We spoke to judges, participants and the winner about why events like Finding Your Voice is crucial for the wealth and investment management community.

Founded in 2018, Finding Your Voice is designed to equip women in wealth and investment management with the confidence to speak up and to speak with authority.

“With our wonderful coach and leadership mentor Alison Campbell, we designed a programme to help people find their voice and not be afraid to speak out in any situation – business or otherwise”, said Jenny Adams, Editor in Chief, IMpower | FundForum.

The 2024 programme focussed on understanding the common response to public speaking: fear.

“Fear is something we have in our mind, and it’s easy to overcome it if you understand how your body works”, shared Alison Campbell.

Equipped with Campbell’s expert guidance, 6 participants took stage on the evening of 1 May 2024, where they presented to a room full of wealth and investment management professionals their personal stories.

The 2024 Finding Your Voice participants are:

  • Kelly Burdett, Northern Trust (winner)
  • Antonietta Price, Simplify Consulting
  • Claire Dear, Scottish Widows
  • Maria Kendall, Redington
  • Shayna-Mae Bungay, HSBC Asset Management
  • Christine Mbah, Morgan Stanley

“IMpower does a lot to get women to speak at events and to represent the industry. These kind of initiatives help us build the confidence to say yes”, Laura Bampfylde, 2024 Finding Your Voice judge and former participant.

Say yes, and join extraordinary women at IMpower, the #1 networking event for global asset & wealth managers.
