Energized by the NAPO Conference!

Cheryl Returns from the 22nd Annual Conference and Organizing Exposition

Last week, I returned from the 22nd Annual Conference and Organizing Exposition in Columbus, OH.  This 4 day conference draws professional organizers from around the globe. It was a fantastic and motivating time of connecting with and networking with colleagues, learning about the latest trends and resources in the organizing industry,  practical education, and motivation from inspirational keynote speakers.

Keynote Speaker, Tim Sanders, former Chief Solutions Officer for Yahoo, kicked off the conference with an inspiring message, sharing his secrets to business relationship success.  Friday, Gina Schreck, “The Geek Chick”, continued to motivate and challenge the audience, with her message about the value of technology in communications, connections and the business environment.

I was able to attend several breakout sessions where I learned valuable information about serving the elderly population as a professional organizer, strategies to organize clients with ADD/ADHD and using the NSGCD (National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization), Clutter Hoarding scale. Finally, I was inspired and motivated by Krista Green, of Krista Green International Inc., a recognized expert in the field of Branding Productivity & Organizing and Business.

The Conference concluded with an upbeat and inspirational message from Monica Wofford, of Monica Wofford International, who showed us how “contagious confidence” can inspire us to be the best we can be.

It is my earnest hope, desire and goal to take the knowledge, skills, inspiration and motivation gained through the conference to be the best Professional Organizer that I can be in the coming year.  It is both a pleasure and a privilege to serve in this dynamic, growing industry.

Happy (and Organized!) Days!
