Meet Ali

This is my fourth year with Inspire and it has been an unbelievable growth experience for me. I had joined with minimal experience as an Accountant and within a short period of 6 months, having been thrown in the ‘deep end’, I was able to exceed my own expectations with my portfolio growing faster than I could keep up. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Everyday is unique here at Inspire and there is so much to get excited about. In my role, I have the pleasure of building a unique relationship with each client; getting to know their family, their kids, their lives, it’s a very intimate relationship. I’m so invested in my clients’ lives, I’m border-lining as a Psychologist. Jokes aside, every situation and family circumstance is unique.

My role encompasses thinking about where they’re at now, where they were before and where they want to be in the future.

I am married to my gorgeous wife, Beck, and we have both undeniably caught the travel bug. We especially crave experiences and destinations that are beyond our comfort zones. Being open to new horizons, experiencing new cultures and cuisines is what I find most captivating about travel.

If you don’t find me travelling, my favourite recreational activity is football. My favourite team is FC Barcelona and my favourite player (though he’s retired) would still be Ronaldinho de Assis Moreira.

What is your favourite thing about working at Inspire?

The supportive environment – there is so much independence and integrity at Inspire which forms the foundation of our culture here. If something needs to be done, whether it’s within the scope of your role or not, if you have the capacity to do it, you do it. Everyone here has adopted that mindset and it’s so comforting knowing that you can always rely on each other to take initiative.

How did you get interested in accounting?

Initially, I had wanted to be an IT engineer. However, after the world had experienced the GFC, my natural thoughts were that accountants would be in demand. As I was just 17 at the time, taking on accounting wasn’t a concrete plan and had many exit strategies in mind had I not enjoyed it. Gratefully, I had found accounting came very naturally, 8 years later I’m still in this industry and loving it.

What is one of the biggest impacts you’ve made?

I feel that my biggest impact is having had a direct impact in helping the team at Inspire as well as our clients grow. Everyone is at different stages in life, both personally and professionally. I’ve been very fortunate to contribute to the growth of the people around me as well as our clients with my experience and expertise.

What are some books you recommend?

I’d say the Harry Potter series has always been one of my all time favourites. If I was to give a single book, I personally think ‘1984 by George Orwell’ is written impeccably.

Which Sustainable Development Goal(s) do you choose and why?

I’d have to choose climate action and gender inequality. Having come from Bahrain, right before our eyes, we can see the negligence of the environment unfold in real time.

Bahrain having a male dominant country has also seen that gender equality has created an abundance of societal problems. Everyone deserves equal opportunity.

I’ve been working at Inspire for almost a year now and it has been an amazing experience for me as an SMSF accountant. I work closely with Ali, Head of Product and Quality Assurance to assist our team and clients with their Super Funds. My primary objective is to help business owners save tax proactively and develop effective strategies. It brings me joy to educate them on what is the right amount to withdraw, where to invest, and how to generate higher returns.

My journey with Inspire has been remarkable. We prioritise family, which is why we encourage a work-life balance. During weekends, I enjoy spending quality time with my wonderful husband and lovely daughter.

What I appreciate most about working at Inspire is the peace of mind it provides. The positive work environment here prevents me from feeling too exhausted at the end of the day.

The most rewarding aspect of my job is helping clients effectively manage their finances, including debt management, wealth growth, and generational wealth. It is fulfilling to assist them with this responsibility and provide guidance to ensure they can overcome their financial challenges.

I take pride in being a mother to my daughter, Alisha, and a loving wife to my husband, Asesh. Whenever we can, we take our daughter to different parks, and it brings us great joy to see her happy and enjoying her childhood.

My daughter has a sweet tooth, so in my free time, I enjoy baking treats with her help. It’s a fun activity that we both enjoy, and we love to share the sweets we make with others. When I have some alone time, I indulge in binge-watching Netflix.

How did you get interested in accounting?

During my studies, I found a passion for numbers and helping people with their accounting needs. To me, accounting is the primary language for any business. This is why I chose Commerce as my first choice – to assist people and businesses with their accounting requirements.

What is your favourite thing about working at inspire?

To be completely honest, the culture is what stands out to me. At Inspire, there is a strong emphasis on developing employees’ skills and aligning them with the company’s goals. I appreciate the freedom given to express my opinions, and it’s admirable how everyone is approachable and receptive to feedback, both personally and professionally.

What is one of the biggest impacts you’ve made?

I have received numerous expressions of gratitude for my work with Super Funds. As a committed SMSF Accountant at Inspire, I take pride in the commendable work I’ve done thus far. My work ethic revolves around being proactive and working efficiently. To enhance the team’s SMSF workload, one of my goal is to update the spreadsheet, which has been a backlog for some time.

What are some books, movies, podcasts, and TV you recommend?

One of my favourite movies that was adapted from a book is “The Pursuit of Happyness” by Chris Gardner and Quincy Troupe. If my daughter were to ask for a movie recommendation, I would definitely suggest this one.

 

What I love most about the movie is how the main character perseveres through his struggles and demonstrates incredible determination. It’s a powerful lesson about surviving life’s challenges and never giving up. I hope to impart this attitude to my daughter and see her embody the same determination.

Which Sustainable Development Goal(s) do you choose and why?

I would choose to support Quality Education as I firmly believe it is the fundamental public service. Additionally, it plays a significant role in achieving other Sustainable Development Goals such as Gender Equality, Poverty Alleviation, and more.
