The Appraisal Institute’s 2022 Annual Conference took place last week in Las Vegas! Below are some highlights from this year’s event.
Keynote Ryan Leak: Chasing Failure
Ryan Leak kicked off this year’s event as our keynote speaker and did not disappoint!
What has fear ultimately cost you, your team, your organization? In times of challenge and great uncertainty it’s easy to feel paralyzed by fear, but what if you could stand in the face of fear and know that these are the exact moments in life where you can rise to be your best self? These are the real and deeply human conversations that leadership expert Ryan Leak is addressing with global C-Suite audiences in Fortune 500s, All-Stars in the NBA and over 50,000 people that he reaches monthly through his keynotes.
Over the past decade, Ryan has become a sought-after speaker, coach and consultant with deep domain expertise in empowering leaders to reclaim a new self-awareness that enables them to connect with their people more effectively. Rooted in the idea of Chasing Failure, and not being afraid of stretching further, Ryan has been hired to work internally with specialized teams, add value for leaders and their customers, and create new initiatives for the business to better connect with the broader world. Ryan trains 15,000+ entrepreneurial leaders and speaks to over 200,000 people each year as a curator of relevant leadership content and transformational storytelling.
Seen as a deeply aware coach and connector who can seamlessly operate across the spectrum of a business, Ryan helps leaders better understand where their teams are capable of going by addressing the friction of where teams stand today. Using humorous wisdom and poignant narrative, he inspires audiences to recognize the value in chasing failure to become even more than they are – to become the best version of themselves.
2022 AI Awards Luncheon
15 accomplished professionals were recognized for their contributions to better our organization and profession. Congratulations to this year’s winners, and thank you to the AI Education and Relief Foundation for sponsoring the Awards Luncheon!
For anyone who’s ever taken Appraisal Institute educational offerings, you know that the offerings are rigorously researched, developed and reviewed by practicing appraisers using real-world experience in the residential and commercial space. Today I am joined by Alan Hummel, SRA, and one of our past presidents of the Appraisal Institute, to discuss the Desktop (Bifurcated, Hybrid) and Evaluation seminar. Alan was one of the reviewers for the seminar, and I am so excited that he’s here today. Before I turn it over to Alan, I’d like to give you a little overview of the seminar.
