Developing Habits and Crushing Goals

Everything you do — from the way you manage your to-do list to your email response routine — determines the trajectory of your career. Are those habits propelling you forward or holding you back?

Whether you need to maintain positive career habits or ditch the duds, we’ve got you covered with research, strategy, tech tools, and our most powerful resource — your fellow Ninjas.

Join us for an evening of drinks, tasty bites, and what promises to be a lively discussion.

Word on the Street

Admingling was so much fun! It was wrapped up in a nice little package … the food, laughter, networking and open forum — all covered in two short hours. I went in knowing no-one and came out feeling like I had known these Ninjas forever. It’s nice to know what’s going on outside the four walls we’re in everyday. Connecting with other admins is priceless in so many ways!

Dana L.
Executive Assistant

So excited to be a part of this group of phenomenal Office Ninjas supporting each other!! It’s a tremendous resource (and a lot of fun) for any executive assistant, office manager, or admin. Thanks for creating this group and making us admins — who often feel alone or on an island — feel valued and supported.

Office Manager

Admingling Tips

Maximize your Admingling experience with these simple tips!

1. Don’t forget to put the “mingling” in Admingling! Introduce yourself, swap business cards, and interact with each person in the room. You’re there to connect with other Ninjas, so be bold! The more you put into networking, the more you’ll get out of it.

2. Your fellow Ninjas are your best resources. Curious about another industry? Want to know what it’s like to work at a startup? Got a favorite app or vendor that’s completely changed your work life? Speak up, ask questions, and trade tips.

3. Cash in on peer-to-peer facetime. So many Ninjas work in a department of one, making peer support hard to find. Admingling is your chance to open up and share your questions, ideas, or concerns. You’ll gain new perspectives through the collective power of the group.

Register Here, Ninja

Unlike our larger shindigs, Adminglings are meant to be intimate in size. We cap the crowd to make sure everyone has the opportunity to speak up and be heard. Reserve your ticket before we sell out!

Need to convince your boss? Use this handy email template.

IMPORTANT! This event is exclusively for career admins (such as office managers, executive assistants, and operations pros). Each registration will be verified, and all non-admin signups will be automatically refunded.

Cracking Company Culture

Ninjas took in beautiful views of the Dallas skyline in between paper wad fights (one of our best icebreakers!) and conversations about the pros and cons of mergers and layoffs—and how they affect office life. Check out the photo album!

February 9, 2017

Processes & Productivity, Please!

Ninjas put “social” in The Social House by exploring productivity tech tools in the relaxed venue—with excellent munchies and drinks—that fueled the evening of laughs, introductions, and the lowdown on emotional intelligence and personal branding from speaker Linda Guynes, Executive Assistant to the CEO of The Container Store. Browse through our photo album.

Texas-Sized Ambition

November’s event is forever revered as the greatest personal coaching session known to man. Ninjas absolutely hit the jackpot here, as the All-Star panel showered them with actionable advice and inspirational tips needed for career growth in 2017. Browse through our photo album.

In on the Action

Some memories are better left unsaid, but some are hilarious to revisit. Ninjas shared crazy admin stories and acted them out—which inspired infectious laughter and revealed what topics are most pertinent to local administrative needs. Browse through our photo album.

July 22, 2015

Inaugural Admingling

This is the event that started it all—and it had a bit of everything. Ninjas remember it for a unique tech scavenger hunt and a discussion on current tech trends and their relevance to Ninjas. Browse through our photo album.

What's Admingling?

More structured than a happy hour but more social than a workshop, an Admingling event harnesses the power of our community’s collective intelligence. Every after-work event is unique; we work with Ninjas in each host city to pick a space that’s both comfortable and inspiring. Everything from the discussion topics to the cocktails is chosen with local perspective. Attendees share ideas, trade tips, and walk away with actionable solutions and a stack of new professional contacts.

Got Q's? We got A's

Do I have to be an Office Ninja to attend?

Yes! We designed Admingling specifically for Office Ninjas (e.g. executive assistants, office managers, operations managers, admins). If you don’t fall into any of those categories, sign up for our newsletter or consider sponsoring an event.

Will I meet other people in the same role and industry as me?

Admingling events connect you to administrative professionals across all industries and levels of experience. You’re bound to have things in common with other guests, but our events are known for their diversity.

What are the costs?

Each city’s inaugural event is free. Subsequent Admingling events will have a small admission fee to help cover basic event expenses including insurance, food, and printouts.

What's the refund policy?

Unfortunately, we're unable to offer refunds for high-demand events like Admingling. Mark that date with a Sharpie, and count on coming!

I’d like to bring my whole office crew. Can I sign up as a group?

Admingling is the perfect after-hours event for you and your Ninja squad. Each member of your party must sign up separately (and be quick—we have a first-come, first-serve policy).

How often do Admingling events happen?

Admingling is held on a quarterly basis in established cities. Volunteer Event Organizers make these events possible and help us scout out new territories for Admingling. Want to join the team? Learn more, and apply here.

How can I volunteer?

We’re so happy you asked! Volunteers are essential; they make each event unique by bringing local perspective to the planning process. If you’re interested in being a volunteer, please complete this form.

I'd like to sponsor Admingling! How do I sign up?
