I’m currently approaching my first year at Inspire. I’ve learnt significantly more in my short time here than my previous roles and business acumen has improved so much. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the process of working directly with clients rather than through Managers, or a lengthy chain of command, cutting through the red tape as it were.
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 focussed 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 spending time with my stunning partner, Caroline. We enjoy hiking, immersing ourselves in nature and just recently have loved discovering the beauty within antique stores.
As I have a lot of family in southern Italy, I hold a lot of pride for the heritage, the culture, the history, the food… everything Italian. You can often find me exploring and indulging in the local Italian gems within Brisbane.
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 well being 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 debt of $80,000 and through continuous persistence and hours of back and forth with the ATO, I was able to reduce it to NIL. It was a critical moment for the business; that debt would have sent them under and it was so gratifying and so rewarding.
What are some books you’d recommend?
2 books come to mind. ‘Almost Perfekt’ by David Crouch and ‘The school of life’ by Alaine d batton.
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.
