WINNIPEG - Empowered By CFHU - Let's Talk About Money, with Laura McDonald - February 23, 2017
On Thursday, February 23rd, the first ‘Empowered By CFHU’ event took place in the Winnipeg Jewish community. The program is a joint initiative by CFHU’s community ambassador to Winnipeg Sigal Kleynerman and a local young professional Alexa Solomon. The idea behind the program is to allow young professional Jewish women to meet, network and develop a substantial skill-set that will allow personal and professional development.
In their first event, the two hosted Laura McDonald, a Senior Sales Consultant for Wealth products at RBC Insurance with a focus on wealth preservation and estate planning. She is formerly the co-founder of the influential media property GoldenGirlFinance.com. Laura has been a frequent financial expert and spokesperson in the press and media – including appearances on BNN, The Social, CityLine and The Marilyn Denis Show, and as financial expert for Chatelaine magazine. She is also the co-author of two best-selling personal finance books. Following their initial success, Sigal and Alexa are planning their next event, which will take place in the weeks to come.
