Current & Upcoming Events

We know it’s been a while since we were all able to meet in person, and we’re delighted to be back together again soon.

As we get closer to being together again, we are excited to invite you – a valued member of the RBC® Referral Awards® program – to join us for the following exclusive virtual events:

Virtual Event Date & Time Description  
Le stress : comment chasser le mammouth sans y laisser sa peau (Stress: How to hunt the mammoth and stay alive) with Dr. Marie-France Marin (French event) October 4th
1:00pm – 2:00pm EST
This conference aims to demystify the popular definition of stress and effects of stress on physical and mental health. We will review a detailed description of the acute and chronic effects of stress on physical health in order to better recognize the symptoms associated with stress and find ways to control the stress response
Hope-Forward: Steadying Our Steps After a Challenging Season with Dr. Robyne Hanley-Dafoe (English event) October 5th
3:30pm – 4:30pm EST
Our way of life has radically shifted. As the world prepares to awaken, people are left at varying degrees of readiness. Some are nervous while others eagerly await returning to the rhythms and routines of their lives.

As humans we are hardwired for struggle. We have adapted and found innovative ways of showing up the best we can during this challenging season. We’ve persisted despite the hardships and changes. Yet for many, it came at a cost. Organizations and their teams are tired, depleted, and wobbly, yet it is time we move forward.

In this season of rising after challenging times, we are in a precious place of opportunity to co-create our future. As we plan our next moves, it is imperative that we acknowledge the past while also setting a steady course for re-entry that is research-informed and practical for people at varying degrees of readiness.

In this presentation, Dr. Robyne Hanley-Dafoe will explore her conceptual framework for re-entry readiness that is based on the principles of psychological safety, resiliency, and productivity with purpose.

For a limited time, you could get a $500 or $1,000 Visa Prepaid Card1

As a thank you for your continued business, you could receive a $500 Visa Prepaid Card for 4 referrals that are determined by RBC to be Qualified Mortgage Referrals or a $1,000 Visa Prepaid Card for 6 referrals that are determined by RBC to be Qualified Mortgage Referrals made between September 13th and November 30th.1

As always, don’t hesitate to get in touch with your RBC Mortgage Specialist to learn more about how we can help you build your real estate business. We value your business and are looking forward to the success that lies ahead.
