Topics

I sometimes write articles, speak on panels or give talks about:

  • Inclusive design as a tool for designing for 'vulnerable customers'.
  • How open banking can be used to improve financial capability for those in vulnerable circumstances.
  • The link between money and mental health problems.
  • Diversity and inclusion in tech and fintech.
