FBP Ignite development plan

We use the results of this to tailor the rest of the programme, plus you take it again at the end to measure improvement and set new onoing development goals.

What it’s all about

What we show you

Imagine finance had written MLKs speech…

“We see a 24.5% average income equality gap at current inflation levels, expected to expand at a compound rate of 3.2% per annum.”

Inspired? Me neither. He actually said:

“I have a dream”

Data is meaningless without emotion, and we’ll show you how to add it to your numbers.

Imagine finance had written JFK’s speech…

“We choose to travel 238,855 miles at 25,000 miles per hour to the second densest known satellite with which we are in synchronous rotation”

Inspired? Me neither. He actually said:

“We choose to go to the moon”

If you want to be a great FBP or FD you’d better get good at communicating, and you’d better get good at it quick. We’ll show you how.

Why Advance?

Live virtual workshops

So much online training today is little more than a narrated Powerpoint slideshow – boring!

Because we’ve covered the core content in the on-demand videos, our live workshops are dedicated to group exercises to apply the learning.

Your people will be trying the tools on for size, in tailored exercises that will stretch their thinking and help them apply the learning to their role today!


We don’t learn by reading or listening. We learn by doing, and that’s what the 7 x 2 hour live Zoom workshops are all about. Doing it for real, well almost for real.


Add our INSIGHTS® psychometrics package to your FBP Advance and attend an extra 2 x 90 minute live virtual workshops to show them how to maximise their new FBP learning. It really does add a lot!


We’re showing people the best influencing tools from the Worlds of sales and marketing. It’s new to everyone from analyst to CFO, so we create a safe environment so that people can test them out and get to grips with them before doing them for real at work.


We’ll set at least 3 exercises per 2 hour workshop, tailored to your business situation. People will be set a typical business problem, work in groups to apply the tools from the videos, and present back the solutions.


We use Zoom, simply because the breakouts rooms are awesome. Teams are rolling it out slowly, but until it’s universally available it’s just not worth using it for training. 

The team

Your hosts

We’ve been finance directors, but you probably know enough about finance already. So we’ll show you what we learned in sales and marketing that we wish we’d learned when we were in finance.
