Join Qantas Media Award-winning journalist Mary Holm as she lays out the central thesis of her 2018 book Rich Enough? A Laid-Back Guide For Every Kiwi which takes readers through eight steps to get their money sorted, while also considering the fascinating relationship between money and happiness. Mary writes a personal finance Q&A column in the Weekend Herald and presents a fortnightly money segment on Jesse Mulligan’s Radio NZ show.
She is a director of Financial Services Complaints Ltd (FSCL), and was a founding director of the Financial Markets Authority. Mary holds degrees in economic history, journalism and finance (for the last she was taught by Nobel Laureate Merton Miller and graduated in the top 15%).
At 1pm Mary will be speaking with Rosie Dawson-Hewes focusing on why getting savvy with your money is important. New Zealand’s leading financial communicator Mary Holm will discuss with Rosie Dawson-Hewes whether buying a first home is the only way to do well financially (no!); whether it’s wise to pay off a student loan fast (not necessarily); how to handle credit card debt; and how to get the most out of KiwiSaver. Questions from the floor essential! Tickets available here.
