“The great accomplishments of man have resulted in the transmission of ideas and enthusiasm” Thomas J Watson (founder of IBM – first personal computer – the 5150 – launched 12/8/1981

That led to a business seminar…

Alex Johnston and Mike Haigh from Domus Financial delivered a tremendous seminar on Cash/Savings Management – amid the confusion in the market place on how your bank accounts work (or should work!) as highlighted in the clip that Alex showed of BBC Breakfast with Paul Lewis.  Alex covered how you can make your money work harder for you without the need to invest in property, stocks or shares – demonstrated this with some real examples of people they have helped – shared the 6 principles of saving – talked about the FSCS – and showed the unique tool they use….
