Students can submit an abstract for oral presentation or a poster exhibit. Students are welcome to submit their oral presentation in the traditional presentation style or make use of the Pecha Kucha presentation style, as described in the Abstracts section of this website.

Joe Virgona – Director, Your Money Manager

Joe will present to students on the key life skill of managing your money. He is a financial planner with 19 years’ experience and a director at the financial planning firm Your Money Manager for the last 14 years. Joe works with and helps individuals and families to:

  • simplify and improve how they manage their money so they can start to save, get on top of debts and move from living pay day to pay day to focusing on how they want to live long term.
  • own their own properties, whether it’s their first home or an investment property and then combine this with using their superannuation and other investments to set themselves up.
  • create effective longer term strategies and plans so once they get to retirement they will have more choice about what they do and where they go.

He observes that the people who know how to look after their money are the ones who invest in themselves and their futures, and who can then go on and help their families and the wider community and wants to help as many people as possible to get into this position.

Key topics: managing your super, salary packaging and strategic investment

Key message – don’t live off your pay day to pay day and know how to manage your money
