Ever heard someone say “yeah the conference was good but I had this amazing conversation with XXX in the hallway after one of the sessions”.
Without getting into an exchange on the relative pros and cons of meeting formats I would like to suggest that you approach RE BarCamp as one giant hallway conversation of learning. We will all learn different things on the day no matter what level of expertise we have in a particular area we may know next to nothing about another one. Diverse content will provide something for everyone at RE BarCamp.
Hallways conversations are different – there is a certain equality to them, different opinions on a subject can be shared and explored as people enter the hallway and join in the discussion. Equally if the conversation bores you – walk away. Each session at RE BarCamp will be like that PLUS there will also be more hallway conversations during breaks and at the end of the day.
There is no set agenda for RE BarCamp Sydney. Our current hallway list of session ideas centre around technology but it is not exhaustive nor it is necessarily going to define what happens on the day. Someone has already commented that there is “More to real estate than online guys – Guerilla Marketing (offline) that gets through – Killer Open Houses – Negotiation Mastery – Autopilot systems of contact”. Fair cop. Others have suggested Becoming a LinkedIn Super User, Property Management, Attraction of Staff/Recruitment, Hyperlocal Business and Community Marketing.
As a user-generated event the session content will come together on the day. As a delegate the most important thing to remember is that this is not a passive workshop format. Come, ready to start a hallway conversation and set the agenda along with everyone else attending.
