CHRISTMAS IS COMING EARLY THIS YEAR, Orlando's RE Bar Camp & FloridaRealtors® 2011 Convention is just around the corner.
Every year I make it a point to attend this jam-packed session. It's a golden opportunity to do some great networking, offers a spectacular learning experience, and you can't help but come home with invaluable tips relating to Real Estate, trends, short sale information, latest tools, technology, and what to do with all those apps for iphones, droids, and ipads.
On August 24, RE Bar Camp jump starts the convention offering a one-day collaborative meeting for anyone to attend. They call it an "unconference format", and the audience are the speakers. You all have the ability to learn what you want and offer your own experiences. It's ironic, we use the latest and greatest technology tools, yet revert back to the old whiteboard concept. If you haven't been to a bar camp before, you walk up to this huge whiteboard filled with breakout sessions on topics ranging from Short Sales, social media tools, what's up with the latest apps and how to use them on your iphone, droid or ipad. I heard that the first day of advertising for this event, over 90 people registerd and the date for this event is 3 months out.
To quote Chris Brown and Debbie Kirkland, co-hosts for this event, "Come to Share, to Learn, to talk about what makes us better real estate agents, brokers and business people, to connect with like minded social media marketers, because there is something for everyone here, beginner to pro!" Chris Brown is - shall we say? - passionate about the "unconference" experience. Here's his take. To Register for this spectacular event visit REBarCampOrlando.com. You can also visit our co-hosts sites Debbie Kirkland and Chris Brown.

As Patricia Fitzgerald, 2011 President of FloridaRealtors@ says, "We'll Make You A Star!!!".
