Event description

Description

Love it or loathe it, the quality of our relationship with finance contributes significantly to whether we survive or thrive. All too often finance is one of the biggest causes of stress for both people and organisations.

  • What does it take to have a healthier relationship with finance?
  • What would life be like if finance nurtured rather than depleted resources?
  • How does our mindset affect our ability to create healthy financial wellbeing?
  • How do we create a relationship with money that enables us to be more resilient in an uncertain and complex world?

These are just some of the big questions we’ll be exploring in this exciting one-off event.

We’re bringing together some of the most interesting finance experts to help us to experience a real conversation about what it means to have financial wellbeing in today’s world. We’ll explore the concept of financial resilience for the individual, the group and the organisation.

Looking at finance as one of a number of life energies that can be depleted or refreshed, we’ll explore how shaking the proverbial money tree can be key to recognising other changes we can make to be more resilient. We will make time to consider financial self-worth; how this could just be the key to a better night’s sleep.

We’ll look at what organisations can do to promote financial wellbeing in their cultures, exploring how systems can respond to individual, organisational and community needs. Together we’ll identify tangible steps organisations can take with those employees who find themselves living on ‘the financial edge’.

At Oasis, we’re fundamentally interested in relationship as a way of understanding the world. How do we relate to ourselves and each other in order to reach our full potential? How do we create healthy working environments which allow people to relate to their peers, their work and the systems in which they find themselves in order for them to do their best work? Finance is a crucial part of any system and as such requires us to explore what being in ‘healthy relationship with finance’ means and how we can optimise it for the greater good.

More about our speakers

Angela Woodward, Skipton Building Society

Since 1853, Skipton Building Society has been dedicated to helping people save for the future and achieve their dreams of owning their own homes. It is now one of the UK’s largest building societies. The way they work is known as mutuality and it underpins everything they do. They don't have shareholders to pay, which means they invest extra profits back into the Society for the benefit of their members. Being there for their customers to help them have a better life is still – and always will be – at the heart of what they do. Their key strength is people and culture built through lived values and they have been recognised externally through recent IiP Platinum award and No. 71 in the Times 100 Best Companies to Work for 2018.

Angela Woodward has 15 years’ HR experience within a number of the Halifax and Lloyds businesses before moving to Skipton as an HR Business Partner. In 2017 she led a focused and successful approach to colleague wellbeing which sparked a real personal interest, and continues to build on this work in 2018.

Louise Woodruff, Joseph Rowntree Foundation

Joseph Rowntree Foundation is a British social policy research and development charity, that funds a UK-wide research and development programme.

JRF works by funding research and taking forward the lessons learned, engaging with policy-makers and practitioners to develop better solutions.

Louise Woodruff is leading on work with employers to develop good practice to address in-work poverty in low-paid sectors. Louise led JRF’s work on forced labour and exploitation in the UK. She has also worked on complex needs and on immigration for JRF’s strategy to solve UK poverty.

Valerie Monti-Holland

Valerie is a sociodramatist whose own narrative began in Philadelphia as an actor, director and facilitator. She is passionate about social justice and her portfolio of work reflects this.

This event is for you if...

... you are an organisation with a sense of purpose or at least working towards discovering one. It will appeal to you if you genuinely understand the value of investing in the development of the people you employ and want to understand more about unlocking or sustaining their success.

Most likely you prefer to make conscious and conscientious decisions in your organisation by understanding the ramifications of choices in the wider systems in which you operate. You will of course be working toward building a financially healthy organisation of your own and interested in creating a better night’s sleep for you and your team.

If you are an open organisation curious about having conversations to connect with what you already know and to explore what’s yet to be discovered about your financial health then this event is for you.

Oasis is committed to inspiring and developing 21st-century relationships. We're exploring individual and organisational resilience and wellbeing through the Resilience and Wellbeing Network.
