Aggregator to host digital PD day

by AB29 Nov 2016
PLAN Australia is set to host its second commercial and asset finance digital PD day on Thursday 1 December.  

The aggregator says the event reinforces its commitment to delivering innovative services and dynamic education opportunities to brokers. 

The online event follows the launch of PLAN Australia’s inaugural commercial & asset Finance Digital Summit in 2015, and its inaugural Digital PD Day launched to brokers in February this year. 

The Digital PD Day will include six live-streamed, interactive sessions broadcast in high definition and brokers can actively participate and ask questions in real time.

The sessions explore a range of topics including where this area of finance is heading and how to harness opportunities within the commercial and asset finance, described in further detail on PLAN’s website.  

PLAN Australia CEO Anja Pannek said the digital event had attracted strong interest from its 1,500-strong member base. 

“The launch of this year’s Commercial & Asset Finance Digital PD Day builds on the success of our first two digital events and reaffirms our commitment to leading the industry through innovation.” 

Speaking to Australian Broker, Pannek said the Digital PD Day is also for brokers not yet in the commercial and asset finance space but wish to make it part of their business.

"The content will be relevant to brokers who are only just starting to dip their toes into this area, as well as those who are already quite experienced. 

"Representatives from ANZ, CBA, NAB, Westpac, Bankwest, ING, La Trobe, Liberty, Macquarie, St George, Thinktank and CBRE Asia Pacific will be taking part in the event. Brokers will also be able to learn from some of PLAN Australia’s leading commercial and asset finance writers." 
"PLAN Australia sees Commercial lending and Asset Finance as two of the biggest growth areas in the market and we want to ensure our brokers have the right tools, access and support to tap into this opportunity," Pannek told Australian Broker

Pannek said the digital format was perfect for brokers with limited time and varying needs although the aggregator continues to offer brokers traditional face-to-face training.

“We see our digital program as complementary to our broad range of face-to-face learning opportunities,” Pannek said. 

“One of brokers’ most precious commodities is time. Through our tailored online development opportunities, PLAN Australia brokers can select the sessions most relevant to them and use their time most efficiently.”
