Newsletter 2 - March 2023
PWFO is a members-benefit,designation-granting Association for Finance Professional serving Families and Private Clients. One of the benefits it provides to senior Members is assembling Thought Leaders with expertise in a specific domain of financial services. They publish articles to offer PWFO Members guidance and insight in their field of expertise.
The Thought Leaders came together to review the progress of the programme and concrete suggestions were put forward on how to get more engagement from the participants: a WhatsApp group and a LinkedIn group.
It was further suggested that we E-meet every quarter.
This month we welcome Denise Pitot as the newest member in our program. Watch out for her posts and articles on our platform.
Here is a short introduction of Denise:
Denise is an avid networker, having been introduced to the concept around 20 years ago through being a chairman of the local chamber, a founding member of a network and having volunteered in various positions of networking groups which have placed her in an ideal situation to be able to guide others on their network journey.
Denise is a mom of 3 children, grandmother of 1. She, her husband and then 5 year old daughter moved to Mauritius 5 years ago to enjoy an island lifestyle. In addition to the business network, they now also have a flourishing estate agency which enables them to assist people whether they are wanting to enter the business environment of Mauritius, or to enjoy the warm balmy waters and the island hospitality upon retirement.

How? History has taught us that many changes happened only when Citizens decided to do something about it: - Apartheid, Women's Right to Vote, Civil Rights and others."
