Inaugural National Finance Broker Day kicks off today

by AB17 Aug 2016
A webinar featuring a panel of industry professionals will be the centrepiece of the inaugural National Finance Brokers Day (NFBD) today.

An initiative of Suncorp Bank business development manager Dino Pacella, with support from the wider industry, the day aims to highlight the key role brokers play in helping Australians achieve their financial goals.

“This is truly a historic day for the 18,000 strong broking industry as we come together to celebrate our profession and show just how important a role we play,” Pacella said.

“NFBD has been 12 months in the making and we are overwhelmed with the support we have received from the industry, from brokers to aggregators to lenders,” he said, declaring the “day is not owned by any one person or group”.

Along with publicity promoting the benefits of the broker channel, NFBD will also feature a live streaming panel discussion featuring an array of Australia’s top broking experts who will field questions.

The FBAA’s Peter White, CEO of lending at Yellow Brick Road Tim Brown, Echofield founder Paul Ryan, and the MFAA’s Stephen Hale make up the expert panel and will be joined by special guest Therese O’Neill, founder of Alphabroking Mentoring.

“This is a unique opportunity to tap into the minds of industry leaders and ask questions to those at the coalface.”

Pacella, who will moderate the panel, said the live stream begins at 4:30 AEST and can be accessed via the NFBD Facebook page.
