The Women's International Networking (WIN) Global Leadership conference in Rome to focus on career and business development will also include workshops on leadership, getting on to a company board as well as achieving financial success.
Retirement planning should feature high on the agenda of expat businesswomen working or living internationally, particularly where they have been doing so for a number of years, according to expat specialist financial advisers, Guardian Wealth Management (GWM).
"Job changes, uncertainties of short-term contracts, moving to different countries and career breaks can all affect the flow of savings into retirement schemes and a review of pensions and other retirement options should be carried out on a regular basis," says Gavin Pluck, European Director at GWM.
GWM will be pointing out the pitfalls around retirement planning for international businesswomen as one of the topics it covers in its dedicated seminar at the Women’s International Networking (WIN) global leadership conference which takes place in Rome, Italy, from 5-8 October.
Pluck, who will present the workshop, explains: “The workshop will examine these and a range of other fundamental issues for expat women, as well as address some of the solutions to them. The session is very practical and gives clear and honest financial advice. It is designed to deliver helpful content in a straightforward, jargon-free manner that WIN delegates can easily access so they take away something useful at the end.”
WIN was founded as a place where women from all over the world could develop their careers, their business acumen, their contacts and their lives, and the conference is now in its 14th year, attracting an audience of over 1000 women from 70 countries.
The conference hosts 30 world-class experts talking on issues such as economics, politics, technology, society, environment, humanity and future, life and work. In addition, there are 42 workshops run throughout the event, designed to help develop, empower and inspire the attendees to achieve their objectives in their professional and personal life.
GWM has conducted financial workshops and seminars for many International Women’s clubs and associations around the globe. In March, GWM participated in a localised WIN conference in Lausanne, Switzerland, entitled ‘Women in Leadership: The Competitive Edge’. This event celebrated the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day and was a joint venture between the international business school IMD and WIN.
