Conferencing and Events - AFG - Australian Finance Group

Broker events and conferences

Masterclasses, conferences, development days, training opportunities, awards and dinners… our calendar is full of events to make sure your business can be the very best it can be.

Each year we host more than 150 different events across Australia. From our masterclass series to conferences, professional development days, lender training events, commercial, compliance and technology training days, award and gala dinners, our events calendar is brimming.

Last year alone we had over 6,000 attendances across our events and conference programs, ensuring our brokers have the best insight, contacts, training, knowledge, tools and systems to ensure the value they deliver to their clients is top notch. And that’s what keeps our brokers’ customers coming back again and again and referring others, and how our brokers grow their businesses so successfully.

AFG National Broker Conference:
Sydney 2017

The AFG National Broker Conference was held in June 2017 and brought together more than 1,000 people in a gathering the size of which had not been seen before across our broking group. With incredible speakers, including The Hon. Jeff Kennett AC, Former Premier of Victoria and founding Chairman of beyondblue, and Peter Kell, ASIC Deputy Chair, who inspired and enlightened, and networking with brokers and industry leaders from across the country.

This Conference delivered outcomes like never before; seeing brokers inspired, and armed with the right information, analytics and tools to ensure their business is ready to maximise the opportunities that lay ahead.


Professional development

It’s the little things that add up to make a big difference. In all states and all through the year we hold professional development days, available free to every one of our brokers, to make sure you continue to develop the skills that will make your business better.


Social events

It’s hard to get a lot of satisfaction from what you do unless you enjoy it. That’s why we like to hold social events such as award dinners and Christmas celebrations. Sure, it’s a chance to meet other brokers and lenders and to catch up on some invaluable networking, but it’s also a chance to relax and enjoy yourselves. We know you deserve it.


And the award goes to…

This year in each state we’ll be congratulating the very best in our industry. From recognising the Best New Broker to the Champion Loan Broker and the success of many others, it’s one of the highlights of our events calendar.
