CBRE hosted its first-ever simulcast for members of its Women’s Network

Live Event Viewed by Thousands Of Members Worldwide

Los Angeles, 2017-Nov-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — CBRE hosted its first-ever simulcast for members of the CBRE Women’s Network, on November 9. The live-streaming presentation, called “A Conversation with Amy Cuddy,” was viewed by more than 3,000 CBRE women and men across the U.S., Canada, Latin America and Australia.

Amy Cuddy, the keynote speaker, is a Harvard Business School professor who studies how nonverbal behavior and snap judgments affect people in business settings. She spoke in person, exclusively to the Women’s Network at the main event in New York City, and her presentation was broadcast to more than 80 CBRE viewing locations worldwide.

The simulcast was the cornerstone of a half-day, professional development opportunity for all CBRE women. Along with the live presentation, each local event included a special program that focused on professional success, and offered members additional opportunities to gain vital knowledge, make professional connections and build business-related skills. Women at the event were also able to connect directly with attendees in locations around the world through social media and an exclusive event app.

“The Women’s Network strives to provide programming and valuable experiences for all CBRE women,” said Lisa Konieczka, the network’s chairperson and executive vice president in the company’s Chicago office. “This one event has sparked deeper conversations about our own ‘personal power,’ created connections across the company and provided thousands of Women’s Network members with content, ideas and opportunities that will move them closer to their professional goals.”

The CBRE Women’s Network was formed in 2000 and has more than 3,000 members from all levels of the organization, the company’s three regions and every business line. The group’s mission is to “Promote the Success of Women,” which is guided by three key principles: Growth, Connection and Mentorship.
