RISMEDIA, July 3, 2008-The Women’s Council of REALTORS® (WCR) converges on Boston, Massachusetts, July 11-13, for its first-ever Influential Women Summit, where some of the most influential women in the real estate industry will share their experiences and insights on what it takes to make it to the top.
The keynote speaker is Robyn Waters, former VP of Trend, Design & Product Development at Target. Robyn has more than 30 years of experience tracking and translating trends into sales and profit. In her presentation, “The Hummer and the Mini: Navigating the Contradictions of the New Trend Landscape,” she explores the contradictory nature of today’s consumer. Robyn challenges us to look at trend from the inside out by focusing on what’s important instead of just what’s next.
WCR’s “Most Influential Women in Real Estate Panel” will be moderated by Pat V. Combs, ABR, CRS, GRI, PMN, the Immediate Past National President of the National Association of REALTORS®, America’s largest professional association, representing more than 1.3 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
A Realtor since 1971, she is the vice president of Coldwell Banker-AJS-Schmidt, the second largest real estate company in Michigan. Combs will moderate our panel of influential women in real estate at 8:30 on Saturday morning, July 12, with Tami Bonnell, U.S. President of EXIT Realty; Pam O’Connor, President and CEO of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World; and Kaira Sturdivant Rouda, President of Real Living, as panelists.
Finally, WCR says that it is offering an opportunity to experience its signature “Harnessing the Power: Skills Based Performance Management” Designation course at the discounted price of $129. This course shows you how to eliminate the obstacles that conspire to prevent you from getting to that next level—in your business and in your life. It counts for full credit in WCR’s Performance Management Network Designation and also counts as an ABR Designation elective.
