|Thank your hard working administration staff with a scrumptious hot breakfast! - - 6/04/2010|
Stop for a moment and think about what life would be like without administrative staff. Most likely youâ€™ve conjured up some kind of hectic imagery. Simply put, these employees make such an enormous contribution to our workplaces and praise for their hard work is often unsung.
For the first time in the Glenelg Shire, United Way Glenelg together with Committee for Portland will be hosting a breakfast and encouraging all bosses to say thanks to their staff by taking them along to enjoy a scrumptious hot breakfast with the chance to walk away with an armful of prizes. The morning aims at both thanking and honoring these wonderful people.
The event will be held on Wednesday 21st April 2010 at the Richmond Henty Hotel, Blue Room overlooking the beautiful Portland harbor and begin at 7.00am where guests will have the opportunity to network with other Administrative staff. The event is proudly presented by Committee for Portland with special guest speaker Dr Rhonda Galbally AO. Tickets are $40 per person or $280 for table of 8.
