Inman’s Hacker Connect, being held Monday, January 16, 2017 in New York City, promises to be a really interesting time. Instead of the usual presentation and panel formats attendees will split into smaller groups to talk about real estate industry technology issues. A facilitator will help define the problem and facilitate a discussion of solutions. Yes, each facilitator will have the knowledge and experience to bring ideas to the table as needed, but this meeting will be more about active discussion and participation. After the breakout session each facilitator will then report back to the attendees about what was determined during the session.
I’ll be facilitating the “Combating Cybercrime” topic, which should be big this year given all of the issues the brokerage community has had with wire fraud. But, that topic will be just one of six topics scheduled at that time in the afternoon. This should be an action-packed day!
