Boss of an Office: Overtime

Little Andromeda


18-19 July 2020

You are a busy important person, with lots of emails and important phone calls. You must be tired. You’ll be glad to hear that you can keep working after hours. Spend fifteen minutes in productivity heaven as the boss of an office, with your own private cubicle in Christchurch’s central business district.

No leadership experience required. Basic computer skills preferred. Send emails! Speak to your colleagues! Make important decisions!

Boss of an Office: Overtime is a tongue-in-cheek interactive office role-play, simulating a ‘working late’ experience for participants to experience one-by-one.

The original live version of Boss of an Office was presented in 2019. We were funded by Satellites to create and present the online version Boss of an Office: Work from Home during level 4 lockdown in NZ in April 2020. This version, Boss of an Office: Overtime is a hybrid of the live and online versions.

Participants book a 15 minute time slot,
