The big four bank has invited brokers to tune into its inaugural Digital Professional Development Day, a live-streamed event designed to provide brokers with the practical tools required to improve productivity.
National Australia Bank (NAB) will host a PD Day on Wednesday, 21 March, featuring five live-streamed sessions, which will include:
- business lending opportunities
- economic and property market trends for 2018
- navigating regulatory change
- using technology to obtain a competitive edge in marketing
The interactive sessions will be led by investment industry commentator Freda Miriklis, who will be joined by a range of panellists including NAB executive general manager of broker partnerships Anthony Waldron, NAB general manager of broker distribution Steve Kane, general manager of NAB commercial broker Chris Thomas, NAB senior economist Tony Kelly, NAB commercial broker head of small business John Shillington as well as author and futurist Steve Sammartino.
The sessions will be accessible online from 11.30am and will provide brokers with the opportunity to submit questions to presenters.
Those watching will be eligible to receive a total of 3.25 CPD points for the Finance Brokers Association of Australia (FBAA) and the Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia (MFAA).
NAB general manager of broker distribution Steve Kane said that the initiative is a sign of the bank’s active support for the broking industry.
Mr Kane added: “By giving access to such exceptional knowledge, experience and professionals within the industry, we are actively supporting the careers of NAB-accredited brokers.
“For our very first Digital PD Day, we have focused on the challenging issues brokers commonly face — from property market conditions to regulation and rapidly changing technology.
“The sessions have been designed to offer brokers practical ways to accelerate their businesses, take full advantage of new opportunities and provide a great experience for their customers.”
