SURE: a new technique to ensure clients have understood your advice
We naturally ask the client if there is anything they didn´t understand and often, the client replies “No”. Or we ask if everything was clear and the client answers “Yes”. But can we rely on these answers as being an accurate reflection of whether the client truly has listened to and understood that advice? The answer is NO!! That is why, in this webinar, Jeff Heasman will outline his SURE technique for insurance and financial services professionals, based on concept checking, a method traditionally used in language teaching.

The cost of poor acoustics in building, industry & environment
Acoustic design is not something most people think about until a problem is identified. Errors in design, construction, or simply failure to consider acoustics can lead to annoyance, loss of privacy, and, in some cases, increased risk to health and safety. This webinar will address some of the common issues we investigate, with a particular focus on noise in the built environment.

Retirement is a major life transition. It is likely to last many years.
