Being involved in the programme was a great opportunity to step back from my daily role and it afforded me the chance to look at my own job role in a fresh way. The programme, while challenging in many respects, was extremely worthwhile as it has improved my overall technical capability in dealing with clients. It has offered me the opportunity to think differently and it has enhanced my ability to bring more value to all interactions that I have with clients. Completion of the programme has also allowed me to sit the Certified Financial Planning exam and to become a Certified Financial Planner professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending this programme to others. 4

5 The School of Professional Finance Marie Bradley, Bradley Tax Consulting Pension planning and personal financial planning form a big part of my work, and I decided to undertake the Graduate Diploma in Financial Planning to improve my knowledge and skills in this area. I really enjoyed using the skills acquired to complete case studies - the facts of which were based on real life scenarios - which have relevance to my day to day role. I also benefitted from completing class assignments on issues relevant to the current global economic environment. As a tax adviser my service offering has been enhanced arising from the knowledge acquired by participating in the programme. Liam Mc Grory, Omac Life & Pensions Ltd I undertook the Graduate Diploma in Financial Planning to increase my knowledge and understanding of personal financial planning and to be in a better position to offer a more detailed service to clients. The modules are very relevant and I enjoyed attending lectures, working in project groups, researching product design and construction and working on case studies. This programme has provided me with the professional skill set to provide clients with the best possible service and the confidence to deliver that service in a structured manner. I would recommend this programme to anyone who provides, or would like to provide a holistic personal financial planning service to clients. 5
