Event description
Money expert Emilie Bellet leads a masterclass that will arm you with the practical skills you need to manage your finances with confidence.

About this event

Growing up many of us did not have access to financial education. Anything we know we have learned through experience. This trial and error approach can mean that we are more vulnerable to financial difficulties. None of this is helped by the fact that as a population we are on the whole reluctant to broach the subject of money, leaving us feeling unprepared and in the dark.

Enter Emilie Bellet, bestselling author of You’re Not Broke, You’re Pre-Rich, founder of Vestpod, and host of The Wallet. In this session, she opens up a non-judgmental, open and honest conversation about money, helping you to set realistic, attainable financial goals for 2022 and beyond.

While this session does not offer financial advice, you’ll be armed with information to do your own research. The aim is to get you started on your journey towards financial fluency, with simple, efficient and engaging exercises that can improve your money management confidence. You will leave with a clearer understanding of what money means to you, why you’re saving, how to improve your financial situation, and, importantly, how to invest in yourself.

This course is for …

  • Beginners with a desire to get to grips with the basics
  • Those with prior financial knowledge who want to brush up on their understanding or begin thinking about their long-term options

Course content

  • Financial goal-setting for 2022
  • Conducting a financial checkup
  • Understanding your money mindset and behaviours
  • How to make a budget
  • Short-term debt and repayment strategies
  • Tips for salary negotiation
  • Investments: why and when to consider investing for the long term

Tutor profile

Emilie Bellet is the founder and CEO of Vestpod, the author of bestselling money guide You’re Not Broke, You’re Pre-Rich, and host of The Wallet podcast. Formerly working in private equity, she launched Vestpod to change the conversation about money. After reflecting on her years working in finance, she realised she was not saving or investing enough, and could not find the support to guide her through; this empowered her to launch Vestpod, as a means of providing education and a community for women to start breaking the taboo around money.
