Lime to host forums for mortgage principals

Tenet’s Lifetime Insurance Mortgage Experts network is kicking off a calendar of business forums for principals of mortgage firms.

The Lime events will give principals the chance to meet regionally on a bi-monthly basis, with presentations from key lenders and providers.

The sessions will be following by internal training and discussions on best practice, with the change for principals to feed back on proposed Lime initiatives, influencing future projects.

The forums begin on February 27 in Garforth, Leeds and February 28 at the Hilton Metropole, London.

Tenet group distribution and development director Keith Richards says: “Our events programme for 2008 focuses on interaction, best practice sharing and networking as well as training.

“For sole practitioners in particular, it can be quite a solitary working life! By providing principals with their own events, Lime is facilitating a regular opportunity for them to get together and share ideas and experiences, as well as have input into future network initiatives.”
