POSITIONING YOUR BUSINESS TO THRIVE IN THE SOCIAL CURRENCY CONSUMER REVOLUTION

In her presentation the founder and managing director or Astute Ability Finance Group, Mhairi MacLeod will share the community programs, concepts and online engagement methods that have positioned her award-winning business as one of the nation’s most socially responsible finance brokerages.

In a rapidly changing world consumers are becoming increasingly aware of their impact when purchasing. The rise of conscious consumerism is upon us and businesses that ignore social responsibility and the power consumers have to drive change do so at their own peril.

To remain relevant the finance industry must prepare for a future of ethically driven Generation Z (1995-2009) consumers.

More than any prior generation Gen Z seek to align their purchasing behaviour with their values. When deciding who they want to deal with, they look for a business who considers and addresses the social and environmental impact of their products, services, and decisions.

COMMERCIAL FINANCE - THE CHANGING LANDSCAPE

The commercial finance market stands at around $380 billion, and research has shown that GDP increases four times for every $ invested by a business, so it is an integral part of the Australian economy.

 

David will discuss the commercial finance market, who are the players, and the requirements to operate in a non-regulated industry. Commercial equipment finance brokers account for 72% of new business sourced, so play an important role in this process. How do you become a commercial broker, and what are the requirements to operate in the greatest industry no one has heard of!

 

Commercial finance is an enabler, allowing business to grow and prosper. Hear how this is achieved whilst navigating the political and financial landscape.
