Jeremy Duncombe, director of intermediary distribution at Accord Mortgages, said 3,800 brokers had signed up to the mutual’s educational, broker-focused Growth Series by April this year and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
The series covers a raft of key issues including lead generation, best use of public relations, using Linkedin effectively and other social media and offers a range of mediums from video to podcasts and handy guides.
Jane Benjamin, director, mortgages at Sesame Bankhall Group said: “This is not a product push from Accord, it’s a training and development opportunity exploring ways we can all work together.”
She added: “Embrace the opportunities in the market. Have a look at your whole business strategy and business plan and where you add value for your customers and make sure your customers know you are a gold star broker.”
