“The trustee training course lecturers' explanations and willingness to answer questions were most valuable - even silly ones - although I have learnt there are no 'silly questions' that trustees should ask.”
“Wish I'd had the opportunity to do the Trustee training course sooner! ”
“So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.”
“Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.”
“Excellent communication - the trustee training course facilitators were clearly knowledgeable and very experienced in their field and able to convey concept and information in a way I was able to understand. ”
“The trustee training course covered a wide variety of subjects which gives a good basis for future discussion and decision making during trustee meetings.”

Colin started his pensions career in 1975 in consultancy with Leslie & Godwin. He assisted scheme managers transition schemes from old to new code and contracted schemes out of the State Earnings Related Pension Scheme.
In 1979, he moved to Hogg Robinson Benefit Consultants. Here he undertook special pension scheme merger projects and was responsible for helping sponsors implement scheme changes to DB pension schemes.
