Every week The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews a famous person about her or his attitude to money (hopes and fears, successes and failures, etc.) as part of his weekly “Make Money Mondays, Personal Edition” feature.
This week Whitfield interviewed Barclays Africa Chairperson Wendy Lucas-Bull.
Lucas-Bull has been Barclays Africa Chairperson since 2013.
She is also Chairperson of Absa Bank and Absa Financial Services.
Last month Lucas-Bull was famously called a "bully" by the ANC Women’s League for suggesting the organisation should stop commenting about the Bankorp bail-out issue on social media.
What does Lucas-Bull believe about money?
Does it keep her up at night?
Does she spend like crazy, or save compulsively?
- How did her childhood experiences of deprivation, or abundance, shape her views on money?
