Session #1: The Time to Win: How to Exceed Your Residents’ Need for Speed with Jay Baer
You’ve probably heard the saying “Time is Money.” It’s been around a long time, but it wasn’t actually true—until now.  Renowned speaker Jay Baer will expound on a key finding from his proprietary new research: 2/3 of people say speed is as important to them as money.


9:30 am to 9:45 am

Brain Break
Let's take a moment to absorb.

9:45 am to 10:45 am

Session #2: Construction, Housing Supply, and the Economy with Ali Wolf
All eyes have been on the Federal Reserve and what their policy means for the economy. How the economy responds to restrictive policy, including consumer spending, construction trends, and inflation, impacts the multifamily industry greatly. Ali Wolf will break it all down in her presentation at this year’s J Turner Research Summit.

Session #3: The New Truths about Prospective Renters: What Research is Revealing with Chelsea Kneeland and Marcus Armstrong
Decisions made today in marketing and operations will impact the future of leasing and the income potential for your assets and portfolio far into the future. The market is only becoming more competitive, but how much do we really know about future renters and their preferences when making those decisions? How has the search for apartments changed with the onslaught of single-family rentals? What does Gen Z value when making rental decisions and what consumer behaviors set generations apart?  Join us to explore these new truths that challenge conventional thinking around today’s renters by reviewing the findings of the latest J Turner Research study.


12:00 pm to 1:45 pm

Lunch Break
Time for a delicious meal to refuel for the second half of the day.

1:45 pm to 2:45 pm

Session #4: Establishing a New Workplace Rhythm Through Diversity and Inclusion with Dr. Shawn Andrews
Today, many companies are striving to be more diverse and inclusive but are falling short. Without a road map for enhancing employee engagement and creating a culture of inclusion, leaders often default to doing things the way they have always been done. That is precisely what Dr. Shawn Andrews, acclaimed thought leader and workplace culture consultant, will discuss in her presentation at this year’s J Turner Research Summit


2:45 pm to 3:00 pm

Brain Break
Let's take a moment to absorb.

3:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Session #5: Motivating Excellence: The Science of Fostering Passion, Loyalty, and Top Performance with Dr. Ron Friedman
How do you motivate others to do their best work? For generations, leaders have received conflicting advice. But now, thanks to groundbreaking new research, we have clear, data-driven insights into the factors that generate employee engagement and sustain performance over the long term. In this compelling and persuasive presentation by keynote speaker Ron Friedman, you’ll learn the surprising truth about what motivates excellence—and it’s not money or titles.


4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Break Before the Fun
That was a full day of exciting presentations; take time to unwind, catch up, or enjoy the surroundings.

Session #1: Multifamily Mythbusters with Turner Batdorf and Peyton Box
In this session, Turner and Peyton of J Turner Research take on some of the long-standing “rules” of the multifamily industry. Just like the popular show, “Mythbusters,” the guys will perform experiments, doing a deep dive into the data to test what the multifamily industry believes to be true. For example, does crime really not have a zip code? Join us and find out whether these longstanding “rules” are busted, plausible, or confirmed.
