Collaboration Success Story

Emily Bouchard and Paul Hood

They are a Collaboration Success Story worth highlighting! They met at the 2011 PPI Rendezvous in Denver, Colorado. Through networking activities at the event they quickly realized that they had a common interest in and passion for working with blended families. The first collaborative engagement was to co-lead a PPI teleconference (Lifetime Estate Planning Issues and Challenges for Blended Families and Their Advisers, October 2011). They quickly realized how much they enjoyed working together. Paul, who already had a publishing contract when they met, invited Emily to become the co-author and they published Estate Planning for the Blended Family in July 2012. Emily and Paul are collaborating on several projects and have co-presented several PPI sessions (teleconferences and Rendezvous breakout sessions) and have presented for the Ultimate Estate Planner on Blended Family Estate Planning, as well as at Estate Planning Councils and various conferences.
