Laura Keynotes the 2019 IAAP Summit

Chicago, IL — Laura keynotes the 2019 IAAP Summit at the Gaylord National Harbor in Washington, DC. The International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) brings together over 1000 Administrative Professionals, or more accurately Strategic Business Partners to experience education and networking opportunities once a year at their annual summit.

Laura presented her signature keynote on leadership “Lead First” to a standing ovation. She focused on the force of leadership in the administrative profession – but not just in each of our offices but also in communities, schools, homes and how we can lead together and lift up an entire industry.

Response from the summit:

“I’m so glad IAAP was able to bring you in as our keynote speaker for Summit. I loved your book and it is certainly changing the way I am networking with others. Judging by the long line of members waiting to purchase your book, I think many others will be changed as well! Thank you very much for generously donating the profits to the IAAP Foundation.”


“Thank you for choosing to lift up the administrative profession on the world stage! I am blown away, humbled and very grateful for your donation to the IAAP Foundation. Your gift will help us continue to support admins and advance the profession.
“I always look at you for inspiration and determination. I really enjoyed your presentation.”
