Understanding Your Financial Behaviour

For most of us, money and our feelings towards money are not static, but fluid, dynamic and intense. We know so little about why we experience these emotions towards money and the effects they have on our very existence. Not only do we have a physical self, an emotional self and a social self, but we also have a financial or money self.

Our psychological money self is an integral part of our behaviour and influences the way we manage our money. In other words, your financial personality is a major factor in how you utilize or save your money.

Discover your financial behaviour to find your personal financial happiness and peace in this riveting and intriguing motivational presentation!

It was a great pleasure having you as the Speaker for the public talk entitled "Understand Your Financial Behaviour" at Kolej Tunku Abdul Rahman Learning Centre in Kuala Lumpur. On behalf of Tunku Abdul Rahman College, I would like to thank you for devoting an evening to deliver the talk. Your talk was very informative and educational. I am sure the audience benefited immensely from your sharing of knowledge and insights on the topic"
