Aspire Wealth Management Client Conference 24 February 2023

Following our move to new offices in Stillorgan we held a very successful client conference in the Westbury Hotel, Dublin City Centre with almost 100 people attending.

    The topics presented were:
  • Sustainable investing & impact in action
  • Financial planning and second life In retirement
  • The changing face of retirement.
The overall feedback was extremely positive and included comments such as:
We enjoyed Friday’s seminar very much and it gave us food for thought and our need to make a plan. We met some really lovely people in a similar situation as ourselves and it was lovely to discuss the ideas with them.
For many, the thoughts of listening to financial planning advice would have sent me off to sleep. But this morning's event was so well thought out, and the speakers so engaging that I found the morning very interesting and most worthwhile.
Thank you so much. We thoroughly enjoyed the presentations and found it both interesting and informative. We will schedule a follow up soon.
What I really liked was that nobody was trying to sell me anything.
The conference was excellent. We really enjoyed the presentations, really good balance, not all money focused.
A most educational morning in the Westbury - a simplified message of understanding the before, during and after that transition time of moving from a full-time role to the next phase of your life both mentally, emotionally and obviously financially - Thanks to all at Aspire Wealth Management team for organizing and inviting.
While those attending received information packs afterwards, copies of their presentations as well as a summary of their presentations are available immediately below:
