What I really miss from the "full" package of this symposium program is the presentation about health and life insurances (and I hope you won`t find me too sarcastic). I think in our modern age people our more concerned about the "material side" of their healthcare. As from the experience of my clients, who are leading now a more relaxed lifestyle as they have a satisfying life insurance, I suggest a debate on this topic. You can find more information at this life insurance in Canada website.
