I’ve now been with Inspire for just over a year after previously spending some time as an
auditor. With Inspire, I’ve had massive amounts of exposure to a broad range of tax and
advisory practice which has helped me learn quite a lot in my short time here. I’ve thoroughly
enjoyed the process of working directly with clients rather than through Managers or a
lengthy chain of command.
The aspects of my work that fulfils me are simply putting out fires, helping a client
understand things and eliminating concerns. Providing a solution when a client feels like
there’s no solution has been so rewarding. I would say that I am more focused on looking
forwards rather than looking backwards. Tax has a long history and my passion is geared
towards the future.
Outside of Inspire
Outside of Inspire, I love getting out and about with friends and family. Most weekends are usually spent playing a bit of rugby union or enjoying the outdoors.
As I have a lot of family in southern Italy, I hold a lot of pride for the culture and try to travel over as much as I can.
What is your favourite thing about working at Inspire?
From my experience, I don’t think that there’s any other workplace that’s as supportive and close-knit as the one we have. The support network is so prevalent. Everyone genuinely cares about each other’s wellbeing and you can count on each other to extend a hand when in need. We’re all working towards the same goal, rowing in the same direction you could say, and we genuinely want the best for each other.
How did you get interested in accounting?
In school, I chose all the business subjects. Of the subjects I chose, accounting was the one that resonated with me the most and the one I found the most success in.
What is one of the biggest impacts you’ve made?
A client of ours had a significant debt and through continuous persistence and hours of back and forth with the ATO, I was able to reduce it to heavily. It was a critical moment for the business; that debt would have sent them under and this allowed us time to restructure the business.
What are some books you recommend?
2 books come to mind. ‘Almost Perfekt’ by David Crouch and ‘The school of life’ by Alaine de Botton. ‘Almost Perfekt’
Which Sustainable Development Goal(s) do you choose and why?
I’d choose sustainable cities and communities. When you look at history and you see how certain societies were built and constantly refined, I feel that the generational success of mankind is derived from the success of sustainable cities and communities.
