Every year, Keller Williams hosts a conference for employees. The annual conference is called the Family Reunion, and agents, admin and support staff look forward to this long weekend of catching up with associates from across the country, seeing how the company did the previous year and learning about new tools and access to help them going forward.
This year’s Family Reunion was held in New Orleans, Louisiana and welcomed some 17,000 Keller Williams family members to talk about the company.
On stage during Gary Keller’s keynote address, was a gentleman painting a canvas. As Keller’s speech went on, he told the story of a recent visit to Rome, Italy. He found the painter in an alley and fell in love with his work. Keller invited him to #kwfw2019 and the painter accepted! Keller even let him speak at Family Reunion where he thanked Keller for the exposure and the chance to showcase his work in the US.
Our own Amanda Shore travelled to NOLA for the meeting and got to meet the painter! She fell in love with a colorful tulip painting the artist had on display. It was perfect timing! Our team recently moved offices within our Market Center and we needed some art for our very bear and VERY beige walls.
The beautiful canvas hangs in our new office and welcomes everyone. There’s even a note from the painter!
