Since retiring from corporate life he has developed his own property and buy-to-let business and runs courses on entrepreneurship.

The world has changed and so must you, says Steven Bedford -- so don’t delay, start creating some plans for your future


Over the past 50 years our world has changed enormously -- from the austerity and shortages of post World War life, through the marvels of the Industrial Age, which delivered wealth and opportunity to many of us. Now we live in the Information Age, where a bewildering range of goods and services are available to the whole population rather than a privileged few.
