Aliso Viejo, CA. October 30, 2009. After seven years heading up RealtyU Stefan Swanepoel announced his retirement as Chairman of the RealtyU Group, Inc. and all of its operating subsidiaries.
With Swanepoel gaining national popularity as best-selling author, specifically of the annual Swanepoel TRENDS Report and now also the hugely successful Swanepoel Social Media Report he has decided to spend the majority of his time writing and speaking. Swanepoel is also one of the most sought-after speakers in the real estate industry and has spoken to over 500,000 people during the last decade. He still maintains a busy schedule with some 40 keynote addresses every year and has spoken at almost every major real estate convention across the nation and in many countries across the world including Canada, Great Brittan, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil and South Africa.
Swanepoel has also for the past two years been working on his first non real-estate, mainstream business book titled Surviving Your Serengeti: 7 Truths to Conquer any Business Challenge. The book has already received accolades from various best-selling authors such as Ken Blanchard (The One Minute Manager), Bob Burg (Go-Giver) and Susan Scott (Fierce Conversations) as well as Universities such as UCLA’s Anderson Business Schools. The book is scheduled for a release in summer/fall of 2010. For more information you can visit www.SurvivingYourSerengeti.com
