Warren Tate - Master of Ceremonies

Warren has worked within the real estate industry for over 20 years.

However simply talking is not enough, saying what you believe people want to hear is definitely not the way to survive, it takes a deeper understanding of people, how they communicate and how they think, to effectively create lasting relationships.
A Certified Speaking Coach, Warren has spent countless hours of study and research into understanding the psychology, biology and behavioural science behind how humans think and communicate and that research and learning forms the foundation for his recent book. You will uncover that how we communicate is complicated and truly amazing, however when you understand the key elements to how we communicate and how your message can be delivered with clarity the majority of the time, your life and outcomes will be changed forever.

Lisa Pentland - General Manager Sales & Service @ PropertyMe

Lisa learnt the hard way that being a highly successful real estate salesperson does not automatically qualify you as a great leader and business manager. As her business rapidly grew, so did Lisa’s frustrations. Dissatisfied with being told what was and was not achievable in Property Management, Lisa developed a dogged determination to bust all the myths and low level practices widely considered as acceptable within our industry. And so...  Lisa commenced a major overhaul of her own property management business, piece by piece she completely disassembled it, developing an intricate understanding of each part and reassembling it until finally, it emerged as a highly efficient, stress free customer centric machine she could be proud of.

Lisa’s passion now, is to empower other business owners and their teams to challenge the status quo, to not compromise on their commitment to provide services they can be proud of, enjoy rewarding careers and ultimately build the business that will help them realise the lifestyle they dreamed of when they first decided to become the leaders of their own destiny. Lisa has identified the “3 P’s” of the Property Management business as “Purpose, Process and Profit” and has a series of strategies she successfully uses to work with business owners and their teams.
