Clarke shares in­vest­ment tips

Herald Sun - Property - - NEWS -

FOR­MER Aus­tralia Cricket cap­tain Michael Clarke is the star re­cruit for this year’s Aus­tralian Real Es­tate Con­fer­ence, AREC.

Mr Clarke will join a di­verse range of speak­ers who will re­veal their se­crets of suc­cess be­fore more than 3000 real es­tate agents at the in­dus­try con­fer­ence, themed Rain­mak­ers.

He will “trans­late’’ his sport­ing lead­er­ship to elite busi­ness per­for­mance and talk about the tools needed to get your team mov­ing fast when fail­ure is loom­ing.

AREC founder and chief ex­ec­u­tive of McGrath Real Es­tate John McGrath said Clarke would be one of 35 world-class speak­ers im­part­ing their knowl­edge on how to be at the fore­front of busi­ness.

“AREC 2016 brings to­gether a hand-se­lected group of vi­sion­ar­ies who are shap­ing the real es­tate in­dus­try by dis­rupt­ing the sta­tus quo,’’ he said. “It’s not about break­ing the rules any more, it’s about mak­ing new ones.’’

To be held on the Gold Coast next month, the event will fo­cus on five themes: ne­go­ti­a­tion; list­ing mas­tery; prof­itable time man­age­ment; so­cial and dig­i­tal me­dia game chang­ers; and team build­ing and peo­ple man­age­ment.

Mo­ti­va­tional speak­ers will join a host of Aus­tralasian real es­tate in­dus­try iden­ti­ties over the two-day event.

The con­fer­ence will be opened by Robin Banks, one of the world’s lead­ing au­thor­i­ties on the sub­ject of mind power and per­sonal mas­tery. Mr Banks said his key mes­sage was that ev­ery­one had un­lim­ited power at their dis­posal.

“My mis­sion is to be a cat­a­lyst for peo­ple to recog­nise their own greatness, take charge of their lives and cre­ate a pow­er­ful fu­ture for them­selves and their com­mu­nity,’’ he said.

Mr Clarke and Mr Banks will be joined by Aus­tralian in­ter­net en­tre­pre­neur Daniel Pe­tre, the star of Mil­lion Dol­lar List­ing New York Fredrik Ek­lund and Earth Hour founder Nigel Marsh.

Real es­tate coach and News Corp man­ager Tom Panos will host the event.

He said part of his role would be to en­sure au­di­ence mem­bers took the main points from each pre­sen­ta­tion and built per­sonal ac­tion plans be­fore they left.

“The lineup of speak­ers at AREC 2016 is about con­tent, con­tent, con­tent,’’ Mr Panos said.

“Yes, you will be in­spired and mo­ti­vated, but the theme is about the what and how of Aus­tralia’s best and fastest grow­ing agents. What they do and how they do it.’’

AREC started 19 years ago and next month’s event will be its fifth year on the Gold Coast.

Ni­chola Byrne, gen­eral man­ager of To­tal Real Es­tate Train­ing, the or­gan­iser of AREC, said the Gold Coast had proven to be a pop­u­lar con­fer­ence des­ti­na­tion and a per­fect lo­ca­tion for learn­ing and net­work­ing.

Last year it at­tracted 3800 real es­tate pro­fes­sion­als from Aus­tralia and New Zealand.
