Choice Aggregation Services has launched a new peer to peer learning service to help its broker members enhance their business skills.
Speaking to The Adviser at the MFAA conference in Adelaide, Choice’s chief executive Stephen Moore said the peer to peer learning sessions were launched off the back of broker demand.
“Peer to peer learning has evolved over time. Our members have a real desire to learn from each other. We trialled the learning sessions last year and they were so successful that we have rolled it out amongst our full network,” he said.
“The sessions give brokers the chance to hear from their peers, hear what they are doing in their business, what is working for them and what isn’t. They can then use this information and implement what they learn into their own business.”
Mr Moore said the days of brokers listening to a “previous expert” up on stage were numbered.
“While I think there will always be a place for that, peer networking is really what brokers want to do. They want to hear from each other and learn from each other.”
“It also gives us at Choice the chance to hear what hurdles are facing brokers and what they want from their lenders and aggregators – it is a win all round.”
