Two brokers have commended The Adviser’s Better Business Summit for its accessibility to those who live outside of Australia’s east coast.
Tracey Imbuldeniya of Property Finance Online and James Schulze of High Rise Financial Solutions reside in Western Australia and South Australia, respectively, and both believe the summit’s national footprint makes it a valuable investment for brokers.
“We usually need to travel and take a minimum of two days away from the business for conferences on the east coast,” Ms Imbuldeniya said.
“It can be very expensive with airfares, accommodation and the conference cost, and takes the additional time. Bringing the conference to all brokers here is a huge saving in both time and money.”
Meanwhile, Mr Schulze said the summit presents a convenient day for brokers of each state to come together and bounce ideas off one another.
“The convenient side of things is that you can really participate in an event like this without the need to take too much time out of the business but it’s also back to the fact that there's networking opportunities with local people,” he said.
“If you go interstate to these sorts of events there are obviously networking opportunities at a national level but it's really good to be able to spend some time with the people that are local in your state.
“We find that really valuable, to be able to share ideas and knowledge with people locally and build those relationships. That's been very valuable for us in terms of learning the industry and growing our business.”
The Adviser’s Better Business Summit is now in its third consecutive year, presenting insights from some of Australia’s most established business people.
The premier event took out the Business Event of the Year category at this year’s Publish Awards (previously the Publishers Australia Excellence Awards) and was named a finalist in the respected Australian Magazine Awards’ Event of the Year 2015.
Following the Better Business Summit will be The Adviser’s Better Business Awards – a ceremonial dinner that will recognise the top-performing brokers in each state and acknowledge those lenders and aggregator BDMs that are best servicing the brokers’ evolving needs.
The Adviser’s Better Business Summit, in conjunction with The Adviser’s Better Business Awards, will be held in Brisbane on 18 February, Melbourne on 25 February, Sydney on 3 March, Adelaide on 11 March and Perth on 17 March.
