I’ve had fortune to attend a couple of outstanding REBarcamps in the US over the last year and a bit, and I gotta say I’ve loved every minute of them.
They’ve been a great networking experience, but most of all they’ve been a great learning and sharing experience. What I’ve found at the Bar Camps I’ve attended is that there’s been at least 10 other people in each break out session that have had the same or similar questions or ideas that I have. How cool to learn and share with your peers that are faced with the same challenges. They say 2 heads are better than 1.. Well, Try it with 200. Its AWESOME!
I thought I’d share a few ideas on why I think you should register today to attend the Inaugural Australian REBarcamp.
1 to network with fellow real estate practitioners seeking to increase their knowledge particularly in the area of the effective use of technology and social media.
2 to engage in healthy debate around industry trends with industry peers, leaders and key stakeholders.
3 to be exposed to cutting edge ideas and concepts around where the new tech tools of today can take a business today and beyond
4 to be challenged about whether your business practices of this year will cut it next year.
5 To enjoy the opportunity to share in a social, no pressure, brand agnostic environment.
6 To engage in healthy debate in a peer to peer environment.
7 To network with like minded professionals.
This is a great opportunity for you to join in a great ‘Think Tank’.
If you’re thinking of coming to Bar Camp (and we really hope that you are!) its really important to remind you that REBarcamp is a ‘Participatory’ event. Make sure you come with an attitude of preparedness to share, learn and generally participate. If you ‘give’, I promise that if you ‘participate and give’ then you’ll get at least 5 times what you gave in return. If however you sit on your tail bone, then you’ll get nothing other than a sore tail bone.
Interested to see who’s already registered?.. Click here... It’s an impressive crew so far!
Of particular note in our wonderful list of attendees is a colleague by the name of Jeff Turner who I met at the 2009 NAR Annual Conference in San Diego.
Jeff is coming all the way from the USA join us and to launch the REBarcamp concept into Australia. Jeff is one of the most highly sought after presenters and true thought leaders in the USA, particularly in the area of social media in the real estate community. We are honoured that Jeff is coming out to join us.
We have limited space available for registrants at the Inaugural REBarcamp and tickets (which are free) are moving quickly. Click here to register to attend (while there are still seats)
Our hard working organising team of Peter Fletcher, Lara Scott, Greg Vincent, Tatiana Mijalica, Ben Stockdale and myself are working busily behind the scenes to ensure that our first REBarcamp is an absolute hit. We’re that confident its going to be a roaring success that we’re already mapping dates for Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne for mid year.
Get on board! I promise you’ll be really sorry if you miss this EVENT!.
