Branch Manager Bootcamp- Summer Series
Four-Part Next Generation Branch Manager Training
Virtual bootcamp sessions happen once per month from May through August.
What does your branch have that alternative branch channels such as mobile banking don’t? People to readily serve its customers!
As the number of branch transactions continues to fall, community financial institutions must reassess the branch manager role. They must invest in providing managers the right people, tools, client goals, and sales goals, then step back and watch the results become a dynamic source of profitability.
This exciting, four-part program series focuses on the next generation bank manager who will lead vital bank transformation, transitioning to client relationship management and creating an active advisory environment for the client to achieve financial goals.
