March Melbourne event an overwhelming success


Thank you to venue hosts PwC for their hospitality in putting together a very professional event on Tuesday 3rd March 2015. The just over 20 attendees enjoyed the views from their office in Southbank, Melbourne overlooking the city, and drinks and canapés for just over 20 attendees.

Also welcome to our new friends from the UK, Tameron McDougal and Christine Keen, bringing a truly international flavour to our forums. There was some fantastic networking and I’m sure there have been numerous coffee catch ups since the event.

Dale Hoy, InterRetire was the key note presenter and there was much interest not only for our globally mobile executives, but also as a potential strategy for inbound investors including Significant Investor Visa applicants.

Click here for post event article of highlights from the session, as well as link to the presentation slides, flyer and contact details for Dale as well as Joff Macleod, PwC Private Clients.
