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!

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

2020 Guest Speaker - a Q&A with Maggie Beer

Maggie Beer is a self-taught cook, food author, restaurateur and food producer. Before becoming immersed in the world of food, one of her roles was employed as Assistant to the General Manager of Ansett General Aviation.

Her Pheasant Farm Restaurant has won awards, and her Barossa business has produced a range of speciality gourmet foods. She's the author of ten books, co-stared in The Cook and The Chef TV show, and her numerous appearances on MasterChef Australia have set new ratings records for the episodes she featured in.
Maggie is now co-host of The Great Australian Bake Off.

In 2014 Maggie established her own foundation; Maggie Beer Foundation, to provide the pleasure of a good food life for all, regardless of age or health restrictions.

We're delighted to welcome Maggie for an informative Q&A session at OPB 2020.

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 is my 3rd year attending OPB, and every year it just gets better and better.

Nicole Carr (Quest Chermside)

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.
