Mark S. Mandula, Principal of United Capital Funding Corp recently spoke as an invited keynote Speaker at “Successfully Developing and Selling Factoring Products and Services” ; held at the SAS Radisson Hotel, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, May 29/30th, 2008.
“We believe it is very important to make available to factoring firms like ours globally some of the marketing tools we have found successful in the United States,” commented Mandula. “As the only speaker invited from the United States at the Conference, my presentation was a unique opportunity to educate other industry CEO from firms based in Asia, Africa, Australia and Europe about the Accounts Receivable factoring and management industry in the United States, and how to profitably market factoring services in an ever changing environment.”
As the Conference organizers Marcus Evans noted, “The factoring industry has grown steadily in the last few years. In spite of this rapid expansion, there are still unexploited areas for further growth. Particularly, future business lies in developing innovative paperless products, adopting well established asset based lending solutions from the Anglo-Saxon markets and increasing Internet imbedded electronic and reserve factoring product offerings.”
The Global Conference, organized by Marcus Evans (Czech Republic) Ltd., included leading managing directors, CEOs, Presidents, International Managers and Directors from Business Finance Companies, Factoring Companies, Banks, Accountancy Firm and Intermediaries, Corporate Recovery Advisors, Law Firms and Asset Based Financiers.
Mandula’s presentation was entitled “Profitable Marketing of Factoring Services in an ever Changing Environment. Other speakers and attendees included global leaders from India, United Kingdom, Belgium, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Turkey, Czech Republic, Russia, Ukraine, and United Arab Emirates.
