Conference 2014

Firstly, we were delighted to host Mauro Keller Sarmiento, Managing Director International Business at NAI Global, during the New Zealand Conference. Mauro experienced first hand the country, our business and culture during his trip. He also spent time with 3 of our NAI Harcourts business owners from Australia, Candice Gillies, Warrick Hobart and Tim Packman, who attended the New Zealand conference to meet and connect with other NAI Harcourts offices and teams. The trip commenced with a tour to the NAI Harcourts Hamilton office, where they met the whole team and spent time with the business owners Theo Do Leeuw, Mike Neale and Karl Van Gisbergen. They heard first hand and experienced how this business is indeed one of the best in Australasia. This was followed by a trip back to Auckland to meet the business owners Rob Meister and Andrew Bruce of another top office at NAI Harcourts and part of the Cooper and Co Stable Call NAI Harcourts North Shore Commercial.
 
The NAI Harcourts team also participated in separate breakout sessions run by General Manager, Michael Grainger with Mauro Keller Sarmiento, who spoke about the NAI Global network and CIII, the parent company. This was followed with an update from myself sharing our vision of being the number 3 brand in the Australasian commercial market place within 5 years. Next we hosted a panel presentation with our top achievers focusing on controlled marketing campaigns. The first session looked at "Winning the Business", followed by a session on "Running Successful Campaigns". The session leaders shared what is working in their marketplaces and members were able to ask questions.
