Join members and guests along with Lyn Hawkins (BWA) and Shayne Sommer (Shadforth Financial Group) at our June BWA Sydney Q&A event, as we delve into the financial literacy gap facing women, and proven ways to grow financial empowerment, enhancing wealth management.
Enjoy this opportunity to connect with female leaders and unpack the issues relating to personal finances. Lyn and Shayne will demystify the ways that individuals, leaders and organisations can support, educate and close the financial gap experienced by working women.
As an award winning financial adviser, Shayne is passionate about empowering people with their money, inspiring them to look forward to receiving their annual super statements, making wise investment decisions and growing their wealth. Shayne says “by establishing the pathway to wealth and financial freedom, rather than getting caught up in “should haves” and “it’s all too hard”, wealth and financial independence is attainable for all women in business.”
For many women, achieving financial independence is a key goal in their lives. If you are keen to connect with and hear powerful insights from women who have not only achieved financial success but who enjoy growing their wealth, this event is for you.
We invite all women, from diverse sectors, ages and backgrounds to join us at this event and help break the entrenched stereotypes of men being more finance-savvy, decision makers. Be quick to register and secure your seat as numbers are limited.
