Introducing Money Doctors’ Financial Wellbeing Days
Money Doctors will either visit your company premises in arrangement with HR / company directors and consult with individual employees who require financial advice in total confidence or hold Zoom consultations at a time and date to suit your employees’ schedules.
These one to ones are called the 20 minute Money Doctors consultation and cover the A to Z of personal finance as detaled above. This is how it works :
– An online realtime Fact Find is completed by those members of staff who are looking for advice whereby they give us a picture of their financial situation. (ALL financial advisers MUST comply legally with this Central Bank of Ireland directive every time they meet clients so that appropriate and personalised recommendations, solutions and action plans can be prepared and given at consultations.)
– The employee may return the completed Fact Find to us prior to the consultation day, the Financial Wellbeing Day. This means we can go straight to the heart of the issues without the waffle.
– Alternatively, members of staff can bring their completed Fact Find into the actual consultation appointment with them and based on the content, the Money Doctors will review and prescribe if necessary at the meeting. If further time is required, that can be agreed with the member of staff outside of company time.
– After and arising from the consultation, a follow-up email with fact sheets, spread sheets and other documents that may be pertinent and very helpful to those seeking advice will be sent out within 48 hours….
Please contact us directly if your company wish to avail of this service or book a financial wellbeing seminar or webinar.
What They Say
“It was a pleasure to welcome John to Dropbox in February 2018. John delivered an interactive, interesting and thought provoking session which received excellent feedback from Dropboxers. We look forward to welcoming John back to Dropbox soon.”
- Cliodhna Thomson – Dropbox I EMEA People Ops
“John gave a great presentation on personal finances to our Springboard+ Enterprise programme this week. The talk was well presented and the feedback was excellent. Our participants went away with a very useful handout and practical tips such as do a weekly and monthly personal finance budget. I recommend the Money Doctor to those starting a business.”
Cairín O’Connor – Development Director, Docklands Innovation – A Bolton Trust initiative
“John met with our Irish team post-budget to conduct a seminar on Surviving the recession – simple steps to transform your finances, giving them valuable financial insights and enabling them to structure and budget their own finances. He also completed one-to-one financial consultations with our team members on the day and provided them with insightful feedback in the form of a “financial prescription”. John was able to provide our team members with the Money Doctor Finance Annual to further enable their financial education. In particular the Seminar/Financial Prescription/Finance Annual format is one that can work really well in any organisation. Given the financial pressures currently on employees in Ireland I would strongly recommend that organisations work with John to inform, educate and ultimately empower staff to contribute to their own bottom line.”
Frank Scott-Lennon – HR Director PCH International China Solutions
“Many thanks to John and his team on the excellent, up beat and interesting presentation made to our colleagues. The feedback from all who attended has been very positive and John really “struck a chord” with colleagues on the key points to assess when considering personal finance matters. Also, the materials John and his team presented were succinct, relevant and very professional. All in all it has been a very worthwhile process”.
Niall Eyre – HR Director Pfizer Healthcare Ireland
