Speaking about the announcement, Peter Knight, founder of Property Academy and organiser of EA Masters, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have two incredibly talented and well-known household names hosting this year’s conference and we can’t wait to welcome everybody to another fantastic and inspiring event.”
Over the last two decades, agents have navigated the highs and lows brought on by a financial crash, Brexit, the global pandemic and a cost-of-living crisis, but Peter says the rollercoasting property market has now entered yet another phase, which will be explored at the upcoming event.
“The current period isn’t one of boom or bust, it’s not as straightforward,” he said. “It’s characterised by the military term ‘VUCA’ – Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity and agents need a plan to navigate these choppy waters and that is what they will get at this year’s EA Masters.”
The conference at EA Masters has a reputation for providing information, insight, ideas and inspiration and this year’s programme is set to be the best yet. Created with some of the very best estate agency business owners in the country, the EA MasterPlan is a seven-part, proven guide to profitable growth in all aspects of agency: lettings, property management, sales, land & new homes, and financial services.
This year’s programme is more immersive than ever before and will offer information and ideas to help you remodel your business, automate systems and processes, improve your communication, become more effective and achieve record profits.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from Mike Clare and Richard Harpin, two of Britain’s most successful business leaders, who will share their incredible stories of growing companies from nothing to valuations of £222million and £4billion.
They will also have access to the Innovation Hall, where over 50 leading suppliers will showcase their latest innovations and product developments.
To top it off, all attendees will receive a copy of ‘Thriving in Uncertainty’ – the latest publication from Property Academy, which is based on interviews with 20 agency business owners and what they’re implementing right now in their businesses.
Peter added: “The EA Masters is without doubt the estate agency event of the year, and it’s where the very best agency owners will be gathered on November 7 at Evolution London.
“If you’re looking to find ways to thrive in uncertainty, then EA Masters is where you need to be.”
