Simon Hall - Director of Maplebrook Wills
Great Companies: Please tell me something about the business and how did you come up with such an idea?
Simon Hall: Legacy Planning wasn't something that was on the top of my career preferences, however some external changes that I had experienced within my previous business made it difficult for me to continue so I had to reconsider my options. Having the majority of m y career based on people facing roles, Legacy Planning was a perfect way to utilise my skill set and career experience.
Great Companies: What are the various services and products provided by your company?
Simon Hall: The majority of my work is around Wills, 54% of the adult population in England and Wales don't have one. Furthermore I also cover Lasting Powers of Attorney, Trusts, Funeral Plans and Landlord Planning.
Great Companies: Why should one choose you over others in this field?
Simon Hall: I strongly believe that I have the ability to connect with people from all different backgrounds, cultures, ages etc. It is a personal experience where I endeavour to put the client at ease and enable them to discuss a very sensitive subject openly.
Great Companies: What are the struggles and challenges you face?
Simon Hall: I wouldn't necessarily say that I face direct struggles and challenges. It's understandable that not everyone will wish to use my services, I'm not here for them, I'm here for those who have the need and wish to take professional advice.
Great Companies: What do you think are the few main things which are most important for a successful business?
Simon Hall: Commitment, belief, patience and a plan.
