Australian VA Conference 2014 Wrap Up

Well, it’s hard to believe that another Australian Virtual Assistant Conference has come and gone! The fifth annual event was held in sunny Brisbane for the first time, with a record number of 55 delegates in attendance.

Two days of inspiring speakers and presentations lead us through the worlds of health & wellbeing, finance, marketing, business, Social Media, organisation, self-defence and more.

It was a coming together of like-minded business owners, keen to improve their skills and learn new ones. The industry event is key for forging business relationships, sharing advice and most of all, having a good time. The nature of being a Virtual Assistant means that face-to-face connections with colleagues and partners are rare, so AVAC is the perfect opportunity to mingle in the real world!

So, I am now armed with lots of information to process and implement over the coming year. And the cherry on top was winning an amazing training program courtesy of American VA coach, Donna Toothaker.

We’d like to send a huge thank you to all of the organisers, speakers and sponsors who came together to make AVAC 2014 a success. And a special thank you must go out to Kathie M. Thomas and Anita Kilkenny from the Australian Virtual Assistants Association for their continued hard work.


AVAC 2015 will be held at Melbourne’s Docklands.
