Organised by For Working Ladies
"Money Talks" is a three-part series including interviews, workshops and panels brought to you by For Working Ladies. The events will take place over three nights from May - June with the aim of creating a space to demystify the world of personal and business finance. In part two, in partnership with WealthSimple, we'll be delivering a workshop on investing.
