A National Awards Program

National Recognition for High-Performing Admin+ Professionals
OfficeNinjas All-Star Awards is an online search for the most creative and strategy-minded executive assistants, office managers, administrative business partners, operations coordinators, and all other Admin+ professionals in the United States and Canada.
From thousands of nominations, we select five outstanding individuals and one stellar team to publicly recognize with an in-depth OfficeNinjas feature interview, global bragging rights, and a lavish prize package.
As EA to the CEO of Canadian Tire Corporation, Leanne Bailey is widely recognized as a “true partner” to her exec. In fact, he’s become much more than her boss over their years of working together; Leanne also calls him a friend and trusted confidante.
While she credits much of her success to partnering with the right people, she’s got a ton of wisdom to share on how to find your voice and feel confident using it — even when others may not agree with what you have to say.
Guided by a proactive attitude and a strategic approach, Leanne has created a career that allows her to show up at work as her authentic self every day. She also goes above-and-beyond to help other Admins find the same fulfillment in their roles.
Don’t miss Leanne’s refreshing and empowering take on the Admin+ profession.
“Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.”
As an Administrative Assistant at Noorda College of Osteopathic Medicine, Analane Powell embodies this quote. A constant source of support, strength, and reliability for everyone around her, Analane shines bright and makes a difference every day in her role.
But Analane is just as inspiring out of the office. An award-winning 4H volunteer and founder of her own charity making burial gowns for stillborn, preemie, and miscarried babies, Analane puts a remarkable amount of good out into the world.
Get ready to go up-close-and-personal with the amazing Analane.

Should you stay comfortably rooted or step into the unknown?
Amanda Nunez faced this very question when contemplating whether to stay at a job she loved, or make the leap to a completely new and unknown position.
Amanda leapt, and changed the trajectory of her career and life in the process.
When she made that fateful choice to join Roblox as its first EA, Amanda could never have known that just 5 years later she’d not only be EA to the CEO leading a team of 20+ Admins, but would also have played a pivotal role in helping the booming tech company scale through monumental growth.
Learn more about Amanda’s venture into uncertain career territory and its payoffs.
Sometimes life hits you with a curve ball and challenges you in completely unexpected ways. This is exactly what happened to Tyler Travis when she was diagnosed with a debilitating autoimmune disease.
While it wasn’t easy, this EA to the CEO at the Oliver Gal Artist Co. turned a huge obstacle into an unique opportunity to carve out a valued career, while also allowing her to prioritize her health and family.
And she does it all while also being an advocate for an entire community of people who share her condition.
Prepare to be inspired and uplifted by Tyler’s illuminating interview.
