Bell Canada: Doctor Alan Roadburg has conducted Retirement Planning Seminars for Bell Canada Managers and their spouses with excellent results. Each candidate becomes actively involved in a learning process which results in clear picture of where they want to go and how they plan to get there. I highly recommend Doctor Roadburg’s Second Career Program to any prospective client. It has been very well researched, addresses the needs of employees and their spouses and achieves all of the stated instructional objectives
Assanate Wealth Management: We received good feedback from clients about how it got them to look at retirement in a completely different way. The workshop portion really got the clients brainstorming and we had quite a time getting them to stop sharing ideas! Your workshop is an excellent way of adding value to a relationship because it shows clients that you care about more than their portfolio. They leave armed with information and tools that can help them live life more abundantly.
Insurance Institute of Ontario: Thank you and your colleagues for presenting the recent pre- retirement planning seminar. Enclosed is a copy of the evaluation summary and the response was obviously favourable. I will be in touch sometime in the future to discuss offering to our industry at large.
Ming & Associates Financial Consultants: We are writing to let you know of the success we’ve had in partnering with doctor Alan Roadburg in our recent lifestyle planning seminar. Dr. Roadburg enlightened everyone with his views on retirement. Approximately 100 people attended, and the feedback provided proved that it was an evening enjoyed by all.
Allen Bradley: Everyone who attended the workshop felt they had received a great deal of help in planning the lifestyle aspects of their forthcoming retirement. As one of the attendees put it, “The course was enlightening and instructive and gave me an insight into things I was not aware of”. The management of Allen Bradley felt the course was both well-prepared and well-presented. As you know, we wanted a program that would be meaningful for personnel from different income levels. The Second Career Program was exactly what we were looking for.
Canadian Tire Corporation: After having you go through your program with our pre-retirement employees, I highly recommend the programs of the Second Career Program to prospective clients. They are well researched, very much to the point, and without any doubt they achieve their stated objectives. Our Pre-retirement workshops have all been excellent. They covered exactly the right topics, were reassuring and, with professional presentation, were most interesting and beneficial. In contrast to lectures on matters related to “growing old”, our people appreciated the way you helped them to see retirement as an exciting new career. Your firm sets new standards in retirement education and we are pleased to be in the vanguard of such an enlightened concept.
Chesebrough Ponds (Canada) Inc. This is a brief note of thank you for your fine two-day early retirement Program that you delivered to our early retiree groups. From general feedback from each of the two groups, the program was helpful and interesting. Certainly, as a company we found your approach of considering retirement as a second career to be very refreshing and a key to smoothing the retirement way for any potential retiree. Although cause and effect are difficult to determine, we found our Early Retirement program to have resulted in 70% of employees selecting retirement, against a maximum expected 40 – 50%. I do believe that your seminar certainly contributed to that success. Alan, I thank you again for all the help received from you and your associates and wish you well in the future.
Corning Canada: In the course of my business career, I have had the opportunity to attend many “Training” seminars. I must say I found your course most useful and I rate it high up on my list. I saw it as an exchange of very useful information that had practical value.
Ortho Pharmaceutical (Canada) Ltd: I am writing to thank you and your staff for the well received retirement planning seminar. All the responses were very positive to all phases of the seminar and were very happy with your service. We wish you continued success with your Second Career training program and hope to utilize your services again in the future.
Lakeshore General Hospital: As you know, our employees who participated ln the workshop felt it was a most informative and interesting two days. From the feedback, it was noted that retirement with planning, will provide stimulation as well as security. It has been a pleasure collaborating with you on this successful project and I hope another workshop will be organized in the near future.
Sunnybrook Health Science Centre: The participants enjoyed your approach to this phase in their lives. For some, retirement is the end of a good part of their lives, having worked at the hospital in excess of twenty-five years and they look to retirement with trepidation; for others, who have planned for retirement and cannot wait for the day, it is a time to move on to a new life. Your course presents alternatives for consideration to either group. For both sessions, the participants rated the workshop exceptionally high. Additionally, and to your credit, several employees who had not attended the most recent workshop commented that they had heard the presentation was interesting and beneficial and were sorry they had missed it.
The Corporation of the City of Brampton: We believe that the workshop successfully brought a new and different perspective to the attendees’ views on retirement and gave them both immediate and longer term benefits that should culminate in the practical application of the ideas and information that was presented. From a personal perspective, I thoroughly enjoyed the Second Career Program and 6recommend this program as a valuable tool for any person or organization that has a genuine interest in promoting the well being of their employees.
Northumberland and Newcastle Board of Education: It was a pleasure for my wife and I to attend your full-day seminar on career Planning After Retirement. As this significant change in lifestyle rapidly approaches with all its implications, the opportunity to take a guided tour through some of the related dimensions of such a decision was indeed helpful and comforting. Your background, manner and material all contributed to a very insightful day. How quickly it passed! Good luck in your efforts to interest others in similar circumstances to participate and benefit from your program.
Ontario Ministry of Community and Social Services: I would like to express my thanks for presenting an excellent workshop to our staff. The written evaluations were excellent and l have received good verbal feedback from the participants. The fact that everybody walked away with their own personal profile/workbook, seemed to be very much appreciated by the staff. I would not hesitate to recommend this program to any organization that is interested in providing their staff with an opportunity to reflect upon their needs and how to meet those needs in retirement.
Ontario Ministry of Industry, Trade and Technology: The sessions were well delivered, fast moving, responsive and most important of all, appropriate. The workbook is excellent, and our participants have commented that it is easy to follow and contains valuable information. The Lifestyle segment, although different from other retirement programs, is most helpful in preparing people for retirement. It gives the participants the opportunity to assess their retirement plans in an objective and easy to follow manner. In fact, the only criticism we have encountered is that people wish they had had this course sooner. In short, I recommend the Second Career Program to any prospective clients.
Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources: The seminar was successful and well received. I personally thought every aspect was beneficial; your knowledge, experiences and delivery cannot be improved upon. All this was also reflected on the assessment sheets. I should also mention that the comments which most commonly appeared were that some participants felt the career change workshop was extremely helpful for themselves as well as something they may wish to pass on to their children and that this course should be given to people in their 20’s and 30’s.
Ontario Ministry of Transportation: As Ministry coordinator, corporate Education, I arrange for many vendored programs, among them Pre-Retirement. We use Dr. Alan Roadburg of Second Career Program and appreciate working together with him to achieve program success. He has conducted a number of Pre-Retirement workshops for us over the past three years. We have been very pleased with the results of the programs, based on very positive participant evaluations and personal feedback. He brings direct experience and credibility to the program, along with an enthusiastic and personable approach. The quality of the content and delivery of these programs is very important to the Ministry- reflecting our organizational values and caring for staff. We feel Dr. Roadburg’s program reflects the high quality that we require and pleased to recommend his services to other interested parties.
