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 for 10 years and counting.

Oh and by the way, we are all members of either ICAEW 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 in 2014, followed by Iain. Since then we’ve become business partners and friends.

In 2020 we moved online and expanded our global offer. We now have a close group of facilitators which can cover just about any timezone. We’ve got Paula in APAC, Damian in the Middle East and Oli in Europe.

We are proud of what we do, and we never forget why we are doing it.
