Public speaking


This page is a work-in-progress.

I sometimes 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


Bailey Kursar is founder of fintech-for-good Touco Lab. A financial inclusion advocate, she is also a member of the Government's Financial Inclusion Policy Forum.

At Touco, Bailey led the development of an app designed to help those with mental health problems better manage their money with the help of a family member or carer. Working with the Money and Mental Health Policy Institute and Northumbria University, her team was able to develop the app with direct input from those with lived experience, adhering to an inclusive design methodology.

Bailey is also author of an industry guide to inclusive design published by the Money Advice Trust and Fair By Design.

Prior to founding Touco, Bailey worked at several early stage 'fintech' companies including MarketFinance and Monzo. She is passionate about how innovation in financial services can improve outcomes for those in vulnerable circumstances.
