Meet the expert and balance your finances

Limassolians of all ages and backgrounds will have a chance to learn about ‘Making their money work harder’ during a workshop held at Hotel Londa on October 3 by British Chartered Financial Planner Cynthia Casey.

Proceeds from the workshop will go towards the Cyprus Stop Trafficking charity.

The event is hosted by the non-governmental organisation Cyprus International Women of Today (CIWOT), a charitable group whose three main purposes are community service, personal growth and friendship. The opening of their season sees a new initiative – the CIWOT Business Club – whose head, Nino Giorgobiani, is also a key member of the workshop’s organisational team. “Good financial skills are key for any successful business woman and we are really excited about this opportunity to get to learn from Cynthia,” she says.

Better understanding

“Understanding your financial situation is becoming more important than ever before,” says Casey, a Fellow of the Personal Finance Society UK – the highest qualification available. Casey has been working with the financial markets for 25 years and currently works with the FM Group, an international advisory firm in Limassol.

“Life has changed dramatically, the cost of living is continuously increasing, retiring early is becoming just a dream and the money saved has to go much further,” the speaker adds. During the half-day workshop, she will be exploring 10 key ways that participants can use to improve their financial position and help them achieve their future financial goals, looking at the money available and better ways of managing it. She says participants can expect a fun and interactive seminar during which they will also be able to share their own skills and experiences, exploring practical tools and holistic solutions under her guidance.


Cyprus International Women of Today currently has 50 members. The organisation offers courses to learn new skills and holds regular social and charity events. They connect women in their communities and with their neighbours, aiming to help them become better leaders, strengthening individual talents, and provide a supportive network and meaningful friendships. Their monthly meetings usually take place on the third Wednesday of every month and are open to everybody.
