The key themes of the presentation were:

• What is lasting power of attorney?

• What is enduring power of attorney?

• Is it necessary to have an enduring power of attorney and a lasting power of attorney?

• How do I put lasting power of attorney in place?

• How much will it cost and who/how do I choose my attorneys?
