Trainer’s profile: Sophie Paine (a+b=3)
Daughter of teachers and grand-daughter of an entrepreneur, Sophie’s vision is a world where financial hardships do not prevent children and adults from getting education and where money is a tool to grow our most precious asset: ourselves. Sophie has worked with immigrants in the US and Hong Kong and in 2005 she set up a+b=3, a social enterprise to improve NGOs’ capacity in financial education through training their trainers and designing programmes - including behaviour about money. Sophie also co-founded Enrich in 2007, an NGO to empower Hong Kong migrant workers to be more in control of their finance and encourage each other and their families. Sophie holds a DECF (Qualified Accountant), a Master degree in business studies (Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris), a post-graduate in finance and banking (Paris-Dauphine) and a diploma in Islamic Finance (ETHICA). She has worked in financial management and accounting in US and British corporations and international non-profit organisations for more than 15 years. She has facilitated training workshops in Hong Kong, Cambodia (15 trips in 7 years!), the Philippines, USA, Shanghai, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and online programmes. She loves adding colour to financial training to engage all participants even those who hate numbers! Since 2005, a+b=3’s programmes have reached more than 5,000 people. Our mission is to help people make better decisions with money to have a more harmonious and healthier life.
This workshop will be co-facilitated in Khmer by a VBNK trainer.
