Wednesday, 11 November 2020
12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
    • Alison Cooper, Director, ACT One Training Services Ltd

Timed to coincide with Talk Money Week, the annual campaign to get the nation talking about money, our second webinar by Alison Cooper is aimed specifically at young professionals within our industry, but is available to all CII/PFS members who feel that the content may be of benefit to them.

In these unprecedented times, this free, 1.5 hour webinar will provide an opportunity for young professionals to focus on their career journey and move towards their own financial resilience.

It will highlight ways to improve financial resilience and, though insights and discussion, allow participants to feel more comfortable talking about money.
