FMP have been working with Changing Gears for the past 5 years. Expertly led by Wayne Bishop we have been able to build a trusting and sharing relationship with our employees, while developing strategies for providing them with options for a dignified exit from the workforce. By giving them the skills and knowledge to plan for the future and supporting them along the way, we are now in a position where our employees are sharing their retirement plans with us well in advance.

Over the past few years, we have run a number of Changing Gears programs with overwhelmingly positive feedback from participants. Central to the feedback has been the personalised and professional advice provided by Wayne and the team and the holistic approach that encompasses not only financial but also lifestyle factors.
