The Women's Council of REALTORS sponsored a post-event mixer for EMERGE! attendees from 2:00-4:00pm. This was a great opportunity to network with other real estate professionals following the event. Drink tickets were provided for the first 100 who registered.
Everyone joined us October 12th for a good use of their time. Time management, when you just don't have enough! Kathey Batey took a humorous look into the mind of a busy woman to see what motivates her to be: Superwoman, Martyr, Manager, Problem Solver, Referee (and all before breakfast!). Are we living out our priorities or are we a “reflex” to our own lives? Live what matters!

Halfway through the mix & mingle, our president Ashley Dietch-Schaefer discussed what WCR is all about and the opportunities that go with being a member. One drink ticket and appetizers were provided for attendees.
For the September breakfast, we were honored to have Nobu Hata speak. Nobu works for NAR as the Director of Member Engagement. He talked about how the industry is evolving; what we need to focus on and what to not to get distracted by. For example, what does the increasing use of virtual reality mean for Realtors? Will Zillow be a threat to our profession? You found out if you were at the September breakfast!

For our June breakfast, we welcomed professor David Weinandy. You’ve spent days determining what it is you need to tell people. Now, let’s spend some time making sure others want to listen to your message. During our time together, you will increase your public speaking effectiveness. We will cover such areas as: types of delivery, what to do with your voice and body, introductions and conclusions, reducing anxiety, credibility, and visual aids. Our goal is to make you a more motivated and motivating speaker. Public speaking can be fun!
