-By Sunél Veldtman Our first Encore workshop was a huge success given the positive response from attendees. We covered all aspects about planning for the second half of life, including emotional well-being, purpose and health and we took a thorough journey through the financial preparation for retirement.

We hope that the workshop contributed to new plans and dreams for many for the final stretch of their lives. I found Dr Motara’s presentation on holistic health and aging specifically enlightening. He highlighted the importance of holistic well being and our ability to control the aging process. He put the power of aging well in our own courts. His approach underlines our own thinking about the Encore years – that we need to plan for all aspects of our lives to be in balance.

Enough money is not enough. Many of the attendees have asked for the presentation slides. Click on the links below to read these - and feel free to share with any friends who may have missed out this year. We hope that you can all make it next year.
