The others have been amazing: many are doing work as PRs; we have three full-time workers now across the FT Group who did work experience with Financial Adviser in years past, and others have gone on to equally good things. 

Advisers who put the time and effort into bringing the next generation up to scratch need not worry about succession planning: their future is in excellent hands. 

Don't be afraid of getting it wrong: work on getting it right, and the rewards far outweigh the time you've spent on bringing people into your firm.
