See you at our first Professional Development Day for 2018!

Held twice a year, our Professional Development Days are dedicated to your learning and education. We’ll be featuring a wide range of information, peer-to-peer learning and leading speakers so you can remain at the forefront of your profession and what’s happening in our industry.

We’ve created 3 streams so you can pick the presentations most relevant to your business journey. We will also be joined by keynote presenter and AFL legend Kevin Sheedy AM as he shares his experiences on leadership and working in a changing environment.

Free to attend, this PD Day will be entertaining, valuable and very practical, with plenty of opportunities to network with your fellow brokers, lender BDMs and of course, your friends and colleagues at Connective over morning tea and lunch.

Plus, for the first time, we are trailing a dedicated Compliance Booth at our PD Days. ACL Holders and Credit Reps alike are invited to book in for your own one-on-one session with a member of our Compliance Support Team, just click on the Compliance Consultation button below.
