MFAA Prosper : Mortgage and Finance Brief 13
Mortgage & Finance brief 63 Women in the mortgage sector can network with their peers, ask for advice and discuss the latest issues in the industry at the LinkedIn WIMBN group page. Discussions range from job-seeking tips to fees vs commissions. TOP DISCUSSIONS Therese O’Neill: Why are there not enough women in this industry? Jana Fisher: I think quite a lot of women find it an intimidating environment; I know I did early on. I believe that in the past many women haven’t been encouraged to develop confidence with money/finances and this may have contributed to the lack of women in our industry. Finance broking is actually an ideal career for many women. I have found that my clients relate well to me because I am a mother, have good attention to detail and genuinely care about what their needs are. Nancy Youssef: It’s like anything – perception! The industry for so long has been viewed as a ‘boys club’ and not a traditional career choice for females. Lee Dittmer: It’s great to see more women in the industry, with some of the most successful brokers being women – that’s a great message to get across. Conni Warren: Anyone running seminars? I am looking to run a series of seminars in my town this year and I’m wondering what all of you have done and how it has gone. Especially looking for new and innovative ideas. Vicki Mitchell-Taylor: First homeowner seminars are always popular! I always invite regular referrers (solicitor, real estate agent, insurance broker) in to speak as well. My latest introduction is a workbook so they can take notes. Gen Y in particular like to do their research first before speaking to a broker.••• Women in mortgage Business netWork event PrevieWs 28 february 2012 style seCrets WorkshoP There is no better time than the new year to reinvent your style.
