Robin is a sought-after panelist on most any personal finance or investing topic. As a woman in a male-dominated industry and a mother of two, she also enjoys sharing her experiences managing work-life balance, and her passion for advancing women to positions of leadership in the world of business and finance.
The biggest audience Robin has addressed to date was at the Walrus Talks Philanthropy, where she had to take the stage right after Margaret Atwood – a Canadian living legend!
The Wisest Investment: Teaching Your Kids to Be Responsible, Independent and Money-Smart for Life
Most parents know that teaching their kids about money is critical to success in life, but studies show that many parents feel they lack the time, knowledge and experience to do it well. Add the seismic shift towards a cashless, digital society – accelerated in our post-pandemic world – and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.
In this engaging and entertaining keynote, Robin will share:
- why teaching your kids about money is The Wisest Investment,
- how to teach your kids using three easy-to-implement strategies, and
- what to talk about at different ages and stages, from young kids, to preteens, to teenagers to emerging adults, using the Five Pillars of Money.
You will leave feeling inspired and ready to take action towards raising responsible, independent, money-smart kids for life.
“Robin knows kids and money. She is smart, passionate and proven.”
-Bruce Sellery, Money Columnist for CBC and Cityline
“Robin was a consummate professional – always prepared, engaged, thorough and detail-oriented. Her ability to adapt and tailor her keynote presentation to suit our audience shows how knowledgeable she is on financial literacy matters, and the thought and care she puts into her work. Even with tight timelines and unexpected hurdles, Robin handled everything gracefully and even proactively provided suggestions to make our webinar better. When I talk about attention to detail and how much thought Robin puts into her work, I should also mention that she proactively wore our company colours! I look forward to working with Robin and her team again.“
-Jennifer Chen, Manager, Advisor Content & Strategy at Canada Life
“Thank you for being a part of the Women in Action Conference and for an amazing presentation. Even though I don’t have children myself, it was great information to have to pass on to my nephew. The attendees who didn’t have children commented the same and said that they would be teaching their nieces, nephews and grandchildren about it. It was brilliantly done and ended the conference on a high-note.”
-Pooja Loyola, Conferences and Events Specialist, CPA Ontario
“You were absolutely phenomenal on the panel yesterday. Your wisdom and expertise really resonated with our audience as the chat was lighting up every time you spoke!”
-Kelley Keehn, author, personal finance educator and host of Women Claiming Wealth conference
“Robin recently led a keynote speech at the Canadian Personal Finance Conference on how to raise money-smart kids, which was very well received by the audience. Robin summarized takeaways from her book of the same topic and gave the audience actionable advice for their families. We’d love to host Robin again and would recommend her as a financial expert!”
-Kerri-Lynn McAllister, Tech Leader, Former CMO at Ratehub and Life & Co
