Event description

Description

Over two days Money, Power and People will be exploring community-focused financial alternatives – complementary currencies, universal basic income, fintech and much more.

It’ll be rabble-rousing and enabling in equal measure, with day one devoted to big ideas and day two to practical sessions for alternative currencies and financial activists.

Day 1 will start at 9am and end at 4pm. Day 2 will run until 4:30pm. A light lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Money, Power and People will feature an incredible line-up of speakers and contributors. Confirmed so far:

Brett Scott is a journalist, campaigner and former derivatives broker. The author of The Heretic’s Guide to Global Finance: Hacking the Future of Money, his CV includes working on tax justice with Action Aid UK, and investigating food markets with the World Development Movement.

Fiona Archbold, Project Manager at Civilised Bank. Fiona started Tusmor to advise and help new banking start-ups and is the only person in the UK that has built two new retail banks, Metrobank and Ivo Bank, and a credit union, the Kensington & Chelsea Credit Union.

Rachel Oliver, Lead Organiser at Positive Money. After stints at Stop Aids and Crisis Action, Rachel campaigned for a few years at 38 Degrees, before joining Positive Money.
