Thinking for the Future – Investing for yourself and your family

Jun 22, 2021 | General Financial Planning News

Personal Trust is pleased to invite you to a webinar hosted by Chantell Ilbury on Tuesday, 29th June.

Chantell is a renowned strategist, facilitator, speaker, best-selling business author and founding partner of Mindofafox. She will be talking on the topic of Thinking for the Future – Investing for yourself and your family.

If there’s one thing the past 18 months has taught us, it’s just how uncertain the future can be, and how forces beyond our control can disrupt even the best-made plans. Decision making in the face of  such uncertainty requires a specific way of thinking about the future – one that embraces the very uncertainties that throw standard approaches to decision making into disarray, and which encourages agility and adaptability in decision making. This is where scenarios come in; and their use is probably never as crucial as when making strategic decisions about investing in yourself and your family; i.e. decisions about your direction. This is as true for a child choosing subjects for their final years in high school, or choosing what they want to do after school; as it is for decisions about changing jobs, or moving – whether it be within the country or overseas.
In this talk, Chantell will cover the dynamics shaping potential global futures, and then focus on the scenarios specific for South Africa, exploring issues around security, economic growth, governance, education, and opportunities in the work place; and then present a simple, but more effective, framework for thinking about your future.

Please join us for this informative webinar.
Date: Tuesday, 29th June
Time: 10.30am. The talk will last approximately 1 hour.
