In October, Opteon brought together 140 of our key leaders and people for a two-day conference focused on strategies to bring the very best in property advisory services to our customers, now and into the future.
Over the two days, CEO Chris Knight spoke about his vision for the business, and Chief People Officer Di Nadebaum launched our new Vision and Values. Other sessions included a deep dive into Opteon’s digital future, an update on our international growth and a panel interview with some of our key customers facilitated by Chief Customer Officer Gabrielle Gauch.
The program also included sessions on the key elements of our growth strategy including Government (presented by Rob Tot, GM Government & CAMA), Distribution Strategy: Growing Market Share, Revenue and Profitability in the Australia and NZ Markets (presented by Scott Chapman, GM Distribution and Property) and a comprehensive analysis of our IT security framework presented by CFO James Harkness and IT Director Ben Kent.
GM – Operations Simon Spong talked about the importance of our single operating system which benefits customers at every step in the valuation process.
Using the in-house expertise of Lego Master Henry Pinto, our group broke into smaller teams to construct high-value Byron Bay properties using Lego. Our valuers demonstrated keen industry knowledge, creating some truly memorable structures, with local property market insights provided by Byron Bay Director Matthew Tall to help with the judging.
Another important element of the conference is celebrating our people and their incredible efforts over the last 12 months. From our award winners to our emerging leaders, Opteon is home to some of the best and brightest minds in the property industry in Australia and New Zealand. This annual event allows us to recognise our talent and build connections that support our service offering.
Throughout the conference, the focus of the event remained firmly on our customers. A customer-centric organisation, Opteon is always working to accelerate solutions that benefit all our customers, in every industry and market sector. As we continue to build on our success, we look forward to an exciting year ahead.
