Small Business Banker Development Program (SBBDP)

Small business owners want more than checking accounts and loans from their bank; they want business-savvy bankers who understand their business and can make recommendations to help them be more efficient with their time and money. For the SBBDP, the UBA has teamed with three national small business-banking experts to develop this six-session program to help Utah bankers aggressively pursue this profitable market segment and serve small businesses effectively.

The SBBDP features time-tested skills that provide bankers with the ability to capture, and keep, a business owner’s loyalty and trust. This program is designed for branch managers, small business bankers, relationship managers, business development officers, and any banker who works with small businesses. Credit administrators who analyze and approve these deals would also benefit.
