Purplebricks chief executive Michael Bruce is to speak alongside eMoov founder Russell Quirk in a debate to be held at the National Association of Estate Agents’ London Forum next month.
The ‘High Street v Online’ debate panel is completed by NAEA president Martyn Baum. The official announcement of the debate says, perhaps ironically, “questions from the floor will be encouraged.”
The Forum, to be held at London’s Lancaster Hotel on February 23, has other sessions including one led by Nigel Kirby, deputy director of economic crime command at the National Crime Agency - he will be speaking on money laundering and financial crime.
Peter Walker, commercial director of Security Dialog, will tell agents how to protect their business and customers from cybercrime.
Tony Anderson, former director of sales and marketing for easyJet , will lead a session on marketing and Adrian Webster - “a world leading motivational speaker” according to the advance publicity - will deliver key messages on how to keep workforces motivated.
Lucian Cook, a research director at Savills, will close the day by looking at future trends for the industry.
The event costs £99 for NAEA members and £125 for others.
