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.
Being an aggregator is all about bringing people together for everyone’s benefit. Each year we host more than 150 different events nationally. Our events calendar is brimming with our masterclass series, conferences, professional development days, lender training events, business seminars, compliance and technology training, and award and gala dinners.
Last year with over 6,000 attendances across our events, we ensured our brokers were exposed to quality insights into the industry. Not to mention how invaluable the networking our events provide with lenders, AFG staff, and other brokers. By joining AFG, you’re assured of training, tools, and systems to help you serve your customers and grow your business. And that’s what keeps customers coming back again, and referring their friends and family to you.
It’s the little things that add up to make a big difference. Nationally and throughout the year we hold professional development days, available free to every one of our brokers. Our PD Days ensure you continue to develop your skills and your business.
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.
The AFG Masterclass is an annual day of professional development and motivational conferencing, closing in a cocktail function. It takes place in a road show format around the country visiting Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
All AFG members are invited to attend this free-of-charge premier event. The day features a line-up of top-notch guest speakers, industry experts, lender partners and AFG representatives, and provides our members with the opportunity to speak face-to-face to AFG’s senior management team and high-level industry leaders.
This annual conference brings together AFG’s strongest performing writers in the commercial and equipment finance writing space.
The program includes professional development, functions, and activities created to facilitate networking. Members are provided with rare access to top decision makers at various lenders, providing the opportunity to forge relationships to underpin business expansion.
