In a sector first, the MFAA, CPA Australia and AFA (Association of Financial Advisers) are joining forces to run the Young Professionals of Finance event.

Sponsored by Kaplan Professional, the event brings together young mortgage and finance brokers, accountants and financial advisers to network with their peers from other finance sectors, build valuable professional and referral relationships, share information and experiences and to think differently.

"This will be the second young professional's event held in partnership with NSW's CPA Australia. Our first event last year was a great success, but we wanted to make it even better this time, so have invited the AFA young professionals along too," said Chris Hamilton, the MFAA Marketing Manager.

Guest speaker for the evening is Roh Singh, founder and CEO of Populis – a people and performance company specialising in leadership diagnostics, performance strategies and mindset mastery. Roh has held regional and global executive roles at blue chip companies like Telstra, Hutchison 3 and Blackberry and has led start-up businesses and global multinationals to market dominance.

The event will be held on Thursday, 21 March in Sydney. It's currently a sell-out but MFAA members have the opportunity to register on the waiting list here. MFAA members: $37 (incl GST), non-members: $47 (incl GST).
