The Right Mortgage to hold first virtual National Training Event
The Right Mortgage and Protection Network has revealed that it will be holding its first virtual National Training Event on 26 November 2020.
These events are put on by the network each year, but this it has made the decision to take everything online, so as to ensure members had up to date information and assistance, and that members could access and attend the events from anywhere in the UK.
The network has also held over 70 webinars since the beginning of the year.
The national training event, which has been given the theme ‘Broker Vision: Navigating Business Through Changing Times’, will explore how the network’s brokers, lender and provider partners are navigating business through these changing times, and aims to provide a unique ‘broker’s eye view’ on the challenges and opportunities presented by 2020.
This year’s online event will include: keynote presentations from key industry players; best practice advice from brokers; panel discussions across multiple product lines, with the ability for members to submit questions; a virtual exhibition hall; and an awards ceremony celebrating members’ achievements.
Lender panels will include the likes of Kevin Roberts from Legal and General Mortgage Club, Caroline Mirakian from Pepper, Louisa Richie from Fleet, Chris Kirby from Kensington Mortgages, and Nick Parker from Aldermore.
Protection panels will feature providers including Bonnie Earl from Met Life, Mark Godding from Aegon, Mark Cracknell from Aviva, Peter Hamilton from Zurich, and Vincent O’Connor from Royal London.
The event’s general insurance panels will include Brian Coulton from Paymentshield, Lee Denton from Source and Sarah Watts from Legal and General.
With the growth of the later life lending and private medical insurance (PMI) arms of the The Right Mortgage and Protection Network this year, the event will also feature panels for these areas.
The later life lending panels will include Craig Kerrigan from More2Life, Hattie Tales from Pure, Les Pick from Canada Life and Michelle Peskett from Legal and General, while the private medical insurance panels will include speakers from Vitality and The Exeter
The event will also include a catch-up option, giving advisers the opportunity to access content from the virtual event at any point after it has taken place, should they not be able to make the live event.
Martin Wilson, CEO at The Right Mortgage, said: “Following the success of our webinars, talks and webcasts, we knew there was a clear need for our National Training Event to adapt to an online format featuring content from a range of our providers and specialist divisions.
“We recognise the value these events offer to our members, as well as a chance for us to recognise their hard work and achievements in what has been an unpredicted year, and so we want to ensure we are helping our members emerge on the other side of everything 2020 has thrown at them, stronger in their knowledge of their service areas than ever before.
“We are confident that, alongside the support of our providers, headline sponsors, and exhibitors, who will be providing our members with strong, informative talks, that this year’s event will certainly be one to remember.
“I’m excited to see the hard work of all involved come to fruition on the 26th November and welcome our advisers to register and get involved by using the hashtag #rightmortgageNTE to interact on the day”
