A TV icon, Mr Body Language and a police officer walked into a conference...

05 January 2017

We had the pleasure of participating in the FBAA National Industry conference in the last week of November. As always it’s an outstanding event bringing together an 800 strong mix of brokers, celebrities, gurus and experts. Here are our highlights.



While we work in the finance industry there’s much we can learn from other industries and take back to our day jobs. Hearing from Allan Pease on the art of body language was an eye opener, Graeme Edwards from the Queensland Police showed us the importance of cyber security for while Adam Franklin showcased his guru credentials with a masterclass on social media marketing - a must for any broker looking to build their business. The headline act was Mr Mark Bouris of Yellow Brick Road and Apprentice Australia fame and he didn’t disappoint delivering his keynote in typical charismatic and confident style.   

Race to the finish

At our very own stand we hosted delegates who lined up against each other on our racing simulator. Things were competitive through the day but our clear winner (if not of an actual race) was Peter White of the FBAA!
