Conference 2019 Jasmine Birtles 10

Jasmine’s Talks

Jasmine is an experienced and knowledgeable speaker on financial and business topics. She has a lively and friendly style and tends to speak from the point of view of the consumer.

She’s the woman who “puts the funny into money” and makes an often dry and off-putting subject fun, accessible and interesting.

She will often give talks that are tailored to the organisation and event that is hiring her but she also has

some set speeches and workshops that she can give at conferences, after dinners and within an office environment.

The financially: Phobic UK consumer

Jasmine is regularly asked to speak at conferences where she gives the view of the consumer on relevant financial issues.

For example, this year she has spoken about pensions, retirement saving generally, investing and general financial capability at conferences this year.

She gives lively talks using humorous stories, statistics, observations from her interactions with viewers and listeners and comments from readers of her website MoneyMagpie. Her talks often include video clips and slides and talks can be given to groups of any size.

FinTech: Present and future

Jasmine speaks about the pros and cons of different forms of Fintech, again, particularly from the point of view of the consumer

She covers areas such as banking apps, peer-to-peer platforms, cryptocurrencies, Blockchain-based technologies and robots-investing

She also speaks about the potential uses in personal finance and investing of emerging technologies such as AI and VR

A fan of Fintech, Jasmine nevertheless is skeptical about many of the claims of its developers, and is wary of both various products’ vulnerabilities to hackers and fraudsters and their interfaces with consumers. Her talks can be given to groups of any size.

Insider Secrets Everything a woman should know about being a successful Entrepreneur

A serial entrepreneur and business journalist, Jasmine speaks about entrepreneurship from her own experience and that of other businesspeople.

Jasmine speaks about the ten mistakes women tend to make when they set up a business including thinking too small, not wanting to fire people, taking more interest in the activity of business than the bottom line, not focussing enough on the core business and more.

Her talk is relevant for groups of any size and age. She targets it particularly at women but it is also relevant for a mixed audience.

Since 2006; when Jasmine founded and launched her money making and saving web site MoneyMagpie.com ;she’s learnt first-hand what it takes to build a successful consumer brand that now has over 80,000 readers and users UK-wide

Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain: what are they, what will they be and how do you get into it?

As well as speaking about Fintech generally, Jasmine speaks about cryptocurrencies and Blockchain for the average consumer.

She explains, in simple and concrete terms, what cryptocurrencies are, how they work, what their future is and how to invest in them

She also explains what Blockchain is, what it’s uses are and could be and how it could transform the way we do business and run countries.

These talks can be given to groups of any size but if more hands-on information about investment is wanted then it is better for a smaller group.
