Perhaps the color purple was carefully selected for the Admin Awards since the theme of royalty was in all the details! The team did a great job in making every attendee feel special: red carpet, beautiful décor, swag, prizes, all splashed in shades of purple. Most notably, it was a lovely time to recognize & appreciate the professionals in all industries presently, before us and those forthcoming. The Admin Awards filled a much-needed niche. I Read More

Winning this award is the highlight of my career. It demonstrated to me that all the hard work, sacrifices and commitments matter to not only the person I’m supporting, but the broader EA community at large. I can’t get the smile off my face or hide the pride I feel in what I’ve achieved, and that my peers, colleagues and superiors felt it important to recognize me in this way.

The passion I have for this profession and sharing that passion with other Administrative Professionals has been the driving force that made me who I am today.

My overall experience of being part of the 2016 Silicon Valley Admin Awards was the best possible experience anyone could ever had taking in consideration I just recently entered this Administrative Field.

The Admin Awards is not just another award program. It’s the long awaited recognition for all of the hard working Administrative staff members at each and every business-not just in the Silicon Valley but all around the world. Being nominated is the little pat on the back that says “Thank you, we see all of your hard work and efforts each and every day”

Oh My!! You all do so much!! The event was amazing. Whomever was in charge of the details should get a raise – ALL of you!! It was really something to be proud of. My boss, the CEO, said that she goes to many of these events and “they are so yawn.” She said this was THEEE most amazing thing she’s ever been to. Thank you for all you do. This was such an honor.
Terry Christiansen Executive Assistant, El Camino Hospital March 13, 2017
After I volunteered as a prize runner for the Admin Awards, I thought to myself and told my mom, I want to be an Executive Assistant when I grow up. That being an assistant is more fun, and appreciated than it appears. My mom is an Executive Assistant and until I saw the appreciation they received and deserve during the Admin Awards, I always thought it was an unappreciated and difficult job. During the Admin Read More
