Competent to Courageous

With electricity pricing increasing and the environment being more on the homeowners’ mind, this session will introduce you to a carbon neutral model used by sharing a case study on a new apartment complex in Fremantle.

Glenn Fairey

Service Delivery companies are entering a very new age of communications, transparency and efficiency.  Accessing information, facilitated by technology, has never been easier.

11:40am - 11:50am

Generating Income for your Strata Asset

Damien Moran

Innovation can drive both energy savings and profitability with the right energy purchasing structure combined with renewable technology.

Shaping a Better Strata World

Maree Breen

Strata is big business. In a typical 100 lot modern scheme around 50% of the Administrative Fund and 100% of the Reserve Fund levies are spent on the maintenance, repair, renewal or replacement of strata company buildings, plant, and equipment. This session will share how with strategic asset and money management, strata companies can turn levies from a cost to an investment.

Moving from uncertainty to confidence when appointing unregulated trades
