Reapit has announced that it is to embark on a significant buying spree to acquire other companies following the decision by its CEO Gary Barker to step down.As we reported yesterday, Barker is to join Launch B, a new proptech start-up set up by Purplebricks founder Michael Bruce due to launch officially later this year, although more details are expected in the next few weeks.But Reapit has come out fighting following Barker’s departure, aware that its success in recent years has been attributable in part to Barker’s energy and drive.The company says expansion will now come from organic and strategic mergers and acquisitions activity.Although no date has been set for Barker’s departure from Reapit, he is to hand over the reins immediately to interim CEO Adrian Gill while the search for a new leader is completed.“I am extremely proud of everything we’ve accomplished as a team at Reapit,” says Barker. “We have grown from a regional solution to a global player that, through industry-leading solutions like the Foundations platform, has brought unmatched innovation to how estate agencies run and grow their businesses.“To that end, we have never stopped championing better, more open proptech solutions for estate agents and through the innovation of Foundations for example, have done exactly that. Now there is an opportunity for me to do that again with another brand.“To me, this is not goodbye as I will not only remain as a supportive shareholder of Reapit, but my new company has already signed up to Foundations. The PropTech revolution is now in full swing.”Reapit has won The Negotiator’s Gold Prize at The Negotiator Awards for “Best Agency Software” for three consecutive years.Launch B gary barker Kenny Bruce Michael Bruce Reapit July 15, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Beloved folk singer and songwriter Joni Mitchell celebrated her 75th birthday late last year back on November 7th. In celebration of the milestone trip around the sun, Mitchell was surrounded by musical colleagues, fans, and friends who all took part in a pair of sold-out tribute shows at The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles on November 6th and 7th. The star-studded concerts included performances and appearances by James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones, Graham Nash, Kris Kristofferson, Los Lobos, Seal, and Rufus Wainwright, just to name a few. The two shows were professionally filmed, and plans to screen the concert film in movie theaters across the country for one night only were announced on Wednesday.The film will be titled, The Music Center Presents Joni 75: A Birthday Celebration, and will give fans who weren’t in attendance a behind-the-scenes (and front of house) look at the two-night birthday celebrations when it screens in select theaters on February 7th. Artists who participated in the two shows gave tasteful covers from Mitchell’s 19 studio album catalogue, including “River” and “Woodstock” (performed by Taylor); “Blue” and “All I Want” (performed by Wainwright); “Our House” (performed by Nash); “Dreamland”, “Nothing Can Be Done”, “Big Yellow Taxi” (performed by Los Lobos); “And “Down To You” (performed by Brandi Carlile).Related: Watch Joni Mitchell Perform A Full Concert With Jaco Pastorius, Pat Metheny, And Michael BreckerFans who can’t make it to the one-night screening of the film will also get the chance to listen to the performances when Verve Records releases the official soundtrack from the film a few weeks later on March 1st. Until then, the official trailer can be watched in full below. The concerts, of course, featured rare public appearances from Mitchell, who can be seen sharing a big smile of appreciation out in the audience towards the start of the two-minute promo video.JONI 75: A Birthday Celebration – Official Trailer[Video: Trafalgar Releasing]Mitchell has kept out of the public eye almost completely (with exception of special events like this) since suffering a brain aneurysm back in the spring of 2015. She’s since been in the process of recovery, and has been doing well with her health progress in the years since according to her close friends. She was even able to take the stage to blow out cake candles during a full-cast finale on her birthday.Tickets for the February 7th screening are on sale now.[H/T Variety]

I’m not a zealot when it comes to video games. There’s only one game that I play on my son’s Xbox, and that’s FIFA 18 (soccer). Most often, I’m playing as the U.S. Women’s National Team. I can’t even find the men’s team on the video game, which partly speaks for my age and partly speaks to how bad our U.S. Men’s National Team has been in recent years. Ouch!This time of year, my eyes are glued to the Women’s World Cup. Not just watching our team making history with a 13-0 win over Thailand (wowzers!), but all the sights and sounds, messaging and meaning that make up the world’s stage.This leads me to one ad that caught my eye. Scrolling across the perimeter walls it read: Dare to Create.What’s the context? What’s the connection?I’d like to tell you it was an ad for a credit union or community bank. How creativity redefines one’s path. That creativity inspires us to do more and unites us to see the big picture. And how when life throws you curveballs, creativity is the answer.

3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Robert McGarvey A blogger and speaker, Robert McGarvey is a longtime journalist who has covered credit unions extensively, notably for Credit Union Times as well as the New York Times and TheStreet, … Web: www.mcgarvey.net Details When Kirk Kordeleski, the one time Bethpage Federal Credit Union CEO, offered up his belief that the credit unions that will thrive are the ones that commit to doubling their asset size every five years, I asked him what credit unions he had been competing with on Long Island.None, said Kordeleski. I prodded, was this just the usual credit union cant where nobody competes with other credit unions (and of course that is nonsense because 95% of the credit unions that compete with other financial institutions mainly compete with other credit unions)?Nope, insisted Kordeleski. He went to sleep every night dreaming and scheming about how to take away market share from the big banks and he woke up every morning excited about “beating the #@@&^” out of those big banks which, he said, dominated the Long Island marketplace.Competing with other credit unions, he indicated, is tantamount to fighting over crumbs. To make a real difference for your institution go after the institutions that in effect have big slices of the pie.Even better, said Kordeleski, the $1 billion or so you win from a Chase probably won’t even be noticed by them. You can dramatically increase your size by taking business from institutions that are so big they won’t even care.(Hear my podcast with Kordelesky here. He elaborates in step by step detail on his growth plan.)Don’t believe it?As I mulled Kordeleski’s formula, I remembered a recent conversation I had had with Gary Oakland, the longtime CEO of BECU who grew that institution from assets of a few hundred million to many billions. His years were characterized by extraordinary growth. Did he get there by beating credit unions?No, said Oakland. BECU’s big break came when Seattle bank Seafirst effectively went belly up in the early 1980s and Bank of America took over its remains. But B of A was not especially interested in dominating the Washington State market and, for BECU, growing market share was a matter of executing on credit union principles, focusing on member service and opening the doors wide to welcome the flood of new business.(Hear the Gary Oakland podcast here. He recounts BECU’s growth strategy in detail.)Then another thought hit me. You are who you compete with. Compete against a stumbling, failing small credit union and, guess what, you have set your standards very low indeed.Compete against the best and that is the standard to which you are holding yourself and your institution. Which standard do you think prepares an institution for significant successes?Finally, I remembered an off the record conversation I had some years ago with the CEO of a large military focused credit union. Who’s your competition? Who keeps you up at night? Pentagon Federal? I badgered him.Finally he interrupted and said, USAA.The San Antonio bank, he said, was the one institution that worried him. Other credit unions, not so much. Was that arrogance? Nope. It was brilliant.That is because USAA is bigger than any credit union except Navy Federal and when its ancillary businesses (such as insurance) are added in it probably is bigger than all credit unions.It also – and this is key – is highly regarded by its customers and even its competitors.USAA is a world class competitor. Measure yourself against it and you will perform at a very high level indeed.That is a crucial reality. We become our competitive set. Try to beat the slowest runner in the next community 10K and you just may – but you’ll be the second slowest runner in your group.Measure yourself against the best runners – from Ethiopia and Kenya – and you are talking about 10K times in the 26 minute range. You can’t do that? Probably not. But what if training against that standard cuts a minute, or five, off your time? What if??Running is one thing, financial services is another? You bet. But know that in the case of banking (unlike world class 10K running) you very realistically can win. According to Kordeleski, you absolutely can beat the big banks. A credit union has significant advantages. It has tax exempt status. Management is not tyrannized by the stock market. Member service is baked into the DNA. And so a credit union that wants to can consistently beat the money center banks on rates and fees and service.Kordeleski proved that at Bethpage. Oakland proved it at BECU. Jim Blaine proved it at SECU (Blaine’s podcast is here).A credit union genuinely is a better deal for 99% of consumers who can get all their financial services needs met in most credit unions.You can win and it starts with picking the competition that forces you to be better.Do that and winning is the next step.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is a fraud. I totally agree that Sen. Al Franken should be held accountable for his actions. But her statement in regard to him stating “As elected officials, we should be held to the highest standards — not the lowest” shook my memory. Wasn’t it senator “holier than thou” who was seen and heard throwing out “F-bombs” in a live press conference recently, shown and heard on networks nationwide.I guess that’s her and her “party” endorsing high standards.

President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo decided on Thursday to push back the 2020 National Games (PON) in Papua to October next year due to the COVID-19 outbreak.The decision followed recommendations from Youth and Sports Minister Zainudin Amali and Coordinating Human Development and Culture Minister Muhadjir Effendy — both had expressed doubt as to whether Papua would be ready to host the Games initially scheduled for October this year.”One of our considerations is that the construction projects for several venues have been delayed [due to the pandemic]. [Construction] materials from Java could not enter Papua after Papua closed its airports and ports,” Zainudin said in a virtual press briefing on Thursday. In a meeting last week with House of Representatives Commission X, which oversees sports, lawmakers gave a nod to the sports ministry’s initial plan to push back the PON to March next year. But the proposal was met with opposition from the National Sports Committee’s (KONI) regional offices, which projected that their athletes would not be ready for the Games.Read also: Indonesia braces for hectic year in sports after COVID-19Zainudin said October would be the most convenient time to host the PON next year, one of Indonesia’s busiest years for sports as the country is expected to take part in at least seven international multisport events, including the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.Next year, Indonesia is also set to host FIFA’s Under-20 World Cup and the 2021 Indonesian MotoGP in Mandalika, West Nusa Tenggara.Topics : “After considering our reports, the President decided to postpone the National Games,” he said.Read also: COVID-19: Ministry, House agree to postpone 2020 PON in PapuaPapua Governor Lukas Enembe had earlier told Zainudin that Papua was currently focusing on battling the outbreak, making it impossible for the region to prepare for the PON.As of Wednesday afternoon, Papua has reported 123 cases and six deaths.
