PM Reach

A conference for the property management industry

RACV Goldfields Resort, Creswick VIC | 18-19 March 2021

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 PM life.

2019 Highlight Video

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.
