Great Expectation Speakers and Trainers, Office Professionals Brisbane annual breakfast

Friday the 4th of May 2018 not only marked Office Professional’s day in Australia but was also the day for the Great Expectation Speakers and Trainers, Office Professionals Brisbane annual breakfast. PA Pages was delighted to be an official media partner again this year which marks the second year of supporting this great event.

With 420 Office Professionals in attendance and the event held at the gorgeous Brisbane City Hall, the Office Professionals Brisbane breakfast was a fabulous way to celebrate being an Office Professional.

A fun way to start the morning

The morning entertainment kicked off with a show by speed painter Brad Blaze. If you are old enough to remember, think Mr Squiggle on steroids! In short Brad’s talent is nothing short of spectacular.

His show started off with an upside-down painting of Connie Johnson and then ended with what I thought was going to be a glow in the dark image. Once complete it turned out to be a painting using glue where he revealed the painting in a dazzling shower of glitter!

While some people might be sceptical of a painter for entertainment, the suspense is built while music is played and through trying to guess who the picture is. In the 3-5 minutes, it takes Brad to reveal his art the music and guessing will keep you more than entertained.

Authentic and real

The featured speaker for the morning was none other than Sam Johnson.

While many of us remember Sam in his debut on the Secret Life of Us, most will know him from his award-winning role of Molly Meldrum or through his incredible work with his sister Connie through Love Your Sister. Sam’s session was a natural and entertaining talk about his journey to stardom and how he and his sister have raised millions through their charity Love Your Sister.

Sam’s stories of how they raised funds, created one of what I would consider the most successful events EVER, taught delegates about the need and benefit of really thinking outside the box when it comes to creating or providing a solution.

What made this event so great was a mix of things. These include the venue, excellent organisation, great entertainment and Sam’s raw honesty and passion for what he does. It really does shine through when he speaks.

Tip – Be sure to get to the event earlier or on time because there is an excellent opportunity to network. Not to mention an opportunity to find out about some great suppliers and resources that might help you in your role.

With next year’s speaker announced this event is a treat you don’t want to miss. Lock it into your calendar and put a business case to the boss now to reward the team or just grab a friend and reward yourself! Registration to the 2019 brekkie opens soon so be sure to keep up to date on their website here.
