After qualifying as a Financial Adviser in the UK, I moved to Australia approximately 7 years ago. Upon entering the Australian market I underwent re-training to establish myself with the required qualification in Financial Planning in Australia, culminating in the completion of all 8 Diplomas of Financial Planning. I have been fortunate to hold a variety of roles in Financial Planning which have allowed me to see the Industry in Australia from many different perspectives. My main focus for the last 5 years has been on Financial Planning Software, and the training of users ( I hold CertIV in Workplace Training and Assessment), and the customisation of this software to meet the needs of individual practices. I have also been involved in the innovation of processes to enable the financial planning practices to run smoother through the use of workflows.
