We all face adversity in our lifetime, some of us are able to flourish when things get difficult while others may struggle getting out of bed in the morning. For our June Enterprising Women Webinar, we will hear from guest speaker Jillian Thomas, Managing Director of Future Life Wealth Management.

Jillian will be discussing how she has overcome many hurdles within both her career and personal life, yet continued to grow her business through the hard times.

Overcoming adversity is key in becoming a successful woman in business, to overcome difficult situations and implement positive change regardless setbacks. Enterprising Women’s key aim is to support the women in business across our region, so we want to help you develop your own skills in a topic which affects so many in the workplace.”


Jillian Thomas started Future Life Wealth Management ten years ago and it has grown into one of the most respected and successful wealth management companies in the UK under her inspired leadership. The company provides a bespoke financial planning service to generators of wealth, typically business owners, executives and professionals, and also to receivers of wealth, such as inheritors, divorcees, widows and retirees.

Jillian Thomas has shown ambition and determination to grow the business in a sector dominated by men. Future Life is one of just 2% of financial planning firms owned by a woman. But Jillian believes her role as a leader should extend beyond the company and takes an active role in civic life. She is a past president of Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and a current patron of East Midlands Chamber.

She was invited to represent finance in the prestigious Government’s Parliamentary Review 2017 and the company has been listed in the top 100 in the UK by New Model Adviser every year since 2013.

The company is based in north east Derbyshire, right on the Sheffield border, with clients across the north, midlands and further afield.
