For Commercial Credit & Lending Staff, Senior and Executive Managers, and Board Members
This seminar is a starting point for commercial lending, credit, and support teams as they work to build an efficient and profitable underwriting function, effective and productive underwriting process, and greater and faster deal productivity.
Wednesday, October 5
01:00pm – 03:00pm EST
Virtual (Video) Event
It is not unusual to hear commercial lending organizations talk about profitability of their credit underwriting teams and operations. When they do, however, the tendency is i) to focus on some segments of costs but not key relevant costs and ii) to try to reduce costs without taking opportunity costs into account or focusing on productive cost reduction (cost reduction for the sake of cost reduction, but not for sustainable growth).
In the current times of constrained underwriting resources, shortage of quality talent, significant technology investment needs, and other challenges, the last things credit and lending managers have time to worry about are profitable operations, greatest value-add of their team members, highest ROI, and most effective and efficient credit & lending operations.
You will often hear: “Do you want us to get deals done OR do you want to worry about the greatest value-add of our team members and their profitability?”
Yet, the most successful commercial lending teams and organizations know that the highest and best use of their team members’ time is what powers their ability to produce more deals, in shorter time, with greatest efficiencies and effectiveness, and highest employee work satisfaction.
Where do you start? DNB Advisory’s seminar, What Every Commercial Lending Professional Has To Know, is that critical starting point for commercial lending teams, their managers, and even board members.
- Desire to be open-minded in objectively evaluating and challenging how you do business today
- Willingness to explore and understand how your daily behaviors and bad habits convert into cost, revenue and profit, and opportunity impact to your team and overall organization
- Open-mindedness to weave focus on cost, revenue and profit, and opportunity cost into your team’s daily operation

Out of all training I attended during my banking career, this one is at the top of my list
A really thought provoking seminar
I found the seminar to be job-specific and plan to apply some of the principals or techniques learned to my job. Your presentation skills were excellent and kept the subject very interesting. I also appreciated your facilitation of the participants’ discussion.
Tremendous amount of actionable knowledge
