When we heard about Gen Blue Hollywood, our office was quick to register. We always support conferences, and after we attended Gen Blue New York, we know this one was going to be terrific. Now that we know more about what’s to come, we can’t contain our excitement!
First off, we know we are going to get together with our Coldwell Banker family from around the world. These conferences have really allowed us to shrink the globe, and there are people from all over the planet that we have been visiting with year after year at these events.
Next, the opening session is going to be outstanding. We are going to be celebrating at the Dolby Theater, home of the Academy Awards. Head office listened when we gave feedback that we wanted more networking opportunities, and after the show there will be a Hollywood Glam cocktail party to do just that!
The education component is a huge piece of why I come to Gen Blue. As the trainer in the office, it is so important to keep on top of new technology and ways to better our business. I have seen what’s coming with the new Coldwell Banker website and digital marketing changes, and I don’t know if I’m more excited to see Sean Blankenship demo that, or to hear Jane Lynch’s zippy one liners on stage at the Dolby! Coldwell Banker always brings the stars in the training world out, and this year is no exception, with Tom Ferry, Matt Ferrara and Zan Monroe topping the card of world class trainers. I know agents are often worried about spending the cash to fly away to conference. I used to worry about the business I would miss, until the years showed me that Gen Blue increases my business. It’s like a little career boost, with the energy, networking, learning and referrals ALWAYS bringing back much more than the time and financial investment over the three days at conference.
Lastly, this closing party is going to be epic! DJ Mary Mac was outstanding at Gen Blue NY. She kept the dance floor going all night with every hit and genre of music you could imagine. This year, they will be closing Universal Studios for us and hosting a party complete with DJ, food, cocktails and of course, RIDES!
Now, most of you know, I can’t blog without adding a video. Sometimes my career excites me a lot, and I was pumped when all of our Gen Blue attendees embraced the idea of making a Hollywood Style Gen Blue video! If you haven’t gotten your ticket yet, now is the time! You will definitely not regret it. See you in Hollywood. If you are a Gen Blue Canadian, please stay tuned for our video that will be released in the next few days announcing a little Canadian Networking event we’re hosting at our Hotel. Drumroll please……
