Frequently Asked Questions

HOW LONG WILL THE SEMINARS AND PANELS BE?

In order to get the most out of the time spent with our experts and panelists, we have allotted 90 minutes for these events. Some may run longer, depending on the subject material and the depth of the product. Every session includes time to address questions from attendees. We begin promptly at 1:30 PM and finish no later than 3:15 PM.

 

IS THERE A COST TO THE EVENTS?

The Empowered Seniors Series is a community service, and as such, there is no charge so ALL seniors are able to attend regardless of their financial situation. Our speakers and panelists have donated their time to ensure attendees have access to relevant and current information. Everyone involved - our hosts, our moderators, and Educational Partners - all have strong convictions about ensuring people are educated, empowered, and equipped as they prepare for late-life issues.

 

CAN I ATTEND IF I'M NOT A SENIOR?

We keep our seminars open to anyone who believes the information would be valuable to them. If you are not a senior, but you are seeking information to advise someone who is, please join us.

 

CAN ATTENDEES ASK QUESTIONS?

Of course! A key part of a successful information session is helping you to get your questions answered. Many of your questions will likely be answered throughout the discussion, but you will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end. We do request that if you have a specific question that is personal in nature (i.e., can't be generalized to the group) that you ask us when the seminar is over.

 

WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS AND CAN'T MAKE IT TO THE SEMINAR?

Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have about the seminar topic. We also encourage you to contact us with your questions about downsizing, later-in-life moves, and senior living options.

 

IS ANYONE GOING TO TRY TO SELL ME SOMETHING?

Absolutely not. These sessions are for learning, not selling. You will have an opportunity to get to know the host and panelists, and you can decide for yourself if you wish to request their services or products. Presenters and speakers may have materials available for you to take home, but it's your choice whether or not to take them.

 

CAN I REQUEST A TOPIC FOR THE NEXT SEMINAR?

We encourage you to do so. We want to ensure the Empowered Seniors Series is a meaningful and relevant experience, so we welcome your suggestions and ideas.

 

CAN I ATTEND FOR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PURPOSES?

These events are not designed for business professionals. We do offer Educational Partner opportunities. Contact us for more information.

Testimonials

  Marion had completed a number of sales in our community -- and she had worked very hard to have a professional and supportive presence there. When we first contacted Marion, we were a long time away from wanting to/being able to take action. She worked with us throughout this period and provided very helpful market research. along with specific information about prospective properties for us once we were ready to sell. The production of sales material on our home was creative and impressive. She was able to capture its special features, and showcased beautifully the expansiveness of the property. We enjoyed working with Marion. She was patient and supportive and understood that the second half of our initiative (the purchase) was just as important as the first. Thank you, Marion.
