National VA Conference 2008

27 04 2008

I was one of the many Virtual PA’s that descended on Milton Keynes for the 2nd National VA Conference and Awards ceremony on 19th April 2008.  Virtual PA’s from as far as Ireland, North of England and South of England joined together for a day of workshops, networking and speakers about topics every virtual pa is interested in.

by Susie Barron-Stubley of Castalia Coaching, "Take Control, Make More Money & Set
Yourself Financially Free"
by Nicola Cairncross, The Money Gym.
Last year’s winner, Alexia Padgham, gave an inspiring talk about how winning the award had impacted on her and her business.
And then we had time to network. Among many, I met Angela Dawson, who’s a fellow member of the IAVA and regular CyberChatter, Athena members – Ingrid Griffin (North Cotswolds), Gerry Hyde  (Maidenhead), fellow Herts VA XChange – Kim Norris, newbies from Herts – Mary Moody & Alison Murray who are going to join our VA XChange group.

Came away feeling somewhat exhausted, much enlightened, goody-bag in my paw and a very sore bum from sitting still for so long!
