“Beyond sharing the latest timesaving Microsoft shortcuts and best practices, I’m really looking forward to connecting with many of the assistants, administrators, and vendors that will be there – not to mention the show room itself.  It’s beautiful and vibrant,” says Vickie Sokol Evans, founder of RedCape  

"Looking out across the theatre I was in awe at how much power, expertise and knowledge were in my audiences!  office* is a wonderful opportunity to really reach out and connect with the most important people who run the circus of any business – the assistants who perform magic and miracles on a daily basis to, quite simply, get things done," says Angela Garry, CEO & PA Trainer at Pica Aurum, Author The PA & EA Circus and Brave PAs.  

“The atmosphere at office* is friendly, welcoming and there is always such a buzz in the air.  I love imparting my knowledge, as well as learning from others.  And, of course, the networking with like-minded people is phenomenal.  I look forward to visiting the exhibitors and learning what they have to offer, as well as attending the many free Keynotes, which are always interesting and relevant.  It’s one of the highlights of my year!” says Sue France, co-owner of S&S in2training.
