2 TIPS 2013 Aşağıda GRI dan en İYİ ŞEKİLDE faydalanmak İÇİN TAVSİYELERİMİZİ BULABİLİRSİNİZ. GRI oturumları panel şeklinde değildir. Oturum başkanının rehberliği eşliğinde kendi evinizde arkadaşlarınızla sohbet edermiş gibi konuşmalar ve tartışmalar şeklindedir. Sadece (eş)başkanlar değil, her katılımcı eşit olarak katılım sağlar. Oturum (eş)başkanının görevi, HERKEZİ konuşmaya ve katılmaya teşvik etmektir. (Eş)başkanlar odanın farklı yerlerinde oturur ve oturuma diğer katıılımcılarla eşit oranda katılım yapar, ne daha az, ne daha fazla. Eğer yeni ortaklarla iletişime geçmek faydalı olabilirse, sizi dilediğiniz kadar faal ve vokal olmaya davet ediyoruz. Bu, diğerlerinin sizi, sizin de diğerlerini daha iyi tanımanızı sağlayacaktır. Oturum Başkanı, sorularını, genelde sessizlikle sonuçlanacağından, odadaki herkese genel olarak sormayacaktır; isim vererek, işaret ederek belli bir kişiye yönelterek soracaktır. Ama herkesi yorum yapmaya, soru sormaya ve farklı fikir beyan etmeye teşvik ediyoruz. Lütfen oturum saati geldiğinde tercih ettiğiniz oturumun odasına gidiniz. Odalar oturumlar başladıktan sonra dolduğundan, boş oda sizi yanıltmasın. Hızlı bir şekilde dolacaktır. Bazı katılımcılar kimsenin duyamayacağı şekilde alçak sesle konuşmaktadırlar. Lütfen sesinizi yükseltiniz ve eğer duyamıyorsanız diğerlerini de seslerini yükseltmeye teşvik ediniz. Konuşmayı tekelinize almaktan, satış konuşması haline getirmekten kaçınınız. Oturum başkanı bu şekildeki konuşmaları sonlandıracaktır. GRI formatı, sektörün önde gelen üst düzey yöneticilerini, mümkün olduğu kadar doğal ve spontane bir ortamda, paylaşmaya, öğrenmeye ve arkadaşlıklar edinmeye teşvik edecek şekilde tasarlanmıştır. GRI toplantılarını nasıl daha iyi yapabileceğimiz konusunda tavsiyelere açığız. MEDYA KATILIMI Oturumlar sırasında gazeteciler not tutabilirler. GRI a katılan gazeteciler isme veya ve ya şirket ismine yer vermek için kişinin onayını gerektiren Chatnam House anlaşmasını imzalıyorlar. Bunun dışında konferans sonrası katılımcılara dağıtılmak üzere GRI tarafından görevlendirilen öğrenciler oturumlar sırasında not tutabilirler. HERE ARE A FEW TIPS THAT MAY BE HELPFUL IN GETTING THE MOST OUT OF THE GRI GRI discussions are NOT panels. They are like after-dinner conversations in one s own living room with a few good friends under the guidance of the moderating Chair. Everyone participates equally, not just the Discussion (co-)chairs. The job of the moderating Chair is to make EVERYBODY talk and engage. Discussion co-chairs sit scattered about the room and participate no more, no less than anyone else in the room. If connecting with new partners can be useful, we encourage you to engage as vocally and actively as you might enjoy. This will enable others to get to know you and you to get to know them. The Moderating Chair will be addressing questions directly to particular participants, not just to anyone unspecified in the room atlarge, as this is usually greeted with pregnant silence. Even so, you are encouraged to comment, question, dissent or otherwise interject. As no one will prompt you, please join the discussion room of your choice in time. Rooms only fill in after a discussion starts and you need not be alarmed by a near empty room. It will quickly get crowded. Some participants speak so softly as to be unheard by most. Speak up and remind others to do so if you can t hear them. Avoid monopolizing conversation, self-promotion or commercial pitches as the Moderating Chair has been urged to cut them off. The GRI format was designed to enable senior industry leaders to share, learn and make friends in as natural, spontaneous and collegial a setting as possible. We welcome your suggestions as to how we can do better. Media Presence While journalists may sometimes take notes during discussions, they only ever do so after signing a Chatham House confidentiality agreement under which they commit not to quote for attribution to a person or to a company, except with specific consent from the respective parties. In addition, students or other reporters summarize most of the discussions and take notes that are subsequently distributed to all participants.
3 HOŞGELDİNİZ WELCOME 2013 The job of Discussion Chairs at the GRI is not to talk. It is to make others talk, engage and connect. Ongoing updates at Türkiye GRI 2013 e hoşgeldiniz. Bütün GRI konferanslarında olduğu gibi, Türkiye GRI 2013 te, bugün burada bulunan, sektörün farklı alanlarında deneyimlere sahip bir çok kişi tarafından günümüzün sıcak konularını tartışmak üzere yaratıldı. Onlara ne kadar teşekkür etsek az. We are delighted to welcome you to the Turkey GRI As with all GRI get-togethers, the Turkey GRI 2013 was created by many present here today who have contributed front-line expertise, intellectual brilliance, financial resources and more, to reach out to fellow leading lights and create a program to discuss today s issues. We can t thank them enough. All material throughout this program is subject to change without notice deki GRI toplantılarının herhangi birinde bir oturumda (eş)başkanlık yapmayı faydalı bulursanız, size programda en iyi şekilde yer verebilmek için, sizi bizimle kontağa geçmeye davet ediyoruz. Farklı bir şekilde katılımı da tercih edebilirsiniz. Lütfen oturum sırasında söz alın, aktif olarak katılın, çünkü GRI da her şey sizinle, sizin işinizle, sizin fırsatlarınızla ilgili. GRI deneyiminizin çok faydalı olmasını dileriz. Bizimle olduğunuz için teşekkürler. Emrah Şenel Senior Director, Turkey GRI Global Real Estate Institute If (co-)chairing one or more discussions could be useful to you at any forthcoming GRI event, we invite you to contact us and discuss how best to put them on the program. If any other type of involvement could be useful, it is similarly welcome. In the meantime, please join in the fray and engage in the discussions as if this was about you, your business, your opportunities. Because it is. We wish you a great GRI. Thanks for being with us.
