4000 PAs in only two days

Andrew Kitchen 21.10.2015

The Morgan McKinley Office Support team were at Olympia on Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th October to take part in the prestigious Office* Exhibition.

Office* is firmly recognised as the UK’s leading event to forge meaningful business relationships and connect with thousands of commercially focused PAs, EAs, VAs & Office Managers.

The event coincided with National PA day and attracted professional Personal Assistants from around the world to deliver keynote speeches to 4000 attendees; Nelson Mandela’s ex PA, Stephen Hawking’s PA and former Apprentice star Margaret Mountford to name a few were in attendance.

What happened on the day?

By 8.30am the London Office Support team were all dressed and ready to go. On offer over the two days were CV Clinics, Interview Preparation Guides and Office Support Market updates.  Not only were the delegates able to take this information away in the form of helpful handouts, but the Office Support team were able to add valuable insights based on personal circumstances.

Value Add

Morgan McKinley’s very own People Director, Andrea Webb delivered an outstanding seminar to professionals who are actively involved in the hiring process within their own organisation. Andrea’s seminar prompted those Office Managers to visit the Morgan McKinley stand for more insight and knowledge in this area of which we specialise.

Aside from the recruitment and market knowledge that Morgan McKinley provided, we were also able to run a very exciting “business card drop” competition. The aim of the game was very simple: drop your business card into our glass vase and the lucky winner would receive an iPad Mini. As imagined, the competition proved very popular with over 600 business cards being dropped in!

4000 PAs in only two days

Congratulations to Claire Holloway on winning the iPad mini!

Overall, the Office* event was a huge landmark for the  Morgan McKinley Office Support team and allowed us to meet with professionals in the industry who required our specialist recruitment services from both a client and candidate perspective. The feedback has been overwhelming and it’s most certainly an exhibition that we look forward to attending next year.
