“Excellent and very helpful presentation – thank you (sensitively handled)
We don’t talk enough about this”
“Very informative. Presented in a very comfortable, pleasant manner. Thanks”
“Very helpful indeed. A good mix of practical, emotional (and humorous) advice!”
“I found it very useful, but I still need to know more about financial matters (inheritance tax, lifetime gifts etc. – and the government doesn’t know either!!”
