An Insider's view of Inspirant Group

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started as a contractor working with clients. After a year, I was offered a full-time position as the Head of Marketing and jumped at the chance to join this team. The leadership team recognized my potential outside of the work I was doing and took a chance on letting me explore it.

Len

Head of Marketing

What is your vision for the company?

The vision for the company is very clear in our mind - to disrupt the consulting industry, bring experienced consultants (we prefer "Unconsultants") that are focused solely on the client and provide a working environment that enables and empowers entrepreneurs.

Amir

Founder & CEO

What makes someone successful on your team?

Have the mindset that while it may not be my fault, I’ll do whatever it takes to solve it. Ask questions. Don’t pretend to know something you don’t. Look for improvements.

Director
