Course Trainer:

Simonne Gnessen has over 25 years’ experience in financial services and is the creator and founder of Wise Monkey Financial Coaching and co-author of Sheconomics. She has created an innovative service to help clients challenge their attitude to money, and feel inspired and motivated to take more responsibility for their financial future.

Simonne generously shares her skills, resources and stories throughout the five days. Using a blended method of teaching - including: games; role-plays; coaching simulations; case studies; interactive and experiential learning activities and discussions - she will equip you with everything you need to coach clients just like she does. Plus you'll take away a manual packed full of invaluable resources specifically designed to set you up with all you need to start coaching clients of your own.

Small group sizes are guaranteed to provide plenty of opportunity for you to practice, and receive coaching on, the skills and tools you learn during the week.


Who should attend?

If you're looking for flexible work running your own financial coaching business, or wish to learn additional financial coaching skills to integrate into your existing practice, we would love to welcome you on the training. The course is equally suited to individuals currently working in financial services or someone with knowledge of personal finance and desire to start an exciting new career.
