The important question
Why Choose Us?
For teams of any size
We work globally with big brands and are set up to take the strain out of designing and running big programmes. But we work with businesses of any size, so if you’ve got more than 6 people in your team get in touch!
And if you’re looking just for you, our FBP On Demand is a stand-alone video course available to buy online today and includes all the content and exercises from our in-house FBP Advance. There really is an option for everyone, whatever your budget.
Trusted by our profession
As well as our own programmes, we’ve also designed and delivered bespoke finance business partner training and leadership development all over the World on behalf of ICAEW in the UK and CAANZ in Australia and New Zealand for 7 years and counting.
Oh and by the way, we are all members of either ICAEW, CAANZ or CIMA ourselves.
We’ve seen both sides
We don’t run finance courses. Your people are good enough accountants. We all work from direct experience, not from text-books.
And we don’t give you theories, just simple, practical and easy to use tools that work in all situations and work fast!
We’ve all been senior finance leaders, but our unique approach to finance business partner training comes from our direct experience leading sales and marketing teams and being partnered by finance.
A global family company
We work globally with big companies, but you’re working with a family company.
Shelly and Andy began in the UK, followed by Iain, and Andrew Jepson is in Australia. After many years of working alone delivering finance business partner training on different sides of the World, our shared passion brought us together.
Since then we’ve become business partners and friends. We are proud of what we do, and we never forget why we are doing it.
CFO SVP, CHEP North America
Andy is a great communicator and provides a broader perspective on how finance interacts with different stakeholders and how finance could interact differently with the many business partners. I highly recommend him and his team to develop our broad finance teams.
CFO, Barts Charity
Andy worked with our finance business partner team and has transformed the way we approach the role. By emphasising the importance of relationship building and looking at things from the perspective of our stakeholders the team are now able to provide significantly better service.
FP&A Director, CMS Legal
I have worked with Andy and the team twice and have been very impressed with his ability to deliver relevant content in a way that is engaging from start to finish. Andy’s unique sales and finance background really brings something to the table and I would thoroughly recommend his expertise to develop any business partnering capability.
Group CFO, Metamorph
Andy has taken me & our team on a journey of self learning, enabling a transformation which has resulted in turning dull, low value information into insight and influence. The learning has opened our eyes to a different way of communication and we are excited to continue this journey and see what we can achieve – thanks Andy!
