I’m really excited to be sharing this news about RE BarCamp with my Real Estate Agent Success Club readers because behind the scenes this event has been in the pipeline for over a year and today I am really proud to announce that it has now become a reality.
As you may know, over these past couple of years I’ve been travelling around the country teaching real estate agents about how they can embrace Social Media marketing and help them tackle some of the many challenges facing real estate agents and property managers when it comes to online real estate marketing.
As most of you may already know, I am very passionate about our industry and am constantly on the look out for changes in technology and what lies ahead for agents in the online space.
One of the things that I’ve enjoyed most about the training and consulting that I do is that I’m able to demistify the web for agents and share information not just from my personal experience but moreso the insights that I’ve learned via information and tips that others have openly shared with me.
Actually, it never ceases to amaze me how much information we can get from others over the internet if you look in the right spot or ask the right people the right way.
And it’s this openness of the web and information that has provided a format and the foundations upon which the concept of RE Bar Camp was founded over in the US and now I’m really proud to announce that it’s coming to Australia.
RE BarCamp is an open, no agenda format (an ‘unconference’) whereby agents, principals, property managers, suppliers, trainers, etc can meet up for FREE within an environment where debate, questioning, open discussion and sharing of ideas is encouraged.
The Re BarCamp ‘unconferences’ are usually scheduled around other events/conferences to make it easy for interstate travellers to remain for an extra day and the first RE Bar camp is no exception.
The first Australian RE BarCamp is being held on the 24th May 2011 (the day after AREC11) from 10am to 4pm at The Loft, 13 Lime Street, Kings Wharf, Sydney.
Behind the scenes a group of like-minded people (including myself) have been voluntarily working to bring this great, not-for-profit, learning environment to Australia so that the industry as a whole can benefit from sharing, collective thinking and openness.
I’m looking forward to sharing industry and topic opinions often talked about here at the Real Estate Agent Success Club, in person and hopefully meet up with members and readers of my articles.
Note: The RE BarCamp is a separate event entirely which means that you don’t have to be an AREC11 delegate to attend.
I hope to see you there.
Disclaimer: I am one out of a group of dedicated people who are passionately volunteering to bring this FREE event to life and are proud to be launching the whole RE BarCamp sharing environment to Australasian agents.
