Financial Feminism – Samantha Wood – Wood Mitchell

On this week’s podcast, Oli talks to Samantha Wood, financial planner and wealth manager at Wood Mitchell.

Samantha describes herself as a ‘financial feminist’ and is heavily involved in getting women into the early stage investing scene, whether as investors, founders or advisors.

She is part of a group of women leading the way in opening up more opportunities for women in financial services and beyond.

On this weeks podcast, Oli and Sam talk about;

  • Introducing Sam and her motivation 
  • Background and influence of time in armed forces on attitude
  • Lessons learned on equality and the perceived role of men and women in the army
  • How does Sam see women in 2023, looking at their place in financial services
  • Angel investing – everyone can play a role – experiences with founders and as an advisor
  • The next wave of female entrepreneurs – do they have to always be ‘formidable’?
  • What do you see daily as obstacles or challenges that really bug you – how do we change things
  • Key words and advice for young female entrepreneurs
