We had a fantastic industry day at the Your Network, Your Future Roadshow in Perth last week. It was great to have such an engaging group of speakers to talk about not just the industry changes happening now, but also to give an idea of the technologies on the horizon and what the future of property might look like. Shout out to Sean Langton, Bankwest’s CTO who had everyone enthralled with a great presentation on future tech.
With the industry in WA fast approaching the date for transfers to go digital it was a great chance to get an update from Landgate and PEXA’s Executive Manager Practitioner Services, @AngellaC, about the upcoming changes and the support services available for practitioners in WA.
We ran plenary sessions where attendees had the opportunity to pick and choose what they wanted to know more about including hearing directly from our Chief Product Officer, @SBray on the enhancements planned for the PEXA platform and from a panel of members already using PEXA.
The highlight of the day was having a panel of senior leaders from the major banks and Bankwest up on stage, fielding questions from the room about the challenges they’re facing and their readiness for May 1. After answering the hard questions it was great to hear Jack Boyle from Challenge Settlements ask “Where can we improve to make life easier for you guys?” which really demonstrates the nature of collaboration this digital transformation has fostered. It’s not just practitioners helping practitioners learn PEXA or banks working with other banks to improve their processes it is an industry wide effort to adopt a better way of working together.
And lastly, congratulations to @ValerieDeCosta6101 for winning our International Women’s Day themed prize, two tickets and an all-expenses paid trip to see Hilary Clinton in Melbourne this May.
