Women team up to offer free business masterclasses

Jay Bhayani

Businesswomen Jillian Thomas and Jay Bhayani have teamed up to offer a series of free masterclasses for business owners and directors.

Jillian, director of Future Life Wealth Management in Renishaw, will run the masterclasses with Jay Bhayani hosting them at her company’s offices in the centre of Sheffield.

The first, in September, is entitled ‘Creating a financial plan and pensions uncovered’.

Jillian said: “There are a lot of great business people and business owners in Sheffield and north Derbyshire offering great products and services. But they may be held back simply because they lack some financial knowledge. We want to do our bit to give business owners and directors more confidence, particularly those who are thinking about how and when they might retire.

“By doing that we know we can help businesses thrive and grow, and that is good for the individuals, the companies they run and the wider economy.”

Jay, director of Bhayani HR and Employment Law, said: “We are delighted to team up with Jillian and her team. People are so busy concentrating on their core business that future plans and aspirations are often neglected. Jillian’s expertise will be invaluable to get directors thinking about their financial health.”

The masterclasses will be held at Bhayani Law’s offices on Shoreham Street and will run from 4.30pm to 6.00pm, with the first on September 4th. The second on October 28th will look at investments and life assurance. And the third, on December 9th, will be a chance to pull it all together in a plan, with opportunities for one-to-one sessions with Jillian and her team at a later date. All the classes must be booked in advance.

Bhayani HR and Employment Law specialises in all areas of employment law and HR services. The award-winning firm is one of the UK’s only niche firms offering a one stop service from HR to employment law.

Future Life Wealth Management, which is based in Renishaw, was set up by Jillian in 2009. The company offers a bespoke financial planning service to generators and receivers of wealth.

Every year since 2013 Future Life has been listed in the New Model Adviser Top 100, which recognises financial planners for their qualifications, income and commitment. Jillian is also a past president of Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and is currently a patron of East Midlands Chamber of Commerce.
