Loud cheers, grinning faces and highly charged speeches perfectly describe the IQI Global Conferences 2017 that took place on 25th July at Connexion@Nexus in Bangsar South. The conference aimed to educate property agents on the ways digital technology, social media and internet could help them reach their goals and expand their business and network.
Energy was high as 500 honourable guests from IQI offices from around the country, namely Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Johor and Melaka as well as their international offices, such as Vietnam and the Philippines filled up the grand ballroom. The cheers and chants grew louder as the emcee took the stage to greet the enthusiastic crowd. Guests were then entertained by a singing performance by IQI’s very own songbirds, who serenaded them with an original composition called, ‘Seasons of Love’. This was followed by a dance performance by some of IQIs talents, who at the end of their routine prompted the crowd to participate.
The day’s itinerary then kicked off with a talk by Haresh Khoobchandani, CEO of iProperty.com Malaysia and Singapore. His inspiring and empowering speech paints a picture of the importance of embracing the change that comes with digital technology and how it can be used as a leverage. “We live in the most exciting of times,” stated Haresh. “The opportunities ahead of us, for property agents and real estate are unprecedented. Technology is changing the world in ways that we must learn to embrace no matter how young, how old or how used we are of doing things in a certain way.”
Touching on the subject of digital potential, Haresh applauded IQI on their willingness in embracing change: “You are all part of a cutting edge organisation because this company is poised to do world domination in ways very few people can foresee. IQI as an organisation is leading the way in leveraging digital at the heart; which is why we are here to be your digital technology partner, because at the heart of REA, we too want to change the way world experiences property. And I am very privileged to be here today to share a little bit on digital revolution.”
Among other big names who presented at the conference were Andrew Chow, Social Media Strategist Ideas & Concepts with his presentation titled “Getting High in the Age of Disruption”; Brian Cassingena, Senior Copywriter for Mindvalley with ‘7 Figure Email Copywriting Secrets’ and ‘5-Step Checklist For Writing Sales-Getting Emails In Minutes’; and Jeevan Sahadevan, Business Growth Expert, Founder, and CEO of Leveragelab spoke about ‘5 Powerful Strategies to Create a Competitive Edge and MAXIMIZE your Success Online and Offline’.
There were also several awards presented to top achievers, rising stars, as well some up and coming negotiators who have worked hard in contributing to the industry. Among other activities were a fashion show and a launching ceremony of an IQI Apps. The event ended on a positive note, inspiring, motivating and educating their agents on the importance of digital technology.
