Pioneer announces autumn seminars

Pioneer Friendly Society has announced a series of training and development seminars for brokers across the UK this autumn.

The seminars will tackle industry issues, including the forthcoming new deal for welfare, and other important topics such as the importance of income protection within an adviser’s overall TCF strategy.

Pioneer says over 1200 delegates have attended seminars already this year and feedback from advisers has been extremely positive.

Sales and marketing director Paul Wood says Pioneer is looking to help advisers increase their income protection sales.

He says: “We have had a great response to the seminars and are delighted by the number of brokers who have subsequently contacted us for corporate training sessions.

“Our roadshows have shown us that current income protection product design across the industry isn’t working, consistently disappointing sales figures tell us as much.”

Advisers can register for the autumn seminars online at www.pioneer-friendly.co.uk or by calling 01225 895110.
