Peak District and Derbyshire

Jill Turner

The network leader for the Peak District and the Derbyshire Dales is Jill Turner. Principal of Jill Turner Associates, an holistic financial planning and wealth management practice, Jill draws on twenty six years of experience in helping people to protect their loved ones, manage risk and achieve their financial goals.

Enjoying life in the Peak District with her two children, Jill reads widely around issues of self development, enjoys a Ted Talk or two, has a massive collection of global grooves and her interest in broadcasting took her to Borneo to attend the Rainforest world music festival, by invitation of the Malaysian government.

Jill’s new FREE network is called “Think Outside – The Entrepreneurial Walks” and combines networking activities with walks through the beautiful Peak District. “The great outdoors requires very little of us”, she says, “other than showing up. So leave your stresses behind and put your computer into sleep mode. Come and THINK OUTSIDE, share your successes, ideas and creative problem solving with like-minded women.”

As people are walking all the time in the same spot a path appears – John Locke.
