A few months ago the Canadian Real Estate Association’s (CREA) board invited me to speak to their board about open/platform strategies and the future of the real estate industry. Last week I was invited back to give a similar talk at their annual general meeting in Ottawa.
I had a great time at both conferences and was impressed with how both the leadership and membership were trying to come to grips with the rapidly changing environment of their industry. I’m also impressed and grateful that they invited me – someone whose perspective they knew would challenge them – and that they engaged my ideas so openly.
A number of CREA members have asked if I would share my slide deck, so I’ve done so below.
Also posted below is the graphic facilitation created by the very talented Avril Orloff who drew these while I was giving my talk!
And here are the slides!
