What is HeadStart?… Who is it for?


HeadStart is a conference for Royal LePage sales associates that is based in western Canada. Since 1986, it has evolved from a motivational rally into a biannual, two-day event whose goal is to entertain, educate, and provide an exciting networking experience in a relaxed and fun environment.


The Origins of HeadStart


In the early 1990s, following its start as an end-of-year rally dedicated to encouraging success in the New Year, HeadStart developed into a Realtor-run, grass-roots conference. Since then, HeadStart has grown into a highly-anticipated event with top quality motivational speakers, hands-on training sessions, entertaining skits, PLUS a huge networking opportunity. Registration numbers vary from 250 to 450 Royal LePage Realtors from across Canada, all of whom are interested in improving their successful careers through listening, learning and sharing ideas and experiences with other successful Realtors.


Originally held in Vancouver, HeadStart went on the road and has visited Kelowna, Victoria, Richmond, Whistler, and Harrison Hot Springs. In 2003 we ‘Cruised To Success’ aboard Holland America to San Diego. In 2005, HeadStart delegates enjoyed the hugely successful Rocky Mountain High event, set at Intrawest’s Panorama Resort, near Invermere, BC. Highlights included meeting the Kokanee Sasquatch, the recruited moose, and the Drum Café Kick-off! For 2007, HeadStart was held at Tigh-Na-Mara Resort on Vancouver Island, where delegates enjoyed a Survivor-themed event. Participants were challenged to make great choices in games and activities, and to develop their network of colleagues from across Canada. 2009 saw us in Penticton, BC, where delegates had a great time touring wineries, golfing on scenic courses, and enjoying our great lineup of speakers and other activities. 2011 HeadStart enjoyed the incredible area of Harrison Hot Springs, BC, where hot tub history was made! Massive Sturgeons were caught and released and everyone enjoyed the Networking environment. In 2013, we were once again set in the Mountains. This time near Kamloops, BC at the amazing Sun Peaks Resort. What a glorious setting for our amazing team of networkers… we even had an unscheduled Fire Drill when the alarm went off during a presentation! Our last event in 2015 was aboard the Princess Cruise Line’s RUBY PRINCESS.


And then, for 2017, we headed back to the ever popular Harrison Hot Springs Resort. In addition we teamed up with Royal LePage National to make HeadStart a National Event!
