Nelson Bay to Newcastle to Ballina = 300+ PEXA Members, 2 Cohort Events, 2 Roadshows & 1 Tiny Plane
The PEXA roadshow rolled on through northern NSW last week. We started our week on Monday evening with a Cohort dinner in the very picturesque Nelson Bay where 15 lovely ladies joined us to share a meal and to also share their PEXA experiences with one another.
It was great to hear that some firms are processing 80% of their files through PEXA, the number one take away from this evening was that our regional members have no doubt realised the benefits of settling online and they just want everyone else to get on board.
Tuesday morning we kicked off Your Network Your Future roadshow in Newcastle where almost 200 PEXA members were in attendance to hear from David McDowell and Mark Smith about how the NSW ORG and SRO are driving their respective digital transformation agendas. Based on members feedback regarding their interest in Cyber Security we included two guest speakers to ensure our members know how to protect themselves and their clients in this digital era. Our very own @SBray Simon Bray shared what to expect from the platform in 2018 and it is fair to say our members interest peaked when hearing about PEXA Plus.
We concluded our event with an interactive panel with representatives from across the network including our own members, Christine Thompson from Greater Bank and Dan Lynch from First State Conveyancing who shared their own PEXA stories. A great turn out and a great vibe from our Newcastle PEXA members who by the way are some of our highest transactors in the country! Great job @SallyKite, @RENELLEHIGGINS, @TheresaTing and @ceather for getting Newcastle up and running.

Next we boarded a very, very small plane to Ballina. Whilst I had been warned about Pelican Air I don’t think I was prepared for the confined space on board or the fact that anyone could walk into the cockpit at any stage, but not to fear we all made it without incident. Thursday morning we held our next roadshow event at the Ballina Jockey Club which overlooked the local racecourse, almost 100 PEXA members were in attendance an amazing turnout for a small regional area. We had a similar line up of speakers to Newcastle however this time @GeorgePolus represented PEXA and Barry Goodwin from Lead Point and Amanda Edmonds from Edmonds Conveyancing joined us on the panel. The Ballina members were so impressive with the practical questions they were asking, it was obvious we had an audience of super users on our hands. Your members did you proud @SallyKite, @Morvanna, @TheresaTing and @Therese.
Thursday evening some of our Ballina members joined us on the banks of the river so we could thank them for all their PEXA support. We shared a beverage, watched the sunset and listened to our members stories and feedback on using PEXA and our support services.

It truly was a great week and a great opportunity to chat to so many of our members. A big thank you to all our members who turned out last week, it was great to see how many of you are genuinely interested in your network and your future. Thank you for your PEXA support!
