Steve Harris

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.


Kane Laurence

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.


Wes Burrage-Jones

Commercial Finance Director, ReAssure

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!

Why choose us?

We've all been senior finance leaders, but our unique approach to finance business partner training comes from our direct experience working outside of finance and being partnered by finance. When you work with us you get us, no-one else.


Andy Shambrook

Founder & Managing Partner

I used to be a finance director and thought I had cracked the code on finance business partnering. Then I became a sales director and saw a whole new perspective.

I developed our unique approach based on my experience working in sales and marketing and being partnered by finance.

Andrew 5's-6

Andrew Jepson

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.

I designed and run Australia's most popular public finance business partner training course, plus I wrote the book 'Compliance to Commercial'.


Iain Dewson

Partner, North America

When I moved from finance to L&D to lead a global finance training Academy I saw finance through a different lens.

I joined The Finance Business Partner in 2019 to help develop and deliver global development programmes integrated into the wider L&D strategy.

April 1, 2019

80-90% plus of what FBPs do is not finance business partnering. Why? Because it’s reporting, forecasting or budgeting. Which are FP&A activities. Soon to be largely taken over by robots.
