CFFC Summit videos: From the front linesPosted to Financial Capability on 27-08-2015
Continuing our series of videos from our Financial Capability Summit, we have another two to share.
We heard from several people working on the front lines of financial capability in New Zealand.
Our Front Line panel featured Financial Services Complaints Ltd CEO Susan Taylor, Commerce Commission senior investigator Jo Tilley, Maori Women's Development Inc CEO Teresa Tepania-Ashton and Vaka Tautua CEO Mark Gosche. The topic of discussion was the day-to-day realities faced by many, from truck shops to loan guarantors. Circumstance, choices, education and regulation: how do we best equip New Zealanders to not just survive but thrive?
Incorporating financial education into the curriculum is always a hot topic. Stephen Kendall-Jones, principal at Albany Junior High School, shared some insights around teaching students about money.
