What are Michelle’s unique abilities?

Commercially sensitive, culturally aware, corporately responsible, ethically minded and commercially focused are just a few of the phrases that encapsulate Michelle. She is a passionate champion of establishing and embedding ‘WOWW!’ within her clients’ businesses - from top to bottom and bottom to top - and this sets her apart from her peers.

Ownership, passion (yes more of it!), commitment and shared values are five more words that describe Michelle as she actively pursues her career and personal goals. Michelle fully embraces the challenges of helping businesses conform to regulatory protocols while also helping them to recognise and shed any tired or flawed views and beliefs which are holding them back.

Michelle adopts simple, effective management processes, implemented in a pragmatic and proportionate manner, yet both her own and her clients’ businesses remain at the heart of all that she strives to achieve.  Proportionality is an underused word, but it is especially relevant to Michelle’s approach to relationship management and task setting.

Michelle has a track record of delivery, combined with a breadth of experience and buckets of enthusiasm! Guaranteed to inspire confidence, she engages with all areas of each client's business in an empathetic, supportive and collaborative manner, ensuring that everyone is 'on message'. At the same time she will act as the business’ critical friend when necessary.

Attention to detail, diligence, resilience, dexterity and professionalism are a hallmarks of Michelle’s 'modus operandi', setting her apart as a confident, competent leader and manager.  Combine this with her polished relationship management skills and you have the consummate professional!

WOWW! is worldwide

Michelle Hoskin designs innovative solutions which are proven to overcome the challenges most commonly faced by financial services professionals.

As a member of The Professional Speaking Association, she regularly presents to financial services professionals all over the globe, inspiring her audiences with the ideas and thoughts she shares.

Regulation, products and institutions may differ, but Michelle's professional desire to deliver 'WOWW!' knows no geographical boundaries!

In all of her travels, it continues to amaze Michelle that, regardless of the country that she is in and regardless of the size of their practice or their book of business; planners, advisors and agents continue to strive to deliver to the highest levels of professional best practice BUT the problem is... they often don't know how!

Inspired by the professionals she has had the opportunity to meet, Michelle has carefully crafted a range of presentations and workshops all of which promise to deliver punchy, straight-to-the-point ideas and strategies to 'hit the spot' for businesses and individuals at every stage of their professional journey.

Financial services is one of the most technically trained and talented professions in the world but there is still very little support on how to run and manage a ‘best practice business’.

As a result, many firms suffer from the same day-to-day challenges:

  • A lack of practice management guidelines, operational procedures and a unique house style
  • Under-resourced, inadequately skilled and poorly trained support staff
  • Poor team/people management, leadership and development skills
  • Inefficient workflow and task management methods and systems
  • Ineffective time and diary management.

To succeed, personally and professionally, you need to eliminate these challenges or, even better, prevent them from happening in the first place.

Best practice can only be achieved by creating a structured and supportive environment in which each individual can create an amazing experience for their clients!

The time to act is now – not tomorrow or the day after: NOW!

First published in 2012 and revised in 2015, Michelle Hoskin’s book is packed with hints and tips. Best Practice Makes Perfect is a little gem!
