Michael established his practice in August 1999 after almost twelve years of teaching. Education was a useful grounding for Michael’s move into the Advice arena as he aims to educate his clients to the point where they can make informed decisions. As for the whole team at Strategic Planning Solutions, Michael is passionate about helping people. Apart from merely gathering financial facts about his clients, Michael places a key emphasis on what is of central importance in his client’s lives. This includes looking outside the square and finding out about key relationships, interests, attitudes and opinions – knowledge of which are important factors in crafting a uniquely tailored solution for the clients of Strategic Planning Solutions. It’s all about “Planning for Life”, both from a financial and lifestyle perspective as the former enables the latter.
