How to be pension confident with Romi Savova, Founder of PensionBee
Saving for retirement can feel like a distant goal, with pensions often feeling complicated and impersonal.   But with research finding that by the time a woman is aged 65 to 69, her average pension wealth is roughly a fifth of that of a man the same age (Chartered Institute of Insurance 2018), saving for your pension can be vital for a happy retirement.  We know the gender pay gap negatively impacts women throughout their career. This disparity also affects how much we can save for our future, so how can we address the gender pension gap and ensure that we work towards closing it? My guest today is Romi Savova, the founder and CEO of PensionBee - the leading online pension manager giving customers ownership of their savings, encouraging them to actively interact with their pension pot through a unique combination of technology and customer-centric service.  In this episode, Romi shares how we can better understand our pension plans, the importance of financially planning for later life, and how to start saving.  It’s also a very exciting time for Romi as she gears up for PensionBee’s upcoming IPO. With only 5% of the FTSE 100 CEOs being female (IG Group, 2020) we take a look at Romi’s experience as a female founder working in the financial space and how her organisation has achieved complete gender parity.  You can follow and connect with Romi at:    * PensionBee: https://www.pensionbee.com * Twitter: @romisavova We shared some resources in this episode.

Ep 54. Adwoa chats with Stacy Sims, PhD, Global Expert on Female Athlete Physiology, and Nike Master Trainer Joslyn Thompson Rule about breaking taboos, first periods and girls dropping out of sport, and tracking your cycle to get the most out of fitness.
On this week’s podcast, I catch up with two formidable ladies in the fields of women’s health and sport. Stacy Sims, PhD is an expert in sex differences, and globally acclaimed for her research and TED Talk, ‘Women are Not Small Men’. She’s dedicated the last 20 years to educating women, and men, on the female body, and how it responds differently to athleticism than the male body. Joslyn Thompson Rule, a woman with many strings to her bow, is a Nike Global Master Trainer, a Sports Therapist, and Coaching Mentor. She draws from her years of coaching women, and young girls as we discuss the benefits of working with the female cycle: how it not only boosts health and training results, but also empowers girls to own their fitness through every stage of the menstrual cycle. I talk about my experiences with puberty, how confusing navigating that time can be, and we discuss why so many girls are dropping out of sport during puberty, after getting their period. I definitely remember skipping P.E. during that early life phase. It’s crazy that something that half the population gets is still the cause of such embarrassment. This week’s episode is a reminder to start having open conversations with girls about periods and sport early on. To be honest, I spent most of this episode enthralled by Stacy and Joslyn’s passion and commitment to this issue. And I learned a lot of things about my body, training, and the menstrual cycle that I didn’t know. Even as an adult! Easy listening guys - and as always mad, mad love. You can follow @DrStacySims and @JoslynThompsonRule, and you can follow us @gurlstalk.

Rukmini Iyer: Author of The Roasting Tin cookbooks and food stylist
My guest today is Rukmini Iyer Rukmini is a former lawyer turned bestselling author of the Roasting Tin series which have now sold over half a million copies. Amongst her army of followers – who call themselves the TinLads. She counts Nigella Lawson as a fan as well as other famous names from Jay Rayner to Judy Murray. The concept of the Roasting Tin books is deceptively simple, Mini’s recipes lure people in with the idea of the one-pot supper. But people return time and time again because the recipes taste even better than the lack of washing up feels. A pioneer of the _and I quote: ‘put everything in a roasting tin and shove it in the oven’ school of cookery, Mini’s fourth cookbook features tasty, no-fuss dishes from across the globe. As well as writing cookbooks, Rukmini styles and writes recipes for numerous brands and publications, including Waitrose, The Guardian and Fortnum and Mason. Of her success and the reaction to her books, Mini says – ‘It’s one thing having fans who are like, "this is great for dinner", but to have fans who are saying that you’ve changed the way they eat is very humbling,’ ‘You never think that something like a cookbook could have that much effect on someone’. Thank you so much for listening. So so many delicious dishes talked about!
