CoreNet Global Carolinas – a professional association dedicated to the advancement of the corporate real estate industry – will be hosting its annual Mega Event on Wednesday, Sept. 13. It will take place from 1:30-7:00PM at The Ritz-Carton, Charlotte, located at 201 E. Trade Street. This year’s theme is “Think Big.”
Paul DePodesta, Cleveland Browns Chief Strategy Officer and subject of “Moneyball,” will serve as the keynote speaker. DePodesta transformed the Oakland A's and the business of Major League Baseball with the "Moneyball" methodology, which has revolutionized every industry – from Wall Street and Fortune 500 companies to government and healthcare. Attendees will learn how organizations can use "big data" to create strategy and sharpen its competitive edge, as well as how innovative techniques can optimize a company’s operations.
“Our Mega Event is a great opportunity to bring corporate real estate representatives throughout the Carolinas together for an afternoon of dynamic programming, networking and to ‘think big’," said John Leddy, CoreNet Global Carolinas Board President. “Through our commitment to providing educational and networking opportunities throughout the year, the Mega Event enables us to do so on a much larger scale.”
In addition to the keynote address, attendees will also have the opportunity to attend two interactive break-out sessions with leading real estate leaders from across the region and beyond. A list of the most up-to-date list of speakers can be found at http://bit.ly/2017MegaEvent.
