OpenDoor has been busy on the conference circuit with one of our planners, Andrew Robards, speaking at an international gathering in Instanbul earlier this year.
You’d be mistaken for thinking it was just another financial pow-wow full of finance-related people.
The 2014 Turkey Clinical Conference, which looked at Updates in General Practice, was the first of what will be a regular series of international medical conferences. Andrew was keen to participate at the event, sharing his financial know-how with an audience of influential healthcare practitioners.
He presented two papers at the meeting based on the $10 tip concept, which is proving popular on our blog. The first presentation, entitled It’s how much we spend!, looked at the idea that it’s not how much you earn that makes you wealthy, but how much you spend.
Later in the five-day conference, Andrew spoke about the difference that $500 makes – how a regular savings plan of $500 can help pay off the home loan, make contributions into superannuation, and so on.
Conferences like this are a great way for our planners to share what they know but also meet experts and specialists from other fields and keep up-to-date on that particular industry’s news.
Other Australian presenters at the event included Dr Peter Grant who specialises in Emergency Medicine and Medico-Legal; Dr Philip Walkom, a Specialist Obstetrician and Gynaecologist; and Dr Jayne Antony, Paediatric Neurologist.
Following his two presentations, Andrew was invited to speak at October’s conference in the city of Siem Reap, Cambodia, home to the famous Angkor Wat temple complex.
