the CAP Awardees did a great job up on stage. All the lotto prizes were awesome. The Admin Jeopardy was fun!
    The President & CEO Mr. Warren Trace from Sirius added a powerful message too. Maybe adding in a short morning and afternoon break would be good. Just a suggestion
    In my opinion, though, the event was an overall success!
    PASSION + COMMITMENT = OPPORTUNITY – Love it!
    Best regards, Lucia Sousa Human Resources Generalist
  • Good afternoon Ms. Simons,
    Thank you for your kind email.
    I am so glad that I had the opportunity to attend the very organized and indeed spectacular event. There is no doubt in my mind that everyone in attendance took something away with them that was beneficial to them individually.
    Have a great day, and may every day be a day to shine.
    Kind regards,
    Marchelle Gibbons
    Administrative Assistant
  • Hi William,
    I really enjoyed the conference on Wednesday and agree it was the best one yet!
    You’re probably aware that IAAP now has a Recertification Portal for us to enter our points into. My profile has the Conference from 2017, so I need to add the information for last year and this year. Also, please correct me if I’m wrong, but since I got my CAP in March 2016, didn’t we discuss whether I could add the 5 points from that April conference as well?
    In any case, I would like to have a Certificate/ letter confirming my participation in the 2016 (if applicable), 2018 and 2019 AMA Conferences.
    Would you be able to arrange that for me?
    Thanks so much,
    Lisa Lambert
  • Morning William,
    What a great event. Congratulations to you and the other organisers.
    Many thanks.

  • The conference this year was amazing and I think everyone had a great time. I really got a lot out of it.
    The only negative feedback I have had is the time it takes for the raffles. Everyone loves the raffles for sure and I think they should definitely be done again, however, having to ask for a company rep every time in order to take a picture seems to take a lot of time. I think maybe if you just drew the raffles, throughout the day that is still good, but at the end of the day have 1 picture with all the winners and reps, or you could even divide it up and take a picture of all the Arch winners, then all the Markel winners etc. I think that would save so much time. Just a thought based on feedback I heard.
    Rebecca Cunha, CAP OM
  • Good Morning William,
    I truly enjoyed the conference this year and took with me some valuable “gems”.
    Thank you. Have a good day.
    Kind regards,
    Simone Fox
    Financial Assistance Clerk
  • I’d also like to congratulate you and your team for an outstanding conference this year. I’ve attended 3 and this was by far the best one – everything from the room’s atmosphere, the refreshments/lunch, and the dynamic speaker. I not only enjoyed the day but did pick up quite a few ‘diamonds’ that I have already put into practice in my office.
    Thank you for all of the hard work you and your team put into making this conference such a successful one.
    Kind regards,
    Monique Heyliger, CAP
    Administrative Support
  • Good day William,
    Trusting my email finds you well.
    I attended the session this year, as well as last year – are you able to provide me with Attendance Certificates / Certificates of participation?
    This year was great!!!
    Many thanks
    Claudelle Richardson
  • Hi William,
    I would like to congratulate you and your team on creating a very stimulating and successful conference. It was a good balance of sessions. Chrissy did an amazing job delivering the concepts and providing clarity and focus to a lot of this things EA’s have experienced over the years.
    Great job!!
    Please advise how I go about receiving credits for the day.
    Regards,
    Nicole Johnson, CAP, OM
    Executive Assistant
  • Good Day William,
    I have spoken to accounts and it has been sent down for payment. Yes once again the conference was very nice. I truly gained a wealth of knowledge.
    Kind Regards
    Shirmelle Gomes
    Surveillance Officer
  • William and the Administrative Professionals Day team,
    Thank you and your team for a wonderful Admin day! It was nice to listen and learn. I would also like to thank you for my Trailblazer Award and gift.
    Chrissy Scivicque was good and I took a lot away from her presentation however I feel she could have covered everything in the morning. It would be nice to have a learning workshop in the afternoon something on the latest Admin tools or technology.
    It was nice to hear the EA Panel and recent CAP designees talk about their path to success and sharing their tips and stories. Possibly focus on all admins in general as not everyone is in an EA role.
    Inspire! Bermuda did a great presentation so simple and so powerful and nicely geared to Admins.
    CAP Awardees – It is great to see so many passing the CAP exam, a great accomplishment.
    The C-Suite Partnership segment was excellent. I have been to many conferences over the years and I don’t think I have ever seen an Executive and his Admin together. It would be nice to see this happen again.
    The table set up was a little uncomfortable. If you were not in a spot facing the stage/screen you had to turn your chair so you could see without straining your neck.
    Lotto/Raffle draws – I feel the same as last year too many and a bit tedious and long.
    Admin Jeopardy was fun again a nice way to end the day.
    Kind regards,
    Valerie T. Masters CAP, OM
