  • Pension Accounting Deficit or Surplus? Why it's irrelevant?
    Pension Accounting Deficit or Surplus? Why it's irrelevant?
    Richard Farr - Managing Director Jun 18 2019 8:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Brief description of the webinar:
    The calculation of the true pension deficit is not straightforward and is certainly not the one that regularly appears in the accounts. There are a number of different approaches and whichever approach you choose will give you a different pension risk perspective. What we can say, with regard to pensions, is that your company accounts, do not give a true and fair view.
    Warning: This is not an accounting webinar. We will demonstrate why corporate accounts are misleading and what the real question to ask should be - Is the covenant strong enough to underwrite the risk? By listening to this webinar and understanding the integration between covenant, funding and investment, companies may better prepare themselves for inevitable storms ahead.
    Who should attend:
    Chairman/Chairperson
    CEO
    CFO
    FD
    NED
    Head of Audit/Risk/Compliance
    *that have defined benefit pension schemes or are contemplating becoming one of the above
    What are the benefits:
    1. To better understand your actual defined benefit (DB) pension risk
    2. To be able to challenge your current pension advisors
    3. To be able to ask for more relevant information and ask the right questions
    4. Drive forward a better pension risk management agenda from a C suite perspective
    What is the opportunity:
    Have better transparency of the underlying issues; a firm grasp of your pension risk obligations; and be better prepared for risks going forward

    Reasons to Attend:

    But that’s just nonsense.

    And - contrary to popular belief - prospects aren’t sitting in darkened rooms trying to invent new fiendish ways to stop you from selling your stuff.
    If people regularly tell you;

    • that you’re too expensive - or
    • that they’re already happy with their current supplier – or
    • they’ve had problems with your company in the past - or
    • your lead time is too long

    Then you need to jump on to this webinar so that I can share with you how to overcome every single objection that you’ll ever hear.

    Key Takeaways

    Everyone who attends will walk away with this tool box of sales gold;

    • How to overcome every genuine sales objection – including those based on price
    • The names of the four headline objection types and the silver bullet that takes each one of them down
    • The three reasons that salespeople fail to overcome the most difficult customer objections – and what to do about them
