Money Sense: Make Money Your Superpower
We are pleased to announce that our annual financial literacy conference Money Sense: Make Money Your Superpower is back this November! All High School Ambassador (HAP) members, parents and teachers are invited to participate in this virtual conference on November 17th from 4:30-6:45 p.m.
The focus of Money Sense this year is investing and cryptocurrencies. Hear from industry professionals on how to get started with investing and learn all about cryptocurrencies!
The agenda for the event includes:
- Keynote address from best-selling author Robin Taub, CPA, CA
- Panel of industry leaders answering your questions about investing
- Workshop facilitated by BitBuy, one of Canada’s leading cryptocurrency marketplaces
Robin Taub is a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA, CA), keynote speaker and bestselling author. Her latest award-winning book, The Wisest Investment, is a financial road map for teaching kids about the Five Pillars of Money: Earn, Save, Spend, Share and Invest.
Think of her as Google Translate for personal finance. She takes complicated money topics and puts them into plain language.
Robin lives in Toronto where she and her husband have raised two (mostly) money-smart young adults, a son and a daughter who is also a CPA. For fun, she loves to snowboard, cycle and go to concerts.
