Tizzy Vigilante, IRESS Managing Director of Wealth Management, has joined the Advisory Board of Financial Executive Women (FEW) to help the positive progression of women in financial services.
As a judge at the recent ifa Excellence Awards, I thought I would share my thoughts on what makes a compelling award submission.
There were several judges in each category. Some of us were experts in the category and purposely, some of us weren’t, to help give diversity of thought.
I often fly back and forth from Melbourne to Sydney and I am still surprised how many people have confidential conversations that everyone can hear. It is like they think they have this invisible bubble around them and it is OK to speak as loud as they want.
I actually feel some of the conversations that I have heard are business risks and could be brand damaging for the company and individuals involved. My view is that companies should speak to their staff about this behaviour and educate them that private calls should be private.
After 25 years of Executive Search within the Financial Services Industry, Managing Director Judith Beck has announced FRG will no longer be recruiting.
Beck said she and her team will instead be focusing all their energies on FEW and the positive progression of women. It is time to focus on what she is really passionate about, which is helping women get from A to B to achieve their goals.
Australian women have reason to feel more optimistic about their economic progress, but more work is needed to sustain momentum.
AMP Capital chief economist Dr Shane Oliver added that if momentum continues and we see a 10% lift in female full-time work participation rates in line with male participation rates, it could lift Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by as much as 8%. This equates to an estimated $147 billion boost to the economy.
