Having the right information is absolutely vital for professionals as is essential guides for senior people or those genuinely helping them, for the prevention of financial senior exploitation and fraud.
Innovative and strategic, Protecting Seniors Wealth has emerged as a leading company with an impeccable professional reputation for providing industry tailored presentations and reference material for the retirement demographic and industry sectors and provides a broad range of education, training, strategic consulting services and publications.
Founder and CEO
Over the past eight years, Anne McGowan as Chief Executive of Protecting Seniors Wealth, director, strategic consultant, author, training workshop facilitator and keynote speaker presentation presenter, brings specialised skills and expertise, along with her extensive knowledge gained over years of investigations into the growing unwanted trend of financial senior exploitation and working on programs for better solutions to improve outcomes.
Anne McGowan’s business, consulting and educator background began in banking, then for over a decade as a professional public relations consultant, establishing a successful public relations company consulting for corporations and high-level executives, and later utilising that extensive expertise in teaching adult business communications studies and course preparation.
Today, she’s actively involved in Protecting Seniors Wealth, a senior elder advocate, proud mother and married to a dedicated member of service organisation Rotary International.
Establishing a results-oriented dedicated resource that partners, collaborates and networks with industries, sourcing and investigating data and research and delivering training programs for clients, Anne strongly believes in the rights of seniors and elders, and highly commends the tireless efforts of people who dedicate their time to help them and all the service providers, in particular for seniors and elders and those who have difficulties speaking up for themselves.
Integrity AND Ethics Modality
Ethical behaviour tends to be good for business and involves demonstrating respect for key moral principles that include honesty, fairness, equality, dignity, diversity and individual rights.
Corporations prefer to maintain their clients for the long term, their business and investment deposits. Senior people prefer to maintain their right to choose, dignity and lifestyle. Focusing on protecting these rights, preventing or avoiding or effectively dealing with situations in the most efficient way possible is in everyone’s best interests.
Anne has been instrumental in Protecting Seniors Wealth’s ability to source and share key data examining the issue, new insights, impacts, growth rate, industry analysis, and how this will influence our future in business and people’s lives.
She was a featured keynote speaker and delivered training sessions and workshops for corporations, Continuing Professional Development training platforms, numerous financial adviser and professionals’ associations and seniors’ groups, and was invited to be an elder abuse committee member with a high-level financial services organisation, invited to attend Forums in Australia and the United States, and has prepared submissions for Elder Abuse Inquiries, the most recent being the Royal Commission into Aged Care.
The broad range of services are structured to help people and the corporations who assist seniors manage their financial affairs avoid or prevent wealth abuse.
Often referred to as senior or elder financial abuse, when Anne was first compelled to delve into the issue, after hearing extensively the real-life stories told by people who experienced it first-hand, it became obvious financial abuse leads to other forms of abuse, and the bar can be raised significantly towards prevention by gaining and sharing knowledge, research and data, system changes, and the delivery of very specific education and training.
