SimplyBiz academy boosts focus on paraplanner support

SimplyBiz’s New Model Business Academy (NMBA) has plans to ramp up paraplanner support in its aim to help members with continuous professional development (CPD).

Lee Travis (pictured), chief executive of the NMBA, is shifting the academy’s focus from helping firms prepare for the retail distribution review to supporting growth, professional development strategies, sustainability and evolving business models.

‘We’re looking to change our focus on paraplanners,’ he said. ’[They are] 12% of our membership and they play an important and influential role in firms.’

Travis said in the second half of 2013 the NMBA would organise more face-to-face events and webinars focused on paraplanners, which would count as CPD.

‘While we get more new members, we are expanding our scope…we want to have a role in developing more of a paraplanner community,’ he said.
