Finance Business Partner Training
Who is it for?
For individuals and small teams
We offer a new type of finance business partner training you’ve never seen before. We show your employees everything we learned in sales and marketing that we wish we’d known when we were finance directors.
With our options, you’ll build a full in-house training program for all levels, including Advance for analysts and managers, NEXTFD for future leaders. We ignite development plans, capability frameworks, video lessons, live Zoom workshops, insights psychometrics, and 1:1 coaching options. You can build the perfect academy with our training programs. And everything’s done online (with optional in-person). It’s easy and fast to roll out – you could literally start next week!

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!
