The SAWE has been holding virtual forums using Zoom since the Tech Fair on various mass properties topics. We are now in the initial phases of creating the third on the series. The topic will be Persuading Leaders and Peers of the Value of Mass Properties, which will be presented on Friday, January 15th. Nominally, we are looking for the Forum to run for an hour and a half starting at 9:00 AM MST (11:00 AM EST).
This forum will be somewhat different than previous forums in the following way – rather than a Forum leader and a host for the meeting, there will be a forum host and a panel of mass properties experts, who have now moved on to other positions in their organizations. We have identified people who have moved up to group lead and then to higher management levels, people who have risen to lead mass properties groups, people who oversee mass properties, and people who have experienced both well run and poorly run mass properties organizations. Each have a tale to tell.
What we envision is supplying a short PowerPoint template for each panelist to use to expound on their “secret sauce” on how to enable a well functioning mass properties effort, and more importantly, what the overall value of having such an organization (which could even be a single person) is to their group, company, and nation. Each panelist will have a short period of time (approximately 3-4 minutes) to present their case. After all the panelists have spoken, we will open up the floor for our audience to comment, ask questions, and discuss what they have just witnessed. Then there we will conduct a short wrap-up with the opportunity for discussions to continue off-line.
Be on the look out for more information as the details are finalized, but now is the time to get this on your calendar to make sure you are part of this great virtual forum!
