Roz Morris

Working from home is here to stay and meetings online are now part of our everyday way of doing business. Whether we are talking at home or in the office, it’s becoming very clear that there will be fewer face to face meetings and conferences in future.

Expert media trainer Roz Morris will explain the seven steps to success online. Roz is a former BBC and ITV reporter and presenter, who has been a media trainer for more than 20 years. She says: “We are all broadcasters now, but we don’t have the skills of broadcasters, and it’s very easy to get things wrong when you’re at home and you have to be your own producer and director.”

Whether it’s a meeting or an interview, areyou sure you’re looking professional?  Are you looking in the right place?What’s the background behind you? Do you look smart or scruffy?  

You don’t want to look and soundunprofessional, and run the risk of losing business, but, so many people arecurrently making mistakes on screen because of lack of basic information onwhat is now required for business life online.  This workshop will giveyou expert advice and tips on how to have a professional image on screenwhether in meetings or interviews.

Despite considerable progress in recent years, the real estate industry still suffers from an image problem when it comes to diversity. In order to remain relevant in the world of business and competitive in the war for talent, the industry must improve inclusivity by reducing barriers to entry and progression.

Team GB
SIOR student

Alice is 25 years old and reading a master’s in real estate Investment and Finance. She studied her undergraduate degree at University of Southampton in Politics and Economics and graduated in 2017, but then decided to go full-time sailing instead! Alice is currently campaigning to go to the 2024 Paris Olympics in the 49er FX with her teammate Bella Fellows. They both study alongside their campaign but plan to be full time from May 2021 onwards to give them the best opportunity. 

Studying and sailing has taught Alice many valuable skills and keeps her motivated to excel in both areas. Alice enjoys keeping active and working towards a goal and if she is not to be find out on the water, her competitive side really comes out on the road bike or playing netball. To fund her campaign, Alice also coaches the younger generation and recently has been appointed 29er Class Head Coach which means overseeing all the coaches and training and help organise quality weekends for the kids.  

Alice’s interest in real estate stems from work experience back in 2013 where she enjoyed the customer relations, valuation and investment side of the job and being able to get out and about and watch a project develop. Alice understands there are less woman in the field which is also reflected in her sport where there is a ratio of 3:1 men to women and only now are women starting to get the recognition they deserve. Alice believes the problems are rooted in the junior pathway which make it hard to break a habit when it comes to senior level racing.

Technology is transforming the world that we live in and over recent years has crept up the real estate sectors agenda?
However, it is a huge subject and there are lots of confusing views and messages. During this session, we will bring together a leading panel to explore how technology is changing the sector today and how it might continue to do so in the future.

We will specifically focus on how we as humans can better engage with technology. Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality are both examples of technologies helping us to do this.  Yet, why bother?  Is it worth the investment and how can it actually be put to use?  These are just some of the questions that we will be looking to address during the discussion.
