“Best time, ever,” said no-one who’s been stuck at a stiff networking event.
There’s a reason you cringe at the thought of showing up at a sub-standard networking shindig. But Ninjas need to mingle too, right? That’s why we’re stoked to kick off our #Admingling series again this year. These relaxed, after-work events bring the what: discussions on topics that are important to Office Ninjas. And, they aren’t complete without the who. In other words, you!
The term “Office Ninja” is broadly defined, which makes our community incredibly diverse and dynamic. Our goal is to help Ninjas from varying industries and backgrounds make the connections needed to continue to grow and succeed in their field—without making you feel like you’re at a ‘networking’ event.
Not sure if you’re a Ninja? Well, we’re talking about office managers, executive assistants, virtual assistants, operations managers, and even happiness coordinators—so if your job falls under a similar title, we want to see you there!
– Get to know your fellow Ninjas at a relaxed, mid-week meetup
– Enjoy great food and frosty drinks at a fun location
– Talk shop on topics that are important to you—that only other Ninjas would ‘get’
Come out with an admin crew or fly solo—we’ll break the ice with a fun networking challenge!
Best of all—these events are for Office Ninjas only! But you must register in order to attend.

“Admingling wasn’t your typical networking event. It was fun without making you uncomfortable; light but professional; and educational without changing the fun vibe to heavy and clunky. I’m so glad that I attended. I’ve already told a couple of colleagues about it!” – Brenda, Executive Assistant
“I am so grateful OfficeNinjas exists! It’s so nice to be connected to a huge network of folks who understand the intricacy of my role, and can provide me with resources and creative ideas to help me survive and thrive.” – Holly, People Ops Manager
“We are often a party of 1 at our workplaces, and Admingling is a great opportunity to network with other admins, bounce ideas off each other, and learn new tricks of the trade.” – Zakiya, Executive Assistant
“Admingling is a great forum to share ideas and solutions – what may take one Ninja days to solve, another Ninja may already have a great fix. It is a catalyst for support.” – Ruthanna, Office Manager
Where should we host our next #Admingling meetup?
** Although we’re unable to respond to every comment, we do read each one, and will keep your requests in mind!
Please note we are just beginning to expand our Admingling program, and with such a small (but mighty!) team, we can’t make these events happen without your help.
If you love leading a team, have a solid network of diverse admins in your area, and contacts for fun venues and caterers who would want to collaborate, we want to hear from you!
