Peta-Rose Hall Managing Director BPM Financial to present at “Businessuite Women – Manifest the Foreseen in 2019”
Dr. Anita Davis DeFoe Editorial Director for Businessuite Women is pleased to announce that Peta-Rose Hall Managing Director BPM Financial Ltd. has agreed to share her insights and expertise at the upcoming Manifest the Foreseen in 2019 Knowledge Think Tank Conference.
Peta-Rose Hall’s presentation scheduled for Thursday March 28th 2019 between 9am – 12noon as part of Women and Investing 2019 is entitled:
“Women and The Investment Gap That Exists, Is It Because So Few Women Invest?”
“Over the years there has been a lot of talk about the pay gap but the investment gap is also significant. So the question is why do so few women invest in the financial markets. The stock exchange here has done some work on this but when you think about women everywhere earning more now, it is odd that they don’t invest to create wealth. The question is why?”
According to Dr. Davis Defoe attendees are certain to benefit from the information shared at this event as Peta-Rose Hall’s insights will be key to helping them in achieving the goals of the Wealth Creation Panel.
The mission of the Manifest the Foreseen in 2019 Think Tank Conference is to provide tools and strategies that attendees can readily use to make notable progress in the attainment of career and finance goals. Too often, even when an individual has clear career or finance goals, they lack the tools and skills required to achieve envisioned results. The aim is for attendees to leave the conference with at least one tool and takeaway that is realistically actionable and supports manifestation of desired results or at least supports achievement of initial progress.
