About us

Beat the Pensions Crisis grew out of the FT book by Brian Wood and Claire Brinn – more about them below. The site starts out as a set of valuable articles, blogs and links all designed to help people get a hold of their own pension crisis and take steps towards a better retirement.

The enterprise is a collaboration – a joint venture between Telos Solutions and Marketing Edge with web strategy and build from mark-making* and  media relations from Linstock Communications

As more people engage through the site it will become a central place to share views and experiences – the first point of reference for anyone thinking about their future. Over time, most of what you see here will be provided by those using the site.

So for once, About us is really About you..
