The third annual Leadership Summit held March 28 proved to be another dynamic event for everyone in attendance.
The Summit opened with a keynote by Kevin Harrington, a successful entrepreneur and one of the original Sharks from the ABC hit Shark Tank. He shared effective ideas for building a brand and business, helping the real estate members in the audience look at their careers and business plans in a new way.
Stephanie Tan, acquisitions associate, Invesco Real Estate and Leadership Summit Chair, shared that, “Everything is being disrupted. It is no longer as simple as discussing the impact of the internet on retail or the influence of technology on the future of office; we are now faced with artificial intelligence, robotics and more. These disruptions are everywhere and as leaders we need to be prepared to plan for and manage a future that is fueled by technological advancement and change.”
To that end, the event included a panel of industry leaders immersed in new technologies. The panel included: Eric Roseman, Lincoln Property Company; Brian Copley, City Bldr; Bobby Goodman, Truss; Parke Miller, Lincoln Property Company; and Richard Sarkis, Reonomy.
The panel was followed by a presentation by YPG Alumni Naomi Rizkowsky who demonstrated her recent tech start-up Nomes. This CRE business tool and mobile platform application allows leasing professionals to quickly analyze deal terms, run multiple leasing scenarios for comparison, and export those analytics to email for seamless communication and smoother transaction management with clients.
The Summit also featured a presentation by EQ Office President and CEO Lisa Picard. As CEO, Picard leads culture, vision and strategy for the company and drives the strategic direction for the organization. She provided a profound and honest conversation about her career path and what she sees for the future of the industry.
“This was not your average real estate conference. We’re bringing a dynamic and thought-provoking look at what is impacting our lives at a professional and personal level, and this Summit helps make us all better at what we do every day,” added Tan.
