Securing a rosier future with My Paper

A 150-strong audience attended the 4th My Paper Advance Seminar sponsored by Manulife on July 19 at SMU auditorium for an enriching half-day programme to learn more about the strategies for a rosier future.

The panel of experts consisted of Mr Daniel Yun, a filmmaker and life coach who has incorporated the three acts of storytelling into life coaching and taught the crowd to discover how learning from their past can impact their future endeavours by giving examples from his filmmaking profession.

Ms Sarah Lee, a financial planner from Manulife (Singapore), shared tips on wealth & risk management and the importance of various health protection policies.

The seminar also featured two other speakers, Dr Brian Khoo, a consultant cardiologist, who gave insights into the different treatments for heart-related diseases, and Mr Adrian Lau, a senior psychologist, who gave a light-hearted talk on how to manage the daily stresses to lead a happier life.

Administrative assistant Sim Chai Hoon said that the talk had inspired her to look into financial planning. “It’s informative because I’m not very sure about all the insurance schemes,” she said.

Over 96 per cent of the attendees rated the seminar as good or excellent. Over 97 per cent said they would participate in such a seminar again.

Ms Cindy Cheng, vice-president, head of marketing & client centricity, Manulife (Singapore), said: “Manulife aims to generate more awareness and educate Singaporeans on retirement planning. The My Paper Advance Series 2014 provides a good platform to achieve our goal as it allows us to impart our knowledge in retirement planning to Singaporeans.”
