The 2 day workshop component of the SMART Retirement Mentoring Programme takes place on a Saturday and Sunday on dates as published from time to time on this site.
The days start at 9am and finish about 5pm with morning and afternoon tea as well as a lunch break.
Throughout the 2 days, participants will engage in activities and experiences which along with the presentations from experts in various fields will enable them to commence their Roadmap for Freedom book.
The 3 month programme is divided into 2 parts. The first being the 2 day workshop over a weekend and the second part is follow up over the next 3 months with experiences as identified by the participants in the workshop stage. These could include participation in one of their dreamlining wishes or learning a new skill, volunteering or even learning to play a musical instrument.
This along with an individual session to ensure each participant completes their Roadmap for Freedom book and is comfortable with their plan to their better later life will be part of the 3 month mentoring programme. We won’t leave you wondering what’s next!
