Read below what recent participants have to say about this exciting programme for Trustees.
“… one of the great benefits of course participation was to meet with likeminded trustees. The course has married the concepts of theory and practice well and the approach involves a good deal of interaction and class participation. The long term benefit of undertaking this course is that I now have a set of guiding principles that I can bring to my role”. Declan Morris is a lay trustee of the Veritas Company Ltd – DC Scheme
“The IIPM Law and Governance Programme for Trustees certainly fits the bill for me. The quality of the presentations delivered by highly experienced professionals was exceptional. The lively discussions and debates between the participants coming from many different backgrounds was an unexpected benefit….. It certainly satisfied my need for a more in depth study of the issues facing trustees and I would strongly recommend it” Maurice Johnston is Director of Haven Financial Consulting Ltd.
“I completed the IIPM Law & Governance for Trustees course in March/April 2018 and found the presentations to be informative and well delivered, the content to be challenging and entire to be very interesting, helpful and practical. All of the participants, whether from the pensions industry, advisors or trustees, were committed and engaged to such an extent that the wide ranging interaction and collaboration continued beyond the lectures into the group assignment, which was as a result a particular pleasure to work on. I can honestly say that the IIPM Law & Governance for Trustees is the best course that I have been on since leaving college; it is my privilege to recommend it to anyone who is or is to become a pension scheme trustee and to anyone who works with trustees. Pension schemes will certainly be stronger where trustees have the knowledge that this course delivers” Graham L. Dawson is Chief Operations Officer of William Fry
