Women’s Financial Network Founder Susan Jackson has received numerous awards and accolades over the years – for her work in developing financial literacy in Australia and for her business acumen.
The award was granted to Susan in recognition of the key role she played in designing and helping to develop and facilitate The Women’s Financial Literacy Project aimed at raising the level of financial literacy of Victoria’s female population.
The FPA Value of Advice Awards recognise FPA members’ professionalism and acknowledge financial planners who demonstrate ‘best practice’ standards of advice in both the financial planning and wider communities. In particular, the Community Contribution category assesses the planner’s contribution to the community’s financial wellbeing through the value contributed by the planner’s involvement and willingness to share financial expertise and the experience in a planned and sustained programme.
It is also no surprise to find that Susan has been twice (1999/2003) nominated for the Telstra Businesswomen Awards and earned a Finalist place in the 2003 and 2005 Victorian Telstra Small Business Awards.
