har_engage_1This year’s annual one-day conference, HAR Engage, (formerly known as The BIG e) was a little different than in years past and not just because of the name change.

Event Chair Roxane Witte of John Daugherty REALTORS® set out to deliver a more inclusive and engaging event for HAR members, and she accomplished that by having a sold-out event on October 13 at the Norris Conference Center. New this year all attendees were “VIP” registrants and participated in the seated luncheon in the Red Oak Ballroom. More than 450 HAR members listened to Alex Brennan-Martin of Brennan’s Houston fame explain how to deliver an exceptional customer experience during the noon time session.

Seventeen sessions took place at HAR Engage this year and were divided by topic:
1. growth and development,
2. social media & technology and
3. apps and technology.

Presenters included The Rook and Amber Esparza, Crystal Washington, Bob Hale, Jeff Turner, Katie Maxwell and many more. The event also included a member lounge with comfy seating, coffee and charging stations and interactive sponsor stations for members to learn about the latest products and programs designed to enhance their careers.

The date for HAR Engage 2017 will be Thursday, October 19, so save the date and register early to avoid being left out! Registration will open June 1, 2017.
