I had the honor of speaking at the Banff Western Connection Conference last week in Banff, AB. It was a fantastic conference – really well put together. (You should think about attending the next one)
A few of our team members have asked what they could be reading to grow their professional knowledge.
To understand our influences for decision making; here is what we recommended they start with and have made them part of our library for their reading pleasure. I thought I would share the list here as well:
Good to Great
Let My People Go Surfing
Getting Things Done
Death by Meeting
The Four Hour Work Week
Tuesday’s with Morie
The One Minute Manager
The Ultimate Question
Robert’s Rules of Order
I have quite a few speaking engagements in the month of April and I figured I would share them with our Ubertor readers as it would be fantastic to see you out if you can make any of them.
Last week I had the opportunity to speak to the Association of Saskatchewan Realtors in Saskatoon on the topic of social media and it was a great success. Here is some feedback from Bill Madder, the EVP of the Association:
“Stephen Jagger’s presentation on Social Media to the Association of Saskatchewan REALTORS® Symposium this week was outstanding! Our members were engaged from start to finish and went home with some great ideas on how to integrate Twitter, Facebook, You Tube, etc. into their businesses. Stephen’s new book “Sociable!” was a hot seller and we began to see our members using his ideas right away. I would highly recommend Stephen as a speaker on this topic. I would also highly recommend the book to anyone who is thinking about using social media.”
