Celebrating Administrative Professionals

Administrative Professionals are the backbone of most companies. Lucky for me, they are also the ones tasked with ordering gifts for clients and employees. Last week two Administrative Professionals at Microsoft called to order gifts. One set of gifts needed delivery to a business group arriving at a Seattle hotel, the other set needed delivery to Microsoft for Administrative Professionals Day. All of the questions I usually ask clients about budget, time frame, theme, color scheme, and details about the gift recipients were answered with cheerful dispatch by both women. I generated ideas that they liked, emailed sample pictures of the gifts, and refined details like gift tag messages and delivery time. Voila: beautiful, personalized gifts delivered on time and on budget.

Administrative Professionals: thanks for making what I do easy, collaborative, and fun!

    Beyond inspired graphics, Olive & Sinclair chocolates ARE tasty! Their flavored bars are intense, they even have a “Salt and Pepper” bar! If you’re a dark chocolate purist, go for their 67% or 75% dark chocolate bar. If you like secondary flavors in your dark chocolate, try their Coffee or Mexican Style (cinnamon & chili) bar.

    Are these chocolates as good as they look? I love the design of this packaging, and well buying chocolate you’ve not had before is a bit like buying a book you haven’t read or an album you haven’t heard…the cover becomes important.

    Gifts are very significant whether they are being given on formal events or on casual events. This is a very unique and good idea, gifting chocolates to corporate professionals. I like the packaging, it has taken me back in 1950s. 🙂
