In the current environment, management of personal finances is a life skill of increasing importance. The children of today will grow up to become young professionals or entrepreneurs who are likely to see high levels of income quite early in their career. Learning about basic financial concepts from a young age will hold them in good stead as they step out into the real world.
Let’s Talk Money offers a series of interactive, child-friendly workshops. The workshops cover fundamental concepts on personal finance, including income and expenses, differentiating between needs and wants, understanding why savings are essential, assets in which savings can and should be invested, managing risk through insurance and planning for financial goals.
Our workshops are:
We bring an element of fun into our workshops through activities that have been specifically created for relevant age groups. These include crossword puzzles, word searches, role plays and quizzes based on the financial concepts covered in our workshops.
Our presentations use real-life examples and metaphors that children can relate to in order to explain basic financial concepts. We convey technical concepts using language and examples that are simple to grasp.
Our specially designed curriculum is divided into 3 age groups so that concepts are covered in depth for older children while younger children enjoy a fun-filled introduction to the world of money matters.
In school and outside
We partner with schools to conduct our workshops across grades either during school hours or as an extra-curricular activity after school or during holidays. We are also able to conduct workshops privately in community-based activity centres or housing complexes for a sizeable group of participants.
We are a team of Chartered Accountants with extensive professional experience and an in-depth understanding of financial concepts. Our own children have been our inspiration. With typical child-like curiosity, they have been eager to learn about concepts such as income, spending wisely, savings, banking, interest and investments. Our experience shows that when financial concepts are explained with the help of relevant examples or metaphors that they can relate to, children have been able to grasp and understand them quite easily.
