Educating the next generation of financial planners and business leaders has never been more important. The recent collapse of major banks, mortgage lenders and financial advisory firms has demonstrated a need for better education of the people leading and advising organisations today. Recent studies have found that financial planners need to be more qualified, more client focused and more aware of the ‘bigger picture’, with a strong need for more structured mentoring and engagement programmes. The goal being to turn financial planning into a profession with higher standards and expectations than we have seen in the past. Expanding your knowledge and skills in Finance will ensure that a savvy contingent of new financial planners are prepared to take your organisation to the next level.
