The Final 2020 Ed Session ~ 7pm Wednesday 7th October 2020

In our final Ed Session for 2020 you’ll hear from Ashby Redward from Payright and celebrant turned Funeral Advocate Robyn O’Connell.

About Ashby and Payright…

Founded by brothers Piers and Myles Redward in 2016, Payright is an Australian-owned payment plan provider. Intended for larger and more considered transactions, Payright allows merchants to offer their customers a buy-now-pay-later payment solution across a wide variety of sectors, including the funeral industry.

Payright provides flexible payment terms allowing families, for example, to pay tribute to their loved ones without worrying about funeral expenses. Our non-invasive, 3-min, instant approval process allows individuals to complete an application privately on their mobile phone. Merchants are paid in-full within 24 hours of the completed application.

Ashby Redward joined his brothers, Piers and Myles, at Payright in 2017 and is available to answer any questions you have.

About Robyn

Robyn O’Connell has been a funeral celebrant for close to 20 years.  Having worked for most funeral companies in Melbourne at some point in time and having written over 2,000 services, she has a good grasp of the sorts of questions and answers people need to know.  She is passionate in people understanding how a great funeral can reflect exactly who that person was. 

Robyn O’Connell is forging a different path in the funeral industry, starting a new business called Your Wishes Funeral Advocacy.  Now working as a funeral consultant, she provides a fee for service, where families can get completely independent advice on how to choose the right funeral director for them.  As a consequence, Robyn has revamped her booklet Some Things I Might Not Have Told You… but you might like to know, from being a 12 page A5 booklet in 2004 to a 32 page A4 booklet for people to be able to record not only important information, but their memories as well.  She has now made that available to the funeral industry, come along and hear about it.
