PM Reach

A conference for the property management industry

RACV Healesville | 27-28 October 2022

PM Reach is all about you. Your mindset, your wellness and your resilience. PM Reach is a retreat far away from work with content designed to empower and invigorate with speakers, stories and information relevant to your Property Management life.
People who say they love what they do have the right mindset. Be those people. With the right mindset, you are happy, more efficient and more productive at work and at home. If you’ve had the right mindset, it’s easy to get it back and if want to get the right mindset, PM Reach is for you.
“Wellness” more than ever means body and mind. And a healthy mind will often manifest a heathy body. Learn from the success of others in the industry and improve your mental wellness as they have done before you.
Property management work and resilience go hand-in-hand, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. In fact, it’s hard to be resilient all the time. The PM Reach speakers know all about resilience and rising above difficult times and situations and they want to share their stories with you.

The Speakers

They all have a story to tell. Stories about success, mistakes, good times and hard times. Stories to make you think about yourself. And stories to help you improve.

Dave Skow – MC

Hailing from the NSW Riverina Region, Dave Skow started his real estate career in 2001 and has held roles in sales and property management, franchise management and training for the Real Estate Institute NSW. After selling his PM business in 2021 after building it to almost 1,000 managements, Dave is now excited to continue to impart his knowledge of business growth and ownership to other property management practitioners around the country.

Tara Bradbury

The Fraser Coast is my stomping ground! I love the familiarity, lifelong friends and lifestyle that goes with it. My favourite happy place is anywhere with my husband, Shane, and our two daughters, Isabelle and Sienna. Apart from my family, property management, rent roll growth, mentoring and living the Hervey Bay lifestyle are my greatest passions. I started out in the local real estate scene in 2002 and established Active Agents in 2019.

You will find me direct and social with a (wickedly) weird sense of humour and a constant need to be busy. I love challenges that involve talking, learning and, well, people. I’m a people person you see, and helping others is at the core of my motivation. I aspire to share with others through leadership and build on the profession of our industry and clients while offering a workplace that our team loves coming to everyday.

I am a driver. I drive ideas, procedures, structure, change, actions, visions, goals, dreams .. well, anything I can really. I like to see things run smoothly and consider myself the master time-efficiency expert. I love the variety of my role here at Active Agents which includes new business, business and office management and property management. My passions within these fields are marketing, business and strategic acumen, and development.

Danielle Cargill

A property manager since 1997, Danni is well aware of the stresses that the job can put on us and the toll this takes on us mentally. Over the years, her primary way of managing a challenging role and her mental health has been by maintaining her physical health.

In 2018 Danni undertook Pilates teacher training, which she developed into a live, interactive online experience during the lockdowns and continued this to help people to switch off the mind chatter, counter the negativity of sitting in front of a computer and find new strength – all from the convenience of home. Join her at PM Reach for a 45 minute mat pilates class to discover muscles you didn’t know you had!
