Ellegant Wealth Speaking Topics

Mission: Empowering women to show up and own their financial journey with Courage, Confidence & Wisdom!

Purpose: Women have been left out of the financial conversation too long and not provided with the tools to get them interested in the topic. Women have described the Ellegant Wealth experience as providing clarity, motivation & hope that is comprehensive, eye-opening & fun!


Signature Speaking Engagements:

In partnership with planners/advisors, foundations/non-profits, organizations, associations, women’s groups. Pricing dependent on variety of factors, including live or virtual, length of time, number of sessions.

    • Directed toward financial advisors/planners to provide them with ways to communicate more effectively with their female clients. 

“Money: It's a topic that many people shy away from, myself included. After hearing from Jayne Ellegard as our featured speaker for the Forum of Executive Women, I am reminded that my financial situation is something that will always be with me, so it is important to get engaged and take control of my own financial destiny! Jayne uses real-world examples and practical advice that has inspired me to be confident in my relationship with money, now and into the future. Thank you, Jayne!” – Amanda H.

“Jayne is an excellent presenter – skilled and approachable. She prompted me to examine my feelings and attitudes about money. Very beneficial!” – Anonymous
