But don’t take our word for it!

We caught up with some of our special guests to share their experience and what they thought about the event.

What finance pros loved about FP&A Summit London

Before we dive into the testimonials, let's set the scene on what made our FP&A Summit in London a hit among finance professionals.

It wasn't just the cutting-edge topics or the stunning backdrop of London that stole the show. It was the vibrant energy, the shared passion for finance and planning, and the genuine connections made that truly set this event apart.

Attendees were buzzing about the deep-dive sessions on business partnering, where real-world examples brought to life the art of influencing and collaborating across departments.

The discussions on applying AI in finance were a particular highlight, with finance pros getting a first-hand look at how technology is reshaping forecasting, reporting, and decision-making in new and exciting ways. 

But it wasn't all tech and tactics.

The summit also provided invaluable budgeting insights, from innovative approaches to resource allocation to strategies for navigating economic uncertainty.

These conversations weren't just theoretical; they were grounded in practical advice that attendees could take back to their teams and implement immediately.

Alright, that’s enough from us! Let's hear directly from some of the attendees about their experiences and takeaways from the summit.

Eric Adam, Director of FP&A, Insulet Corporation:

“I think it was an amazing day, what I really enjoyed was having so many diverse backgrounds with extremely skilled profiles. I think you did an amazing job bringing all those people together.
“I really enjoyed the format of the session as well. I think there was a right balance between having presentations and having those sessions where people could share and get to know each other. So, I think it was really successful.”


Thomas Auster, Head of Finance, GuestReady Ltd:

“It’s been really great. We're right in the middle of budgeting right now. So, it's good to be re-energized and get a lot of insights from some key individuals and learn a lot more about FP&A during this busy time.”

What were the key takeaways from FP&A Summit London?

After the dust settled on an incredible FP&A Summit in London, we were eager to catch up with our attendees to find out what resonated most with them. 

The event was packed with insights, innovations, and inspiring conversations, and we wanted to know what stood out, what sparked ideas, and what they were taking back to their desks and teams.

Here's what they had to say.👇

Jasmine Cheng, Finance Manager, GuestReady Ltd:

“I learned a lot! I especially enjoyed the tips on how to become an effective business partner and collaborating with the other teams.
"It’s really nice to know that I'm not the only person who struggles to collaborate with people from different teams. I got some practical tips shared by many experts here.”


Eric Adam, Director of FP&A, Insulet Corporation:

“I think there are loads of important takeaways from this day about business partnering. What I personally took away is that there are different ways to adapt. One is about your personal attitudes, how you adapt yourself, your communication and your style to better work with the business.
“The second one, I will say really is about how you improve what you're building in terms of visuals and using different types of content in order to better serve the business. And I will say there was an important aspect as well about technology, the topic of AI of course, but tools and how these tools can be leveraged to drive better efficiency and business partnering.”
