Trusted Within Our Profession
As well as our own programs, we have also designed and delivered customised 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 seven years and counting.
And we’re all members of either ICAEW, CAANZ, or CIMA.
We’ve Seen Both Sides
We don’t run finance courses. Your people are already good accountants. We work from our direct experience and not from textbooks. What’s more, we don’t offer you theories. Instead, we offer simple, practical, easy-to-use tools that work in all situations, and they work fast.
We’ve been senior finance leaders; however, our unique approach to finance business partner courses comes from our direct experience leading sales and marketing teams and being partnered by finance.
Our In-House Advance Finance Business Partner Courses
We’ll show you everything we’ve learned in sales and marketing that we wish we’d known when we worked in finance.
This course is perfect for all setups. We’ll stretch your people with capability surveys, on-demand video lessons, live Zoom application workshops, and INSIGHTS. We’ve covered all the bases.
In this course, you’ll learn how to build relationships, turn data into insights, and bring numbers to life. All the content from our flagship in-house FBP Advance is customised for your team.
FBP Ignite Development Plan
You can start with the FBP Ignite online survey to see where you sit against our 16 behaviours of World Class FBPs. We use the results of this to customise the rest of the program for you. And you can take it again at the end to measure improvement and to set new development goals.
Seven On-Demand Video Lessons
You’ll learn the principles, tools, and models in over seven hours of on-demand video lessons. With case studies, examples, and self-study exercises, you can go at your own pace. All the content from FBP Advance is available as a stand-alone video FBP On Demand course that’s perfect for individuals and teams.

What We Show You
Data is only meaningful when it tells a story. This is what makes it memorable and inspirational, and we’ll show you how to do this. The best way to bring numbers to life and tell the story behind them is not to use any numbers, and we’ll show you how.

Why Choose Our Finance Business Partner Courses?
First, we’ve trained over 7,000 FBPs in over 200 companies around the world, all within the past seven years. We’ve taken our proven in-house model and made it available to the public.
We start with a quick online survey against our 16 behaviours of World Class FBPs. The reason is that you have to know where you are now before you’re able to decide where to go next.
Learning is effective when broken down into smaller pieces, with time between to do it in reality. We run your FBP Advanced between 7 to 10 weeks, and it’s all conveniently online.
You’ll learn by doing it rather than through slides and group discussions. And you’ll learn how to take your influence to the next level through INSIGHTs, a 90-minute, live online workshop. You’ll learn to understand your communication style, strengths, and the value you bring to the team.
With our options, you can build a full in-house training program at all levels. And everything is online, so it’s easy and fast to roll out. Our finance business courses are for teams of any size, from large organisations to small businesses and everything in between.
Your team will learn more than theories—they’ll receive practical, easy training and tools that work in all situations.
We take a different approach to finance business partner courses.
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!
