Aggregator launches new online training for brokers

by Julia Corderoy02 Jun 2015
Plan Australia has launched its inaugural Commercial & Asset Finance Digital Summit this week, as a part of its commitment to innovate the way it delivers services to brokers.

Featuring a series of 12 live stream webinars across two full days, the inaugural PLAN Australia Digital Summit has attracted significant interest from its members.

“PLAN Australia is committed to supporting our brokers to grow through premium aggregation services and market-leading education and training opportunities and this is just another example of our commitment to innovation for the benefit of our brokers,” Plan Australia CEO Phil Quin-Conroy said.

“We are thrilled our very first Digital Summit has been met with such an enthusiastic response from our brokers.”

The Digital Summit will be available exclusively to Plan Australia brokers in a purpose-built online hub, with access to over 20 leading experts. The webinars will be streamed live and brokers will have the opportunity to get involved and ask questions while the sessions are underway.

“We’ve got an impressive panel of industry experts lined up to present live to our brokers, including the CEOs of both the MFAA and CAFBA. Our lender partners have also been very supportive of the initiative and we’ll have representatives from many lenders participating in the sessions as well,” Quin-Conroy said.

While Plan Australia’s traditional PD days are well attended by brokers, Quin-Conroy said digital training initiatives offered brokers another chance to ‘top up’ in areas of interest without spending time and resources on travel or taking a full day out of the office.

“We are seeing record attendance at our PD days and with strong interest in our new Digital Summit it is clear there is a real hunger amongst brokers for business insights and professional development opportunities that they can leverage to grow their businesses,” he said.

“Progress is at the heart of the PLAN Australia business proposition. We will continue to evolve and innovate the way we deliver training services to our members and look forward to bringing more exciting new developments like our Digital Summit to market in the future.”
