3:00–4:00 pm Forward Focus: Creating Customer Experiences in the Classroom with Greg Glosson, GSI | Buckhead I
Providing a memorable service experience involves more than showing up. Think about your most memorable service experience when an organization or person delivered exceptional service and how that experience made you feel. What did they do? How did you feel? Have you continued to be a customer? In the ever-changing real estate education environment, many times the experience is the difference between an agent attending a live course versus an online training. Regulators, Education Directors and Instructors can work together to create a memorable experience for students, while at the same time generating student excitement for future events by filling seats and increasing school or association profits. Attendees will leave this presentation with useful tools and techniques to provide memorable experiences to those they serve, work with and want to work with. Using a collaborative approach, all involved can create a win-win experience for the classroom student.

Over $20 billion invested in real estate technology in the last nine years in an effort to aggregate real estate leads and remove agents from the real estate transaction. The foundations of the real estate industry are shaking with the amount of private equity dollars being pumped in and high-tech start-ups are looking to disrupt the real estate industry. Our future as educators is fraught with giant risks as people look to remove "friction" from real estate transactions by removing agents all together! New brokerage models and the rise of "super agents" could lead to fewer students for us all. Come and find out the risks we face and some key opportunities for those that are aware.
