Bond boasts executive education excellence

Written on the 5 March 2009

 

BOND University will host a series of seminars set to educate attendees about understanding the risks and rewards of wealth management.
Melinda Muir, director at the Bond University centre of executive education, says executives will benefit greatly from the seminars.
“Executives are increasingly under pressure to ensure that their business is not only able to survive but to prosper in today’s volatile markets. This means responding quickly to threats and out-manoeuvring rivals. At the same time, they are under increasing pressure to cut costs by reducing or even eliminating the training and development budgets necessary to achieve success,” says Muir.
“Corporate education is often the first area to go during tough economic times, because return on investment can take some time to quantify. Yet, in difficult economic times, the need for maximum productivity is more important than ever. Well-equipped, well-trained and well- motivated staff are critical to a company’s survival.”
The first of the three-part seminar series will discuss mastering wealth creation and include topics such as wealth creation strategies, including diversification and contrarian investing.
The seminars will be presented by Stuart McAuliffe who specialises in finance and risk management. McAuliffe is the national advisor for Colonial First State Property Management. 
Muir explains that the topic of wealth management has grown in popularity recently but the intricacies of the topic will be revealed during the seminars.
“It goes well beyond recommending shares or investments. Objective of the workshops is to demystify what can be a bewildering area and help participants understand the risks and rewards associated with active wealth management and the trends that are shaping the wealth management landscape,” she says.
