What is finance business partnering?
We believe it's about 3 things: building relationships, turning data into insights and bringing numbers to life. Accountants focus on process, data and tables of numbers. Finance business partners focus on people, insights, and telling stories.
We have all been senior finance leaders but our unique finance business partner training approach comes from our experience working outside of finance and being partnered by finance.
Are you dealing in data or insight?
Data answers the question what. Information answers the question why. And insight answers the questions so what, what next, how could we improve.
Automation and AI is changing finance fast, and soon the robots will tell us what happened. The future of finance is insight - helping to answer the question so what?
What questions are you and your finance team answering?

I used to be a finance director, then I became a sales director, and I'll show your team everything I learned in sales that I wish I'd know when I worked in finance.
I founded the company in the UK in 2014, and developed our unique approach based on my personal experience. I have personally trained over 5,000 FBPs all over the World.
Partner, Asia Pacific
I've been a senior finance leader but it was when I became a general manager that I really got what finance business partnering is all about.
Based in Sydney, I designed and run Australia's most popular public finance business partner training course, plus I wrote the book 'Compliance to Commercial'.
Partner, North America
I've been a finance leader and run a global finance academy for 2,000 people across 28 countries from the L&D function.
Andy used to be a supplier of mine and I saw first-hand the positive impact on people and teams his work had. So much so that in 2019 I joined as a full-time partner to help spread the message.
