Aspiring FDs


Aspiring FDs is a 6 month development programme designed to help financial professionals operate successfully at board level.  

The Aspiring FDs programme is for high-potential finance leads running finance teams in growth recruitment businesses who want to take a step up into genuine board level positions, whilst also creating strong, external peer networks.  The programme is hosted in central London and delivered in six half-day modules.

I believe it’s down to Paul and the Aspiring FDs course that two weeks before the conclusion of the course, I was promoted to finance director.
