Administrative Professionals Celebrated at Luncheon

by Matthew Robertson

The Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce, The Manor and SPC Federal Credit Union celebrated Administrative Professionals Day on Wednesday with their annual luncheon at the Florence Center.

Several hundred people turned out for the event, which filled one of the Florence Center’s ballrooms.

In addition to vendors handing out promotional items to participants and the meal itself, the event featured several rounds of door prizes, which varied from gift boxes to tickets to the Carolina Havoc.

The speaker for Wednesday’s event was David Kahn, the founder of Counseling Center of Florence.

Kahn spoke on the subject of effective communication as well as effective listening, which he said was the key to all communications. Listening to respond, he said, is different from listening to comprehend and understand.

Kahn also spoke about distractions, such as cell phones, and how they get in the way of communicating and understanding.
