If you want to accelerate the growth of your property portal or classifieds business and minimize waste, take the opportunity to learn from the best. Don't miss Simon Baker's Best Practice Master Class to be held 31 May.
Baker, who is former REA Group CEO and a serial real estate portal investor is running his acclaimed full-day workshop once again at this year’s Property Portal Watch Conference in Bangkok, at the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel.
While Property Portal Watch conferences are run at least three times a year, Baker doesn’t always include the Master Class as part of proceedings, so this is a rare and unparalleled opportunity to gain from his insights and experience.
There’s a lot to get through in the lecture-style, full-day workshop . Baker will cover off on five clear steps of the process towards your success:
“I’ll also offer practical ‘how to’ steps any property portal or general classifieds site can implement tomorrow. Participation is expected. Ask questions and if you don’t agree, speak up.
“With a range of people attending Master Classes from just starting a business through to long term market leaders, we'll answer as many questions as we can.”
