Garry, a member of the Regional Industry Leaders Program – Financial Advisors Group, was invited to participate in a group presentation on the importance of starting good financial management at an early age to help young students get a good ‘financial’ start.
During the 1 hour presentation to a group 0f 150 Year 12 students, it left quite an impression, and the ‘valuable lessons’ imparted upon the students made the local news, and was featured on Channel Seven News.
