Al & The Individual Pension Plan (IQACO0315ILSCL000315) $ 110.00

This seminar is filled with technical details about the Individual Pension Plan (IPP) strategy. The aim of most participants taking this seminar would be to gain an understanding of what an IPP is, how the deductions are created, as well as a practical framework on how they work.

Most seminar participants will be advisors to clients looking at the IPP strategy. They will want to work with the seminar material to gain a comfort level with the topic so they can advise on the strategy.

For these reasons, I believe a creative approach to the material is to write it in a "story format". While the story-line is relatively thin, it will be developed to the extend to:

  • Hold the interest of the seminar participant so that the details communicated are conveyed in an easier to read format.
  • Offer role playing scenarios so the advisor can see how various professionals interact with clients of this topic.
  • Demonstrate a client's perspective on the strategy and the common objections that need to be overcome when communicating the strategy.
  • Identify with the seminar participant as they work to gain an understanding of the material. As the main character works his way through the material, so will the seminar participant.
