Based on the demographics of visitors to my blog, it would seem that men are more likely than women to be interested in the areas of personal finance and investment.
In terms of the people I know personally, the same trend holds true. Do you notice the same trend as well?
Taking a look at my Index Investing Facebook Group, no doubt there are plenty of ladies in it as well but it would be fair to say that guys make up the majority.
It came as a surprise when the ladies behind The New Savvy reached out to me (not too sure what they see in my blog LOL) and informed me that they’re holding a conference that specifically target ladies. The Future Is Female is a women-only personal finance, empowerment + lifestyle conference.
The Future Is Female
You might be thinking, why should I pay for this? In this day and age, information is widely available online if one is willing to put in the effort.
All I can say is that each and every one of us learns differently, and the value they subsequently derive out of such an event is different. To me, it is all about improving financial literacy, regardless whether you are young or old, single or married. Whatever works for you!
I went through their impressive list of speakers and dug out a couple of familiar names (and gems) – to me, at least! I happened to have met with all three of them in real life and would love to give them some support 🙂
KEIR VESKIVÄLI | CEO & Founder, Smartly
LIONEL YEO | Founder, Cheerfulegg.com
TIMOTHY HO | Managing Director, Dollars & Sense
Of course, there are also senior representatives from several financial institutions, venture capitalists as well as successful women entrepreneurs.
I’m not too sure if all the speakers listed on their website has been confirmed yet, and if yes, it would be a huge list. I asked how is that possible to fit so many of them into a single day, and the answer was that the speakers would be grouped into different panels, and there will be a moderator for each panel.
This also means that there will definitely be opportunities (yup, they confirmed it) for the participants to ask their burning questions after each presentation 🙂 It is also likely to be possible for some of the speakers to mingle with the participants during lunch, breaks and drinks sessions too.
The Future is Female conference is taking place on 8th April 2017 (Saturday) and is is organized by The New Savvy, a women-focused financial literacy platform. Even though the folks from The New Savvy has given me a custom promo-code, I dug around and found that the official early bird price is CHEAPER so please use that one and you can get a better value.
