What to Expect

This breakfast event is an opportunity for managers, corporate and government organisations to show their thanks and appreciation to their teams. This is a breakfast event not to be missed!

Join a community that continues to support, network and celebrate their involvement throughout the year.

The inaugural Office Professionals Breakfast was held in 2015, and it was a tremendous success. It is now a highly anticipated event amongst the Brisbane business community.

OPB recognises and rewards the hard-working Office Professionals of Brisbane. There really hasn’t been any recognition for the work they do - until now.

“In our work at Great Expectation Speakers and Trainers, we know many dedicated office professionals who put in the hard yards, and we've always thought this should be recognised. This breakfast is a way for CEO’s and management to acknowledge the role office professionals do within the business."

Event founder, Marg Booth

2019 Guest Speaker

Libby Moore

Former Chief of Staff to Oprah Winfrey

Libby Moore spent over a decade by Oprah’s side while being exposed to some of the greatest thought leaders of our time. 

During this time, she managed a team of five assistants, as well as coordinated several other teams; security, aviation, properties, and was the key liaison for Ms. Winfrey.

In 2017 Libby was named as one of the honourees of, 40 Women over 40 to Watch on a list of disruptors and innovators.

At OPB 2019 Libby shared her experiences of what it was like working with a global icon.

OPB is a great opportunity to meet likeminded people to enjoy your morning with - I had a blast and look forward to the next event!

This was my first OPB breakfast and it did not disappoint! What a fantastic way for organisations to show their appreciation and thanks to their Office Professionals by sending them to this breakfast. I highly recommend and am looking forward to attending in the years to come. Well done Marg and team!

Jenna Reilly (GHD)

This is my first OPB. I left energised, inspired and with a prize. I can't wait for next year and am already working out who will be on my table. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Heather Munro (Resources Training Council)

My first, but certainly not my last OPB. What a wonderful opportunity for like-minded peers and professionals to connect.
