If so, come and listen to Stan Goss as he discusses the staggering reality of the new demographics of a population that is living longer than ever before. Every segment of our society will be affected by the changes coming our way. His message will not only provoke your thinking, but will provide bold and fresh ideas for positively and effectively dealing with these changes.
Come and learn as Stan discusses:
- The massive paradigm shift
- Debt and our dilemma

While his message is one which produces a "gee whiz, I didn’t know that!", it is also delivered with humor,
real life stories and inspirations and encouragement for people of all ages.
