REd Talks

Registrations are now closed

The inaugural REd Talk Series is all about the future of the CRE industry, our future talent.


REd Talks are a highlight of the CoreNet Global Australia Annual Conference, giving our Young Leader members the opportunity to present in front of 300+ industry delegates on a topic they are passionate about. Designed as a 6-minute TED-style talk, it’s your chance to shape the future direction of the industry.


This year we’re giving even more Young Leaders the chance to be heard through a series of open mic events, called the REd Talk Series. These events will be used to select the successful presenters for the 2021 conference on 8 September 2021 at the Hilton Sydney.


A combination of face-to-face and virtual events will be held in the lead up to the conference, starting with a virtual session on May 12 with professional public speaking coach, Margaret Heffernan. This session will focus on how to craft and deliver a standout presentation. See below for more information and registration details.
