Secretaries Week

National Professional Secretaries Week and National Secretary’s Day was created in 1952 through the work of Harry F. Klemfuss of Young and Rubicam. Klemfuss recognized the importance and value of the position to a company or business. His goal was to encourage more women to become secretaries. Using his skill and experience in public relations, Klemfuss, promoted the values and importance of the job of secretaries. In doing so, he also created the holiday in recognition of the importance of secretaries.

Today, the title is changing and evolving. But, the recognition is equally important. There are two new terms in use today. They are “Administrative Professionals” and “Executive Admins”. The two names sometimes mean different roles and responsibilities to different companies. Both are broader terms, that encompass more positions than the original “Secretary” role.

The name change recognizes and acknowledges that the role has changed significantly since 1952, and for the better at that. And in Harry Klemfuss’ day, these postions were the realm of women. Today, you find some males in these positions.

The most common ways of recognizing your Administrative Professional(s) today are:

Flowers
Cards, often with shopping gift certificates
Take them to lunch
Candies
Assorted Gift Baskets

Hello My Singaporean Friends!

On February 22nd, 2010 I ordered flowers to be delivered to my girlfriend “Evelyn”. Recently I have come to fall in love with her. She is a co-worker of mine. Unfortunately, I live in the United States of America.

All I ask is that you folks please prepare Evelyn’s floral arrangement with great care and love. These flowers are the only way I am able to express my deepest feelings for her until I travel to Singapore in person.

Also, Evelyn begins her workday at 9:00 A.M. The sooner 24 Hours City Florist can deliver to her, the more time she will have to admire her surprise delivery!

Thank You in advance for taking care of me. This American is in love with a Singaporean Princess!

Sincerely,

Carl A. Mack.

By lighting the oil lamps, the Hindus are thanking the gods for the happiness, knowledge, peace and wealth that they have received. The Hindus consider Deepavali as one of the most important festivals to celebrate. You can send a deepavali hamper to your friends who observe Deepavali.

Sending flowers at midnight is a good way to make someone feel good and warm. It will create the feeling of surprise and freshen the heart and soul of recipient. We use flowers for different purpose such as gifts, decoration, sympathy, congratulation, etc. Be it anniversary, birthday, wedding ceremony or any other celebration time, flowers are considered as the perfect gift for every occasion.

Flowers can be gifted in several form and arrangements, according to the occasion and the requirements. Flowers are best gift to express yourself without saying anything. Flower can be gifted on any occasion as a gift without thinking twice. There is nothing comparable to flowers. This is best creation of nature that has its own attractiveness. The beauty and fragrance of flowers is warm and inviting. You can express any emotion with flowers whether it is best wishes or sympathy.

Giving flowers to someone reflect gifting the beauty of graceful designs, delight of colors and pleasure of sweet fragrance in his life. Flowers go beyond all the boundaries and barriers and spread their message of love and fragrance of goodness despite caste, creed, gender, and nationality. Even the illiterate people can also understand the language of flowers.

With the boom of the Internet, it becomes easy and convenient to send flowers to anytime when you want. Due to the ease and comfort of online shopping, it becomes the obvious choice of people when it comes to making their flower purchase.
