The Officials empowers administrative professionals and their companies through community, courses and coaching. We launched to disrupt the industry with affordable and accessible training for the 60% of our industry’s workforce who work in small to medium businesses and are not always afforded an extensive training budget.
The Officials was launched in 2015 as a community for administrative professionals to share knowledge, build connections, and find support from an army of admins.
Over the years The Officials has expanded to offer our affordable online training platform, mentorship, corporate training, live events and more.

The Officials Mentorship Program was created to help you unlock your potential through one-to-one supportive guidance, encouragement, training and introspective activities.
Lauren Bradley, Founder
I know you want to be the best admin you can possibly be, whether that’s being ultra-organized or sharing your ideas with the leadership team. I know the role of an admin can sometimes be frustrating especially when you do not have a manager or mentor that understands your role. It can be so rewarding one day and lonely and frustrating the next.
That’s why I started The Officials – a unique platform for admins and assistants to come together to chat, learn and grow.
So who am I? Just think of me as your office bestie, the trusted colleague who will roll my desk chair up to yours and share my lunch when you can’t get away from your desk. I give you my best tips, my documents and my templates.
A bit about me
- I love calling all dogs puppies
- I enjoy reading fantasy books with maps in the front of them
- I love a puzzles and games
- I am obsessed with helping through professional problem solving
Yes, I’m a natural problem-solver, which is why I love being an assistant and what draws me to help other admins and assistants in the world.
