Regionally-based women invited to attend ‘rewiring wealth and wellness’ workshops in Cooma

Designed to give regionally-based women skills and tools to improve financial ‘wellness’, the one-day workshop is backed by food and agribusiness banking specialist Rabobank and hosted by the bank’s Central and Northern NSW Rabo Client Council.

The workshop program – which is being delivered around country Australia – has been designed to give regionally-based women access to financial education in the communities in which they live.

The interactive workshops, which are free of charge, have been developed for rural women – both farmers and those living regionally – to take time out of busy lives to “reflect on self-worth and net worth”.

Facilitated by Zoe Lamont, co-founder of Verve Money, the sessions focus on individual goal setting and the development of money management strategies to help achieve those goals.

The Cooma workshop – which will be held at the Alpine Hotel in Sharp Street, beginning at 8.45am – is being staged by the Central and Northern New South Wales Rabo Client Council – the local chapter of groups of the bank’s farming clients who volunteer their time implementing programs that contribute to the sustainability of rural communities.

The in-person, day-long workshop is designed to be “a valuable educational, learning and networking opportunity” as participants came together to set their goals for the years ahead.

Focused on understanding finances and financial options – including savings, debt, investment portfolios, superannuation and insurance – the workshop will give women participating the opportunity to articulate their short, medium and longer-term goals and the steps to help get there. Participants will have the chance to “reflect on their purpose and vision for the decade ahead and to develop powerful goals and align their money to their mission and create a practical plan for their next phase”.

Rabobank area manager for central and northern NSW Virginia Croker said the workshop program – initiated through the Rabo Client Council – was one way the bank, together with its farming clients, could address some of the big challenges facing the ag sector, with building long-term industry capacity a key objective.


“Women play such a crucial role in their business, community and family and we hope that by attending this workshop they feel empowered to achieve some of their longer-term financial goals,” she said.

Funded by Rabobank’s Rabo Client Council, the workshops are open to clients and non-clients of Rabobank and there is no cost for participants to attend. Further information and applications to attend the workshop can be found at Zoe Lamont Workshops (eventsair.com).
