365 Connect Explores Staying Distantly Connected in The New Normal During Live Webcast

NEW ORLEANS, LA – 365 Connect, a leading provider of award-winning digital marketing, leasing, and resident service platforms for the multifamily housing industry, announced today that its CEO, Kerry W. Kirby, will serve as keynote speaker in a live webcast. The webcast, From Six Degrees to Six Feet of Separation: Staying Distantly Connected in The New Normal, is scheduled to air on June 17, 2020 at 3:00 P.M. ET on, the largest media resource in the multifamily housing industry.

As Americans adjust to the “new normal,” people everywhere are altering their behaviors and interactions with others. From Six Degrees to Six Feet of Separation: Staying Distantly Connected in The New Normal will take a closer look at these social shifts and offer solutions for multifamily operators wishing to stay connected with their prospects and residents. The webcast will also discuss how technology is actively reshaping our relationships with peers and business partners, exploring the many ways next-generation capabilities can assist communities during this challenging time.

“Even as American cities emerge from lockdown, many people still do not feel comfortable with returning to traditional, in-person processes, like shopping and eating out. Apartment hunting will be no different,” explains Kirby. “In response, apartment communities must lean into contactless workflows that transform their operations and serve our increasingly digital society.”

Joining Kirby is property management expert, Ernest F. Oriente of PowerHour, an industry professional since 1988 and the author of SmartMatch Alliances. Oriente and Kirby have presented over 125 webcasts together, covering an array of topics from strategies on maintaining optimum performance of multifamily communities to the latest technology trends. With a combined experience of almost 50 years in the multifamily housing industry, Oriente and Kirby deliver comprehensive, educational, and leading-edge programming.

Oriente responded, “Kerry is an unparalleled thought leader in the multifamily housing arena, and I am excited to join him in this discussion. As with all the material we produce for our webcast series, we strive to deliver relevant, straightforward information to our audience, so they can better prepare for the newest wave of developments in the market and maintain their business goals.”

Kirby concluded, “Right now, multifamily professionals are faced with multiple challenges, from operating with reduced staff to providing a safe environment for their employees and residents. Our industry must embrace robust digital solutions that automate transactions and fulfill the resident’s need for a contactless experience.”
