DYMO National Organising Week
A whole week dedicated to getting organised! Thank goodness for the 5th annual National Organising Week (NOW). We hope you made the most of the activities around Australia and online. Here is a summary of how the week unfolded:
DYMO and Peter Walsh
National Organising Week sponsor, DYMO, brought organising expert, Peter Walsh to Australia. Peter visited Melbourne and Sydney for corporate breakfasts, speaking engagements and media appearances. Some of AAPO’s lucky volunteers attended the breakfasts as guests of DYMO (see below).

Five Step Organising Challenge:
AAPO’s Five Step Organising Challenge on Facebook had 127 people RSVP and saw our social media traffic triple in the lead up to and during NOW. Visit AAPOs Facebook Page to see all the activity on the event page. We congratulate all our participants on their effort to get organised and especially those brave enough to post their stories along with before and after transformations. We’re hoping to bring you a bigger, better challenge next year.
NOW Event Calendar and AAPO volunteers:
During NOW AAPO members held workshops, presentations and Ask an Organiser stands in locations around the country. The orange t-shirts worn by our members packed a punch, you couldn’t miss them! Forum members in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth were the biggest contributors. Three AAPO members who make up the Hills Organising Network had a full house at their Organising on a Shoestring seminar at Castle Hill Community Library – Congratulations girls!
