“Emilie is a brilliant champion of female financial empowerment. We asked Emilie to produce a special event around financial capability and the International Women Day theme: #BreakTheBias. Emilie balanced discussing complex money topics and feminism in a really engaging and thought provoking way; encouraging attendees to take action not only for themselves but for friends, family and our wider female community. This is the true power of women supporting women.”
Lauren Fuller, NatWest Group
“Emilie is fantastic at inspiring people to take charge of their financial lives, with great insights, practical advice and relatable content. She gave a very engaging workshop for us which focused on the gender gap in investing and what women should do about it. I also think her book is a must read!”
Sharon Hubmann Skinner, BCG
“Emilie’s fantastic International Women’s Day talk was packed with practical tips and takeaways that were delivered in an digestible, engaging and truly inspiring way. She shared insightful statistics that illustrated the progress women have made when it comes to personal finance…but there is clearly still a way to go. Emilie really is driving a movement of female financial capability and empowerment.”
