Keynote Address:
A New Path for the People

Closing Session:

"Of the People, By the People, For the People"

Via WebEx - An insightful examination of people's "shelter" preferences both here and abroad. Because none of us can do business without understanding people--the ones who serve and the ones who are served--Alex will reflect on such issues as housing style and cost variability, the current popularity of housing-related media, people's destination preferences and attitudes toward mobility, and valuable insight as to how service providers can remain relevant. There is no topic timelier in relocation practice than this one.

Closing Speaker: Alexander E. Perriello, III , President and CEO - Realogy Franchise Group

Session A:
Creative Thinking: Anyone Can Do It!

You may believe that you aren't a creative thinker. So what do you do when your job requires you to come up with a new idea? On the other hand, you may consider yourself to be creative. But, do you have a process to implement your ideas? We're all challenged every day to solve problems, develop new products or services, find operational efficiencies, or improve quality and productivity. This session will give you a step-by-step process and tools that you can use to develop new ideas and solutions, vet their viability, and design plans for their implementation. You'll learn what factors are essential, and leave with the understanding that anyone can be creative once you understand the process.
