    Making serious stuff entertaining with the ‘keynote tickler’

    Making serious stuff entertaining with the ‘keynote tickler’

    This week’s episode is a little different. I’d like to share with you a conversation I had during lockdown with a friend of mine, Jeremy Nicholas.

    By profession, Jeremy is a writer and broadcaster with nearly three decades of experience on TV and radio, mainly with the BBC. But Jeremy has funny bones. So he has built a business as the man who puts serious laughs in serious talks.

    A Man is not a Financial Plan, with Mary Waring

    I thought it would be interesting to create a series of episodes about women and wealth, starting with my conversation today with Mary Waring.

    Mary is an award-winning chartered financial planner and chartered accountant who helps women to be financially confident and independent.

    She specialises in supporting women through and after divorce but is recognised as being a leading light in all aspects of female finances.

    The Menopausal Mermaids

    The title of today’s episode – The Menopausal Mermaids – is possibly quite intriguing. To explain further I’d like to share with you a conversation I had with sea swimmer Nicole Morelli towards the end of April.

    She is the founder of a sea swimming group called the Menopausal Mermaids and shares her story of why she created the group and what you can expect if you decide to take the plunge with Nicole and her fellow cold water swimmers.

    Becoming the ex-Fire Chief, with John Bonney

    Becoming the ex-Fire Chief, with John Bonney

    I always love to hear your personal stories of transitioning into retirement, so I was delighted when listener Mary Dixon suggested her brother, John Bonney as a podcast guest.

    In late May I spoke with John and asked him about his long career in the fire brigade, which culminated in him being chief of Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service for 11 years.

    During this time, he also served as President of his professional body and in 2015 he was honoured with a CBE in recognition of his service to the public.

Matt

Excellent series of podcasts providing some insightful aspects of people’s relationship with money, and how this impacts on decision making. Thoroughly enjoyed the podcasts I’ve listened to so far!

Mary Waring ,

So many ....

The podcasts are a great way to find out so much about what anyone who's retiring or considering retiring would be interested in. A whole array of information

1960 curioso ,

Disappointing

By some distance the most disappointing podcast I’ve listened to; make up your own minds, for me this added nothing.
