FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ADMINISTRATIVE TRAINING PIONEER, OFFICE DYNAMICS INTERNATIONAL, CELEBRATES UNLIKELY 30-YEAR ANNIVERSARY
On Thursday, June 4th, Office Dynamics International, a trailblazing leader in the field of training and development for administrative professionals, will celebrate its 30th business anniversary—an immeasurable feat considering the odds stacked against it.
Las Vegas (May 13, 2020) – Office Dynamics International, the globally recognized authority for administrative training and development, is celebrating its 30th year in business this week. This milestone is cited as a momentous surprise for all involved, including founder and CEO, Joan Burge.
“As a 100% woman-owned microbusiness creating a brand new niche in a competitive market for an audience widely disregarded 30 years ago, no one could imagine we’d survive…much less thrive!” says Burge.
Catering to Administrative Assistants, Executive Assistants, and other support professionals, Burge first spotted a gap in the training market in 1987 while working as an Executive Assistant herself. Determined to fill it, she created what are now considered two of the most well-respected, prestigious, and comprehensive training programs for this audience—The Star Achievement Series® and World Class Assistant™. Along with her 8 top-selling books, successful annual conference, coaching and consulting services, and numerous other offerings, Burge carved a unique and lucrative niche for herself, built a powerful international brand, and now proudly serves elite clients including Walt Disney World, Cisco Systems, The Boeing Company, Humana Inc., Procter & Gamble, Nationwide Insurance, Kindred Healthcare, and Sony Digital (among other Fortune 500 companies).
Along the way, the entrepreneur encountered massive and numerous setbacks that threatened the livelihood of the budding business: multiple relocations, the tragic loss of Dave Burge (Joan’s spouse and VP of Operations) to pancreatic cancer, and Joan’s own medical emergency that nearly took her life and forced the business to its knees in 2014.
Joan Burge is widely considered a visionary, the pioneer of administrative training and development, and a champion for the profession. Office Dynamics International continues to be the leading provider in what has become a rapidly growing niche market. Against all odds, the company and its fearless leader have survived and, indeed, thrived.
Office Dynamics is celebrating this unlikely 30-year anniversary by offering free monthly training webinars throughout 2020 as well as discounts on books, online training, and other materials found in its online Success Store. More events, giveaways, and celebratory surprises will be announced through OfficeDynamics.com.
