From mortgage banking retreats to real estate company year-end celebrations to corporate relocation launches, GNE was by far the most comprehensive venue to meet global colleagues, learn high-level strategies and position ourselves for a productive step into the future. Quality is the keyword!”

Jamie Michaud - HEADSHOT Oct 2013 SMALL

“This was my first Global Networking Event. I did not expect the experience I had in Miami, in fact, I was blown away. It was like the conference took on a life of itself, and everyone present felt an unstated but powerful movement. I truly felt the slogan WE | ARE was brilliant. It is the type of representation that competitors strive to get in front of but fail. Much like a train gaining speed, it is unstoppable. Most importantly, it is the type of slogan that unites a team and brings everyone together towards one united goal: Success. I am extremely honored to be a member of the “Dream Team”, also known as Sotheby’s International Realty. It pushes me to perform at my highest potential daily.”
– Jamie Michaud 



“The GNE is even better the second time because it’s like a reunion with old and new faces. It was great to connect with colleagues and friends I’ve met from the previous GNE and then blend it with new relationships as well. I’m excited to implement the ideas I took away from several different agents regarding marketing, building business, and structuring a good referral network. As a speaker, it was a great opportunity to relay all I’ve learned and share methods that have worked for me with a group of people who share the same goals of providing our clients with top tier service.” – Cassie Daughtrey
