Better Business Summit

The Better Business Awards followed on from the Better Business Summit, which is visiting five capital cities across Australia.

The event will next visit Perth on 16 March.

Partnered by NAB, the Better Business Summit is jam-packed full of practical business tools, training and business intelligence to help brokers build a more productive and profitable business.

Brokers will hear from the founder of one of Australia’s leading health and fitness brands, Michelle Bridges, as she leads a fascinating session on how she has built her brand and navigated roadblocks to create more sales opportunities and convert more deals.

Ms Bridges, who has previously praised the value of mortgage brokers, will also reveal how business leaders can perfect their profile, positioning and pitch to win more clients, more frequently.

In the afternoon, brokers will hear from neuro-linguistic programming expert and bestselling author Chris Helder, who will reveal the power of “useful belief” and impart real-world sales advice in a high-energy session that will teach brokers tactics for following up leads and closing more leads.

Leading economist Stephen Koukoulas will also provide attendees with key property and market information to help brokers give sage economic and financial advice to their clients, while marketing guru Beth Powell will unveil marketing tips and four simple steps that will help boost the efficacy of digital marketing campaigns.

Brokers will also hear from James O’Loghlin, host of the ABC’s TV show The New Inventors, to learn more about fintech and how to create a lasting point of difference, and how brokers can innovate to be at the top of their game.

With limited tickets remaining, book your seat now to make sure you don’t miss out.
