Murray recently spoke with RealTrends about this year’s Gathering of Eagles.
RealTrends: What sets Gathering of Eagles apart from other real-estate conferences?
Steve Murray: Our focus has always been to share useful information with our guests, unlike other companies. We don’t sell our products or services. Although it sounds simple, it is a real differentiator. We care about making our guests feel at home and that they have a great time.
RT: Is there a panelist or speaker you are most excited about this year’s conference?
SM: Mike Staver is a huge asset to our company. He inspires people like no one I know in the industry. He helps people see the big picture. Gary Keller is also special because of his unique perspective on the industry. There are also many great panels.
RT: What are your most eagerly awaiting at Gathering of Eagles 2023 in Washington, D.C.?
SM: I love being with leaders and friends. This is especially true when we all are going through the same difficult market conditions. Listening to the stories of other leaders, sharing ideas, and enjoying being together.
RT: Do You have a favorite memory of a GOE in the past?
SM: There are many great ones. Paul DePodesta, Moneyball’s famed actor, was one of my favorites. He was unknown to most of the audience, but he managed to charm 350 leaders without any notes or slides. It was powerful content. Another example was Jim Collins, Good to Great sharing the attributes of powerful leaders. I also have many great memories from back decks with my friends.
RT: What do you hope for the future of Gathering of Eagles
SM: I hope we can continue to focus on our guests’ needs by keeping speakers and panels relevant and packed with useful information. We will continue to create the one conference that makes people feel special. People will remember how special it was, both in terms of the programming and the networking.
