“Since the moment that our contact at CIMA introduced us to Future finance Training we haven’t looked back. As an organisation that doesn’t always do things in a standardised manner, we have taken our brief to the team and they have always had suitable content that can be customised to deliver the training needs of our organisation. Making it easy for us as an organisation to develop customised programs.
The 2 trainers that we have worked with, we have found to be incredibly inspiring and even on the driest of topics have been able to deliver content in a way that our end users have found engaging, bringing in their real world experience and extensive knowledge of topics, to help bring the content to life. This has then been taken back to the business and enabled us to be more cohesive as a finance function on the topics delivered.
I would not hesitate in recommending them to another company who is looking to deliver high quality finance training.”
