It was an honour to be part of the inaugural REIQ Property Manager Job Ready Program. The program was very insightful and interactive. Presentations were interesting, good slides and real-life anecdotes kept us all engaged. A real eye-opener for us all! I found the workshop refreshing and motivating – there were many elements of my work that can be improved upon to make work life that little bit easier. Laura, Selinda and Connie were all very knowledgeable and engaging trainers and covered a range of topics which appealed to everyone and are vital in the industry. I think everyone is going to take away some good action plans and I think it would be a good idea to refresh on this in a year or 2 time. Thank you also to Jeff for organising an amazing event.
