Just to correct your impression of my suggestion. I am suggesting that the financial planning profession does the spruiking to promote the profession and its value to helping people through their lives. This is what the other professions do during O week. The profession has a lot of ground to recover from a number of inquiries.

The Federal Government does not see that it owes the financial planning industry any favours as it sees the industry left it high and dry as the bad behaviours have be illuminated. The Government knows there's more to come despite sports rorts taking the heat away from the industry for the moment.

As for the people leaving the industry/profession, let them leave. But we need people coming into the profession and that won't happen if the profession does not walk its talk. Defeatist if it doesn't.

BTW most people are passing the exam.
