WHY WOMEN MUST LEAD
Young females present a significant opportunity for lenders in the marketplace, yet many providers miss the mark in reaching them. Millennials currently account for one in three home purchases, and one in five purchases are made by single women. This segment requires a specific understanding of marketing and customer service preferences in order to capture their business. In this session, participants will learn:
Buying behavior and preferences among young women
Marketing tips and strategies
Best practices in recruiting and retaining young, female talent
Lessons Of Leadership
STOP TALKING, TAKE ACTION!
Take Your Business To New Heights
JENNIFER DU PLESSIS
CEO, Kinetic Spark Consulting
VP, Apex Home Loans
I’ve come to believe that our lives are marked by three stages. First we learn, then we earn, and then we return. For the first 20 or so years we learn — we mold ourselves into who we will become. Then we take that knowledge and who we are out into the real world, and we earn and produce for 20, 30, 40, or more years. We climb the proverbial ladder of success. At some point during the mature stage of that earning period, we realize it’s time to return, time for us to pass on our experience to others so they can grow and improve on what we’ve accomplished
I want to shock you into action. If you’re not moving forward in this business, you’re moving backward, because things change so much and so constantly. You can’t stand still. So take the ideas you’ll find in this session, act on them right away, and work on them consistently day after day. You’ll see a huge difference in your practice and your life.
2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
WHAT'S THE SCORE:
CREDIT REPORTING TURNS A CORNER
CRE Credit Services
We’ll take a look at a number of factors affecting consumer credit, and how to address those to help your clients get the loans they need.
This year is turning into a new era for credit reporting and scores. The largest credit agencies are changing their criteria for what affects borrowers’ scores. Do you understand the changes that are coming, and how they’ll affect your clients’ chances of getting approved?
Join Simon Webster, president of CRE Credit Services, for this fast-paced and information-packed session that will explain the new changes, and will also go much further in guiding you to better serve your clients’ credit needs. We’ll cover what Trended Data is doing to loan approvals, the risk factor surrounding shopping and credit inquiries, how “original delinquency date” is the most important part of credit reporting and more.

SHAME & SURVIVAL
Columnist, Social Media Advocate
Special Gen XX Celebration
Join us as we celebrate the rising women stars of the mortgage profession at this special networking reception open to all attendees, and held in conjunction with the Originator Connect conference. We'll have an opportunity for everyone to gather and get ready for a weekend like no other, while taking time to recognize the mortgage profession's leading young women. But first, in an exclusive appearance, we'll hear a special presentation from a unique voice for social media justice, Monica Lewinsky.
Said Vanity Fair magazine: "She tried public appearances. She tried being reclusive. She tried leaving the country, and she tried finding a job. But the epic humiliation of 1998, when her affair with President Bill Clinton became an all-consuming story, has followed Monica Lewinsky every day. After 10 years of self-imposed reticence, and now hoping to help victims of Internet shaming, she critiques the culture that put a 24-year-old through the wringer and calls out the feminists who joined the chorus." An emerging activist against online bullying and harassment, she has a masters degree in social psychology from the London School of Economics, and has become a national magazine columnist, contemplating issues of women's empowerment and control of their own destinies. Read her compelling story here, and then join us to meet her in person.
As so many of us turn to social media in our professional lives as well as our personal ones, Monica Lewinsky's experiences and message will have special resonance for building a better tomorrow.
