Gen. Rick Hillier to Present at REIN's ACRE in Edmonton

October 06, 2014

The Real Estate Investment Network is proud to announce General Rick Hillier (ret.) as our keynote speaker at our upcoming Edmonton REIN workshop on Friday, October 24th and ACRE Live Program – Canada’s leading Real Estate Investment Training event. General Hillier will share with the audience “leadership in the face of adversity” and how to succeed in times of turmoil.


Throughout his career, General Hillier commanded troops from the platoon to multi-national formation level within Canada, Europe, Asia and the United States. In 1998 Hillier was appointed as the first Canadian Deputy Commanding General of III Corps, US Army in Fort Hood, Texas and in 2000 took command of NATO's Multinational Division (Southwest) in Bosnia. In May 2003 Hillier was appointed as Commander of the Army and later that year was selected as the Commander of NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan. Hillier was promoted to General and appointed Chief of the Defence Staff in February 2005. He retired from the Canadian Forces in 2008 after 35 years of service.


“REIN is absolutely honoured to showcase General Hillier as part of our Leadership series,” says CEO Patrick Francey. “Members and guests will benefit tremendously from his experience and can apply what he has learned to their own lives and businesses.  With all the uncertainty and unrest in the world today, putting your head down, following systems, and relying on your team has never been more important.  General Hillier is the right person to share this message.”


Our evening with General Hillier extends into a weekend of real estate training.  “The Authentic Canadian Real Estate (ACRE) Program is absolutely the best real estate training period, let alone the depth and quality of education you get for the inexpensive ticket price,” says Francey.


Real estate investors of all levels learn how to invest in real estate, what to look for in headlines when determining which markets to focus on, how to use the long term economic forecasts to determine risk, as well as how to analyze a property for cash flow and how to manage the property to maximize returns.


For attendees who have already purchased or stumbled into investment real estate, this training provides an opportunity to hear procedures, systems, tips, and insights from the country’s leading investors.


Our evening with General Hillier also includes the brand new list of Alberta’s Top Places to Invest in Real Estate. Learn how communities score in terms of their risks and rewards, which cities to avoid, and which ones offer safe real estate opportunities.


Join us on Friday, October 24th at Northlands Expo Centre in Edmonton, AB for this event for only $199 + tax. Maximize your knowledge and join us for the entire weekend (including the Friday night REIN Workshop) for only $587 + tax.
