Orlando, FL (July 25, 2014) – Close to 500 relocation industry specialists, real estate professionals and service providers from around the world attended the 2014 Brookfield Forum, an event hosted by Brookfield Global Relocation Services (Brookfield GRS) held at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida. This year’s program, themed Performance Thru Execution, brought together professionals from the relocation industry value chain to promote networking, collaboration and discuss solutions for improving the mobility service delivery process.
“Our service providers are considered an extension of Brookfield GRS and are paramount to the overall success of our company,” said Traci Morris, CEO, Brookfield GRS. “The Brookfield Forum is an opportunity to share our best-in-class practices with our entire supply chain network as well as discuss the fast changing needs of the marketplace – assuring that we continue to provide the highest quality products and services to our clients.”
The keynote speaker, Stephen M. R. Covey, cofounder of CoveyLink and the FranklinCovey Global Speed of Trust Practice, kicked off the event with an engaging message on the economics of trust and the cores of credibility – the foundations of execution. Following his energetic opening, Mr. Covey conducted a break-out session in which he provided a tactical approach to bring these concepts back to individual company environments in order to drive execution forward.
The afternoon leadership sessions led by senior leaders within Brookfield GRS covered topics such as Government, Metrics, Premier Service, Information Security and Business Intelligence.
