We've identified the 16 behaviours of World Class finance business partners, and we'll show you how to develop them.
Before the workshop you'll take our online assessment to benchmark you against our database. You'll get a personalised report showing you your strengths and priority areas to focus on.

Who is this for?
Do you work in finance today, and do you want to future proof your career? If so, this workshop is for you..
This is not a finance course, and the content is not financial. The content, tools and techniques come from the World of sales and marketing, and we show you how to apply them in the context of your role as a finance business partner.
This means the course is suitable for anyone who works in finance at any level. We regularly have newly qualified analysts and seasoned finance directors and even CFOs in the same room.
The tools are the same, the only difference is how you apply them in your role.
On demand video lessons
Your course includes over 7 hours of on demand video lessons. These cover the core concepts so we can focus the face-to-face workshops on interactive application with games and simulations.
You'll have access to the video courses for 12 months, giving you plenty of time to embed the learning.
7 video courses: What is FBP, Bring Numbers To Life, Turn Data To Insights, Relationships & Challenge, Influencing, Telling Stories With Data, and Telling Stories With Data
Are you dealing in data or insight?
Data answers the question what. Information answers the question why. And insight answers the questions so what, what next, how could we improve.
Automation and AI is changing finance fast, and soon the robots will tell us what happened. The future of finance is insight - helping to answer the question so what?
Future-proof your career by learning how to move away from the data and start to help non-finance answer the questions so what, what next, how could we improve?
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.
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.
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'.
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.
We love to talk about finance business partner training so drop us a line and we'll be in touch!
