Early Registration EndsJuly 19, 2022

With reduced in-branch transactions and customer visits and rapidly progressing technology, traditional retail banking functions are becoming obsolete. No longer can a front-line team member say: “It’s not my job!” The front-line banking team is shifting from traditional positions (tellers, new account representatives, financial service representatives, etc.) to a multi-tasking, “universal” banker role. Today’s bank customer base is shifting from the traditional, visit the bank twice a week model to a quick response, electronic banking-based relationship model.

This two-day certification program focuses on the essentials for today’s Universal Banker by providing exceptional service, making referrals, and building profitable relationships. The program is packaged with checklists, job aids, examples, and real-world situations. Attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion.

• Understanding the changing role of retail banking
• Defining and developing the universal banker
• Professionalism for today’s bankers
• Speaking the customer language—communicating for results
• Becoming the one source for the exceptional customer experience
• Moving from order taker to relationship banker
