Did you miss the AREF event with Todd Hirsch? Opportunity to view the presentation.

The Alberta Real Estate Foundation featured Todd Hirsch, Senior Economist at ATB Financial and co-author of The Boiling Frog Dilemma, as part of their Thought Leader Series. Over two hundred Real Estate professionals and representatives attended this event in Calgary and Edmonton. So far, the feedback from attendees has been excellent – mostly due to the unique nature of information presented.

At the crux of his presentation Hirsch argues that Canada’s economy has done reasonably well, yet things are not all they seem. Like a frog in a pot of warm water, Canadians have not yet realized the changes an increasingly global economy can bring. That takes creative thinking. Hirsch says, “In Real Estate, it’s all about asking yourself, “How can I become more creative in what I’m doing, how can I offer more innovative services to my clients?” He encouraged REALTORS® to break free of old frameworks and present themselves in a different way from what others are doing through invention and reinvention.

Here’s what attendees had to say about the presentation:

“Always good to get economic news from a practicing economist. Good speaker
and very knowledgeable on the local, provincial, Canadian and global markets.
Easy to listen to as well. Good job!” “Todd was very convincing in outlining the inter connectivity between Canada and
the world and how vulnerable we are in spite of all our resources: I liked his idea
that we have to move beyond “value added” , instead create and innovate and
sell that to the world.” “Appreciated the overall global outlook in relationship to Alberta’s economy.
Great presentation! Thanks!”
