2017 Themes

Are you the last man standing? Are you Captaining Office Administratorship effectively?

As captain of a unit in office administration, the office professional needs to set out a vision for the office, needs to be intuitive, and needs to be like a duck which appears calm, while paddling underneath.  For ages, captains have been seen as embodying the 3 C’s – being Caring, Courageous, and Consistent. Are you a captain of your office, or are you waiting for your ship to sink your line manager and other staff, who report to him?

These are the big themes in 2017:

  • Project management
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Communication
  • Transformation and equity
  •  Becoming an office professional of worth: Understanding office dynamics, EQ, IQ & SQ.
  • Championing technology
