Technology and Wills – The Dawn of a New Era
This webinar will be hosted by industry experts in estate planning, Kimberley Martin, Director at Worrall Moss Martin Lawyers, and Adam Steen, Professor of Practice, Deakin Business School.

You'll have the opportunity to ask questions about the webinar topic and about our financial planning course offerings. This webinar will also give you the opportunity to receive Continuing Professional Development (CPD), as questions will be sent to you after the webinar.

Specifically, the webinar will also cover:
