Business Development Skills

All financial institutions want a plan in place that ensures growth. Since the caveman bankers lived off of location and credibility, that’s history. This online seminar teaches those charged with business development responsibilities the primary skills, thought processes and behaviors necessary to expand relationships and to excel at client acquisition. Business development isn't about luck or magic. It's not about being pushy. It's about following a process, it's about having a plan, and becoming deliberate and on purpose when it comes to exploring and acquiring new business.
