Sesame is offering a range of business planning tools to enable members to imp-rove the way they run their practices.
The mega-network is sending all members a series of eight CD-Roms which address general business skills relevant to financial advisers.
The programs – offered in parallel with more traditional training and competence material – cover marketing, business continuity management, advice process and selling skills from the perspective of both the sole trader and multi-adviser businesses.
The distance learning tools, developed after independent research of Sesame members, also cover how to develop a fee-based proposition in your firm, personal development, business planning and technology issues.
Sesame will also be running a series of master classes throughout July, with the consultants who developed the programs giving advice on how to develop your business.
Sesame commercial director Martin Davis says: “We are trying to build the concept of developing advisers' general education and not just dealing with the training and competence side. This non-obligatory professional improvement will enable advisers to run their businesses in a more businesslike way.”
