Past National Trainings & Events


ima AGM 22

Annual AGM & Spring Training Day - 

The event was held f2f since we had had lot of members who told us how keen they were on meeting in person again. Therefor, the National Committee has decided to meet up in person again to strengthen the feeling of community.

In the afternoon, from 1.30 to 4.30pm we were joined by Judith Raymakers from Motivators@Work Who we are - MOTIVATORS@WORK (

Motivators@Work envisages a world where people look forward to going back to work on a Monday morning, to interact with their colleagues and create great things together.

Based on long years of experience working with teams within different organizations and cultures, they have developed their “Roots & Fruits Methodology” to increase motivation at work.

In their workshops, we got an insight on the following topics:

  • Learning and understanding the universal drivers of motivation at work
  • Being able to diagnose where you and your organisation can improve motivation
  • Creating implementable solutions to achieve higher motivation in a sustainable way
  • And last but not least, easily connecting with each other and have fun

Motivators@Work – because we spend so much time at work, it’d better be worth it.

Spring National Training Day - Scanner personality & highly sensitive person

"I realized after many years in my professional career what my career booster was: I loved to work. I loved to have impact and be part of a successful team and I loved to be close to the center of power. What made me successful was the fact that I am a scanner personality and a highly sensitive person.''

Training Content:

An administrative professional is often called ‘the role with no job description’ because the responsibilities can vary so much. An assistant supporting an executive or a team needs to be prepared to expect the unexpected.

Words to describe the person behind the role are often versatility, universality, adaptability, improvisation, intuition, and many more. Successful Administrative Professionals are fast and pro-active thinkers, love diversified challenges and situations and orchestrate their ‘dashboard’ with sovereignty, intuition and ease.

During the IMA Training Day, Katrin Stigge shared the gifts, talents and challenges of scanner personalities and highly sensitive persons. She took us through the science behind these personalities and introduced two meaningful tools which will raise self-awareness and self-esteem, and will create a foundation for next steps in our professional career. It was a highly interactive workshop, followed by a Q&A session.
