Join CREW Greenville and Katie Harrison from KVH Consulting for a professional development workshop you won't want to miss!

Part 1: Don't Sweat the Small Talk

If you have attended a Crew Chat this year, then you know Katie Harrison's ability to command a room and energize people. Join us for the much-anticipated Professional Development breakfast, where Katie Harrison of KVH Consulting will host an interactive session for Crew members and guests. Have you ever found yourself dreading the networking portion of an event? You are not alone! In this entertaining session that is certain to make you laugh out loud, Katie will coach attendees on how to overcome the stress of "small talk" through creative tactics and storytelling. No matter what job or sector of the real estate industry you're in, this session will apply to you!

GCC Continental Breakfast will be included in both the Part 1 ticket as well as a full session ticket.

Part 2: The Popsicle Experience

In Los Angeles, there's a building that from the exterior, looks like a yellow, outdated apartment complex. However, it's a hotel, and quite a popular one at that! With over 3,000 5-star reviews on Trip Advisor, the Magic Castle Hotel has successfully set itself apart in a world full of reputable hotel chains and unique Airbnbs. In this one-hour special workshop following the Professional Development breakfast, Katie will take a deep dive into the story of the Magic Castle Hotel and what we can learn from them. Guests will walk away being able to articulate their own unique differentiators from their competition. The program will end with networking and lunch.

GCC Chef Salad will be included in both the Part 2 ticket as well as a full session ticket.
