Consider Alicia Jay’s perspective. A speaker at our event for the sixth time now, and also an attendee, she remarks, “VAVS is hands-down one of my favorite events! Tawnya and her team expertly curate topics that are relevant and timely for the VA community. Besides the practical insights from each session, the networking opportunities in between are fantastic. There’s always something new for both newbies and seasoned VAs at this event. It’s such a cost-effective way to elevate your business!”

Even Paula Cole-Miller chimes in: “The wealth of information and resources you provide for seasoned VAs like me is simply phenomenal! I feel like I’ve finally shattered the barriers holding back my success, and I am ready to propel myself to the next level!”

Not only newcomers but even those who’ve attended #VAVS multiple times find immense value in it. As Denise Postma says, “I’ve been attending #VAVS for the past 4 years or so. Each year I get more out of it. As I grow in my business, I find there is more I need to know and VAVS always delivers that information!”

So regardless of where you stand in your VA journey – whether you’re just starting out or are a seasoned pro – #VAVS has something valuable for you. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to revitalize your business with fresh insights and strategies!

If I can't make it this time, when will the next #VAVS be hosted?

#VAVS is an annual event, typically held in the fall. If your schedule doesn’t allow for participation this time, consider securing a VIP Ticket. This gives you access to recordings of all the sessions, allowing you to absorb all the wisdom and insights at a later time that suits you.

Remember, attending an industry conference like #VAVS should be a key part of your business plan and budget as a Virtual Assistant.

This summit is tailored for Virtual Assistants who are business owners providing remote administrative, technical, and/or creative support services. If that’s you, mark your calendars now for #VAVS!

What if I can't attend the event live? Will it be recorded?

Indeed, they are! Each of our 20 webinars is meticulously recorded. With a VIP ticket, you can access these recordings whenever your schedule permits. Do bear in mind, however, that free ticket holders will not have access to these recordings.

Helen Bailey speaks to this feature’s convenience: “Tawnya’s selection of VAs for the last series was an impressive assembly of knowledgeable professionals. Anticipating that I’d miss many of the live seminars, I quickly opted for the VIP package with all the replays. It’s been a relief to listen to these replays at my own pace. Whether you’re a VA seeking to broaden your skills or a business owner wanting to learn more, this series is for you. The investment is absolutely worthwhile for learning new tips and tricks to advance your business.”

Similarly, Michelle Mangen, who was unable to attend live sessions due to scheduling conflicts, praised the availability of replays: “Thanks to the recordings available for VIP ticket holders, I didn’t miss out on any valuable insights. It felt like having a personal coaching session that I could pause, replay and digest at my own convenience.”

So no worries if you can’t attend live. With the VIP ticket, you won’t miss out on anything. You’ll be able to tap into all the knowledge and experience shared during #VAVS at your own leisure!

Do you have any testimonials from previous attendees who found value in attending the Summit?

Absolutely, we have a wealth of testimonials from delighted attendees who found immense value in the Summit. These words from Gina Koran might resonate with you:

“I have been to loads of different trainings through the years and I can honestly say that I have never learned more than I did this week! Not only from the actual presenters, but in between when the speakers, Tawnya and Danielle would ask questions or just openly and freely share tips and ideas and anything and everything! I can honestly say that I came across VA Networking purely by accident–and I waffled for days about attending. It’s the best decision I could have made. I’m looking forward to being a VA Insider and cannot wait to see what else I can learn! Thank you to Tawnya, Danielle and all of the presenters AND the other attendees who share such great information!”

Gina’s experience is not unique. Many of our attendees echo her sentiments, highlighting not only the quality of our presenters but also the interactive environment that fosters exchange of ideas and sharing of wisdom. At #VAVS, learning is not confined to speaker sessions – it happens at every moment, in every interaction.

Beyond the scheduled sessions, we encourage participants to engage with speakers and fellow attendees.

Thank you, Tawnya, Danielle, and the Presenters for a fabulous Summit. I am on information overload. I kept thinking with each day, “This is incredible.” There was such an amazing amount of valuable content and business practices shared as well as tremendous motivation and camaraderie. And the Swag Bag! Wow! Thanks to all of the Contributors. Now to filter through everything. Digging in!

Tina Stringfellow


I am new to VA world and this was my first summit. Although I was attending these webinars late at night I still don’t regret not sleeping properly. If anything I am glad that I attended and learned so much. I join by chance and it gave me so many great opportunities to meet such great VAs and amazing panelists. Can’t wait to be here next time again. Thank you for an awesome week!

Anum Khan

What a week! Amazing hosts and speakers, including pioneers and leaders in the virtual assistant industry. All highly accomplished, respected, and successful in their fields and niches. They presented a wealth of information on things marketing, sales, systems, finances, mindset, and more. Every session was relevant for all VAs – from aspiring to established – looking to improve, grow, and be happier and more successful in their businesses. I came away with enough to explore and implement for an entire year and beyond. Certainly until the next VAVS! I’m so glad I took the time to attend live; it was well worth the commitment. The Q&A, as well as the chats with the speakers, hosts and other attendees, were awesome. I made new and renewed connections. And now I have the recordings and speaker notes for replay and reference. Not to mention the generous speaker, host, and sponsor goodies. VAVS was invaluable, invigorating, and inspiring. Till next year! 

Denise Aday

I am truly enjoying myself, learning new techniques, getting updated industry information and reconfirming things I already knew. The speakers are ALL Excellent and Experts in their Niche. Thanks for Hosting the #VAVS Symposium Webinar!

Shelyta VanHorn

From the perspective of being a speaker as well as an attendee, VAVS is one of my absolute favorite events! Tawnya and her team do an incredible job of selecting topics that are important and timely for the VA community as well as keeping things running smoothly. Besides the actionable info I take away from each speaker session, the networking that happens in between is wonderful. There’s always info for new and seasoned VAs at this event. It’s such a cost effective way to advance your business!

Alicia Jay

Thank you for your hard work creating and facilitating VAVS. I was able to enjoy every day except Friday when other commitments made it impossible. The content was great as was the selection of speakers. Winning a prize wasn’t bad either!

Belinda Mikel

What you offer person’s like myself trying to enter this arena, is absolutely phenomenal! The amount of information and resources you so freely share is highly commendable! I feel like I have finally “broken through the membrane” of whatever has been trying to “railroad” my success and I know that my perseverance will absolutely pay off!  I am so ready to go to the next level of implementation, even though I still have a lot of information to digest, but you have to start somewhere, right!  I am ready to fully commit to being an active participant and a good protégé! All of my interactions with your organization have been positive and supportive, and that speaks volumes to me!

Paula Cole-Miller

I am writing this to say how much I enjoyed the #VAVS this year. Of all the presentations at #VAVS,  The information was extremely informative, detailed, insightful, and highly motivating. 

Carol Young

I just want to thank you for the awesome summit – again!! This is my second one, and I have never been disappointed. I already have it marked off in Oct next year, and of course, I plan it in my budget This is more than just business information, it’s like a family reunion!! I’m so sad today is the last day. You two get some rest over the weekend, you certainly deserve it!!

Tammy Rourk

This is a FABULOUS event! The wide range of speakers gives any VA some new tools to improve his/her business. The 2020 event provided great ways to build your business through Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Instagram. There were also some excellent technical sessions on using Canva and WordPress. This is a must-attend for any VA.

James Edgar

20 Amazing Speakers!

BUT for a Limited Time…

For a very low cost, I got an excellent amount of professional education attending the Virtual Assistant Virtuosos. This conference provided a fantastic opportunity to come together with other like-minded enthusiasts in the industry. To be able to hear from experts sharing their experience, leveraging their knowledge and apply the different methods to my business endeavor. What can I say, THANK YOU! All the speakers shared a tremendous amount of knowledge and presented information in a way that is understandable. I took away an incredible amount of info, that will genuinely assist in making my business more successful.

Angela Atanasio Medeiros

I am on day 2 and I have learned a great deal. I am looking at starting up in the new year and the webinars have answered many questions and made me look at things I had no idea about. The online side chats are amazing, especially when the experienced VAs provide tips, tools, and websites…thank you to all and especially Tawnya and Danielle

Azita Pellicano

If I had to describe #VAVS in one word it would be WOW! I gained so much useful information during the week we spent together. The speakers were top notch and personable and very generous with their freebies. I appreciated the extra time they took out of their busy schedules to answer questions and to ‘hang out’.

I have so many takeaways! Following are just a few: think positive about my business, set firm boundaries and office hours, find a referral partner in the same niche but with different skills, it’s possible to have a successful VA business being an introvert, separate your personal and business expenses, start a blog, just start writing and write every day, a blog is the beginning of any successful social media strategy, so many new systems that I can’t wait to look into them all, what it takes to be a Real Estate VA, setting up Facebook Ads, passive income streams, focus and finish my website (Just Do It!) and so much more.

Although I am on the quieter side, a true introvert, I especially enjoyed the discussions, both on topic and off, with the other VA’s. I can’t tell you how happy I am that I took the time and joined #VAVS it was time and money well spent! Tawnya and Danielle are the best!

Vicki Langberg Strategic Solutions

I truly believe that you have outdone yourself! I attended my first VAVS in October and thought, how much more could I hear that I haven’t already heard, but, I HEARD PLENTY at the next VAVS! Not only did you and Danielle put together another flawless conference, but, all the speakers, EVERY ONE, gave us phenomenal information, insight and the desire to learn more and more! I especially liked the “Homework/Accountability Sheet”. It’s a ‘keeper’! The Chat Area enabled us to meet and greet one another, as well as have some good laughs! Thanks again to you, Danielle and all the wonderful presenters. It was well worth the time and money!

Karen Kannegiesser

Just wanted to say how much I totally enjoyed your event this week. I can’t imagine how much work goes into this!  YIKERS!  But I really had a blast.  I didn’t realize how much I miss these.  

Diana Ennen

First, thank you for being so generous and allowing us to enjoy the entire 5-day VAVS Summit at the Silver level for free! It was an information packed week. I loved how you all worked as a team to deal with the challenges of technology and “life” issues to keep pressing forward. I not only left with a wealth of information but with new colleague contacts from all over the world as well. I also appreciate that I had an opportunity during the week to upgrade to Gold level to receive access to the Swag Bag and recorded videos. Thank you and I look forward to next year!

Sydina Williams

The summit has been excellent- a wide variety of topics, and great speakers. But the genuine niceness and sense of family/community/uplifting others by Tawnya is perhaps the best feature of all.

Trudie Yount

This summit was great! Thanks so much for offering the Silver ticket! Without that I would not have been able to attend and learn what I did. I truly enjoyed the “5 Stages of a VA Success Journey” It clarified some things for me. Your summit has added value to my life, given me a few more pieces of the puzzle to put in place to find the best me I can offer. From the marketing seminar I have ideas of services I can add to my general offerings. Kristy’s session at the end was amazing!! I learned so much about myself, she helped me get into the right mindset. She was interesting, thorough, methodical, excited and helped me connect the work that has to be done on myself – putting into words – my vision, my mission, my goals and expanding that to my business vision, mission and goals, seeing how it all fits together, now I can go back and do the work to start my VA business off the right way. Thanks so much for putting this together and being such an incredible host and authentic person.!! Looking forward to continuing to learn and grow!

Dianne Bennet

This was my very first virtual conference ever – what an amazing introduction!! I learned so much and was so impressed with the quality of the presentations. The people I “met” through the chats were so helpful and friendly. It really was so worth the price! I am so thankful for all the hard work Tawnya puts into these conferences.

Kellie Evetts

Just want to say for the past 2.5 years I’ve enjoyed all the relevant knowledge at #VAVS from your membership and will continue to do so for as long as I can. Thank you VA Networking and ALL your staff.

Mary Ryan

The experts that spoke at the conference this season were superb! Many kudos to each one who presented such information-rich presentations.  The only thing left for me to do after such a great conference is put all the tips and tricks to work!  Thanks to you, Tawnya, for creating a great way for VAs to connect.  Yea, Tawnya!  You are awesome!! 

Deborah Donaldson

Fantastic week. #VAVS was the best ever week of presentations of any kind that I have ever taken. Well worth the price. Love the speakers. Love the presentations. Love the Speakers’ offer. Love love love the chat.

Dominique Dabolczi-Fekete

Thank you so much for putting on a great event! I learned a ton from the speakers I’ve watched so far. And these gifts are extremely helpful, too! Thank you!

Heather Bokon

This was my first time and it was filled with an overwhelming amount of great information and inspiring speakers. I loved how everyone is down to earth and is wanting to do what they can to help each other succeed. I could not watch the live webinars but I wish I could have as the relationship building is so important. Next time for sure. Thank you to all the speakers, Tawnya and to everyone who helped make this event a success. I look forward to the next one!

Thank you for everything this week. It was totally amazing. Every speaker brought their A game. I can’t wait for the next one and would love to speak.
