Have you noticed how small our world has become? It seems that Mickey Mouse knew this all along, but with social media and mobility, it has changed dramatically. With our sights set on Orlando and the CREW Network Convention and Marketplace in a little over six weeks, it’s impossible not to think about our connectivity in a world that grows smaller each day. But even with our connections, nothing can replace meeting your fellow industry leaders face-to-face.
The CREW Network convention gives you the opportunity to take your connections and make them even more personal. Take your growing digital presence and bring it to life in Orlando. Our convention enables you create the experience you want, connect with amazing business partners to discuss potential deals and map a learning experience that meets your needs.
Even knowing all that, it’s tough, isn’t it, to find or make the time to invest in yourself? Making time to ensure that you are known in the amazing Network that is CREW will prove valuable beyond your expectations. Yes, you will always have a desk full of work to accomplish. Yes, you will likely need to work while you are away. But wouldn’t you rather give yourself this opportunity to connect with other leaders in commercial real estate, find potential new business partners and be inspired by thought leaders?
I guess a better question might be, why wouldn’t you? Invest in yourself. It’s an investment in your business and your career. You will go back to work energized and connected in new and different ways.
Now don’t be surprised—we will be in the backyard of the Magic Kingdom. And CREW Orlando has cooked up some magic of their own with unique, exclusive tours and warm hospitality. Thanks to the many CREW Orlando volunteers who have contributed their time, talent and resources to our convention.
So, yes, it is a small world after all, but our convention’s dynamic program and personal connectedness will make you feel the magic of our powerful Network.
Register now and I will see you in Orlando!
