Many of you are likely familiar with RETSO. After 5 very successful years as a premiere real estate technology conference, RETSO is doing something very different this year. If you are dedicated to excellence, getting things done, and continually improving your real estate business, you don't want to miss RETSO Refocus.
Sure, I could give you an entire litany of reasons that you'd want to attend RETSO Refocus, but I'd rather concentrate on 3 reasons that I think are critical to understanding RETSO Refocus, and why it might be right for you. . .
Reason #1: RETSO Refocus isn't your average real estate conference
Let's be honest, most real estate conferences are basically the same. Sure, they may vary slightly in content, format and speakers, but for all intents and purposes, they all follow the same script. RETSO Refocus was created with the idea that real estate conferences are broken, and need to be transformed into something that is more meaningful for attendees. We've laid out exactly what that means for you.
RETSO is going to be far more interactive, and far more intensive than what you may have experienced at other real estate conferences. This has been done intentionally, so that you'll get the maximum value out of your experience, you'll walk away with actionable tasks, and you will have interacted thoroughly with your fellow industry professionals.
Reason #2: The speakers aren't presenters, they're facilitators
One of the hallmarks of the standard real estate conference is the presentation. Basically, that means you have someone very smart or an expert in their field stand up on stage and tell you all about a given subject. Maybe they're super engaging, maybe not. Maybe you learn something, maybe not. This will not happen at RETSO.
Sure, we have speakers. In fact, we have some really, really, awesome speakers. But, everyone who was invited to be a speaker at RETSO was specifically told that their role is not as presenter, but as facilitator.
Yes, they will be presenting content to you; but, they will only be doing so as a means of facilitating your progress, interaction, and learning. The content is merely a launching point for your experience. The bulk of your time won't be spent listening, but interacting with fellow professionals, sharing experiences, sharing expertise, working through challenges, and geting things done together.
Reason #3: RETSO Refocus will give you the platform on which to build a successful business
The main reason behind the redesign of RETSO is that we felt that real estate industry professionals need to refocus on their businesses, on what really works and makes things happen, and eliminate the distraction of shiny objects.
The Business Model Canvas is the centerpiece of RETSO Refocus. Many of you may not be aware of the Business Model Canvas, and that's ok. We've got some information to introduce you, and we're going to get you thoroughly introduced during RETSO Refocus.
The reason why we want to use the Business Model Canvas as the centerpiece of RETSO Refocus, is because we believe that the BMC provided a common platform that is critical for professionals who want to launch and maintain successful businesses.
After you leave RETSO Refocus, you will be so well-versed in the BMC and how to apply it to your business, you'll be able to easily recognize the best opportunities for your business. You'll know what you should focus on, and what is just a distraction. You'll be able to evaluate every vendor who approaches you, and you'll be able to identify the potential key partners that can take your business to a whole new level.
The BMC has been used by successful billion-dollar corporations around the world, by non-profits, by start ups, you name it. When businesses want to give themselves the best chance for success, they turn to the BMC, and we believe that dedicated real estate professionals should do the same thing.
If you want to get things done, RETSO Refocus is for you
