Cost of Living and Personal Finance Speakers

With the cost of living crisis currently facing the UK, many of our corporate clients have been considering how best they can reimagine their business models and equip their workforce with the tools they need for positive budgeting.

Whether this is through personal finance management or business based finance sociologically, JLA offers a fantastic range of after dinner and conference speakers who can help drive positive change and offer solutions to support your employees.
