Clarke shares investment tips
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.
