Agents invited to TedTalk-style success summit

Industry figure Sean Newman has launched a new TedTalk-style event called the ‘Estate Agent Success Summit’.

Speakers will be given 30 minutes to share their best advice for estate agents. 

The lineup so far includes Simon Leadbetter, founder of Unchained.marketing, Simon Whale of Kerfuffle, who will be sharing his knowledge on marketing and AI in estate agency and Damon Bullimore, chief executive at BuildYourMarket and chief technical officer at the Nurture Group on how to use data to prepare your estate agency business for the future.


It will take place at The Manufacturing Technology Centre, Ansty Park in Coventry on Wednesday 18 October,

Newman said: “I used to love going to industry events, but I have found many are expensive, boring and all too similar. 

“They often have a drawn out three course dinner, a long awards ceremony, speeches, sales pitches, and guest speakers unrelated to the industry. Then the audience must sit through a 90-minute PowerPoint presentation to get one or two useful nuggets.

“My mission is to provide maximum value and great content to help estate agent attract more listings and sell or let more properties."

The theme of the event is “Marketing Masterclass.”

Newman added: “Estate agents must become experts in marketing - we have to promote our business to attract sellers, then we have to market properties to attract buyers and achieve the best price. Too many agents just rely on Rightmove to do both.

“By raising standards and improving knowledge, estate agents can command higher fees, create better businesses, and pay higher salaries to attract and retain top talent.”

More speakers will be announced next week. The event is open to all UK estate agents and letting agents. Tickets go on sale today and start at £150+VAT if booked before 5pm on Wednesday 4 October, using the discount code EARLYBIRD. 

£10 from each ticket purchased will go to Agents Giving.

    Sounds good, except Ted Talks are strictly the optimal 18 minutes long.
