Better Client Relationships CPD Workshop

RDR events for IFAs

7 Sep 2012

Thursday 27th September 2012 10:00 to 16:00 The Westminster Suite, IOD The HUB, 35 New Broad Street, London EC2 1NH

Delegates participating in this workshop can claim up to 5 CPD hours towards the CII member CPD scheme

The Retail Distribution Review (RDR) is a reality and will herald a new dawn for the retail financial services industry.

If you want to ensure client trust and loyalty and are concerned at the effects of regulatory change, then you need behavioural skills that succeed.

Do you have a system for understanding, exploring and applying behavioural economics and judgmental biases to ensure relational risk is managed and clients value your services? Do you have a system to ensure clients will remain loyal and trust your services? Not sure how to create one?

Join us on 27th September and you’ll learn exactly how to create your very own Better Client Relationships programme - and how to make it work. This half-day CPD workshop takes you through the process step by step. By the end you’ll have a solid, workable system AND the motivation to make it happen.

“I thought the workshop was really good. I came away with some very useful ideas.  I’ve attended much longer, expensive seminars in the past and have left feeling as though I’ve done all the work for not much benefit. A very different feeling here. My overall evaluation: Excellent.” Carol Hunter Relationship Manager Myddleton Croft ltd.
