MFAA Prosper : Mortgage and Finance Brief 08
This year's MFAA National Convention, which takes place on 1-3 June 2011 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, has a raft of world-class speakers lined up that will inform, inspire, educate and entertain brokers from across the country. The plenary sessions will include a talk from poker pro-turned business speaker Caspar Berry, who will speak about risk taking in business, while Rachel Botsman, co-author of What's Mine is Yours is certain to draw the crowds with her session, Bright Futures: Collaborative Consumption in the 21st Century. Brett King, author of Bank 2.0 and strategic adviser to the global financial services sector, will give a comprehensive insight on changing customer behaviour in the mortgage arena; John McGrath, the influential real estate agent and reality TV star will reveal how to maximise your business and personal potential in Good, Better and Best. Robyn Moore, meanwhile, needs little introduction. For over 30 years she has been changing people's perceptions through 'the power of the word' as an educator and in advertising, syndicated radio comedy and animation series, and her session is entitled, Big Words, Big People, Big Futures! There's also a superb line-up of session speakers, including businessman Keith Abraham, who'll present Passion to Succeed, while author Chris Helder will present The Power of Influence. Steve Van Aperen, a.k.a 'the Human Lie Detector', will reveal how to recognise verbal and non-verbal 'tells', while clinical psychologist Professor Trevor Waring will discuss Surviving Your Profession. As well as being able to listen to the speakers, this event offers invaluable opportunities to meet key personnel from the bank and non-bank sphere at the ExpoMart, where you can discuss new products and opportunities. And the social side of any event is important too, so there's an array of social events where you can catch up with old friends and network with your peers. Early bird tickets are available until 20 April at www.mfaaconvention.com.au, and $10 from every full delegate registration will be donated to the Queensland Flood Appeal.
