The employing agency or organization benefits from these presentations, by creating goodwill and strengthening morale among its employees. The participants benefit from the knowledge they gain and the financial experts benefit by having the opportunity to give something back to the community in which they serve. While the workshop presenters are financial professionals, IFA webinars and workshops are not sales events. The purpose of the presentation is to provide valuable financial information to the participants that attend, and no specific products or companies are endorsed.
