Read our Retirement Workshops feedback, endorsements or contact us for more information or to book a place at our one of our next retirement workshops. These pre-retirement workshops should be attended ideally between two to three years before your retirement date as this will give you an opportunity not only to work with all the material but to start your retirement plan and then review it a number of times before the actual date of your retirement. A significant benefit can be obtained by adequate pre-retirement planning and attention to the subject of the emotional impact and the preparation steps that can be taken.
