Jo Thresher

Director

Jo Thresher is an award-winning financial services professional with almost 30 years’ experience, a trained money coach with a true understanding of the difference between what people want and what typical financial services businesses tell people. Jo’s system of challenges and workshops are tried and tested to gently push people forward to being in a better financial place without being boring or selling anybody anything!


Why it Works

Building financial knowledge, confidence, clear thinking and resilience in your people means they are happier, more engaged, less stressed and more likely to remain with you.

Most financial information is about a product or a service and doesn’t join up with an individuals life. It ignores their thoughts, reality, pressures and future dreams. Our courses aim to ensure that people bring their thoughts together and we use coaching models and tools to ensure they put them into practice.

Jo and her team came into our Contact centres to help our advisors with money matters.  We have seen an increase in Pension contributions and use of our Reward Site due to her sessions with them.  The feedback has been “can we have more”, “the mortgage preparation advice was invaluable”, “I’ve had a rebate from my bank due to the information Jo gave us”.  We will be having her back on a regular basis, it’s a life skill that’s valuable to us and shows our employees that we value them.

"We have great advisers and excellent benefits, but when you want to engage real people with real saving, it’s less about what we know and more about how we get the message across."

Jo came in to our school this year to deliver a talk all about personal finance to our Sixth Form students, and it was a real eye-opener for students and staff alike!  Jo was a fantastic speaker, and made what could have been a dull topic to 16-18 year olds, informative and extremely engaging throughout the session. We look forward to welcoming Jo back again next academic year to meet our new Year 12 students!
