What is an Unconsultant?:

Inspirant Group was founded to redefine consulting. To achieve this ambitious goal, we knew we would need to have the right people on our team—experienced professionals with a common set of values that set them apart from their peers. 

We call these people Unconsultants.

un·con·​sul·​tant  [uhn-kən-ˈsəl-tᵊnt] n. :

Experienced professional with an innate ability to solve problems and an insatiable thirst for knowledge. Unconsultants demonstrate the Inspirant Group core values of “Have Integrity,” “Care About the Greater Good,” and “Get It Done.”

What’s it like working with Inspirant Group?:

We’ve been consultants and executives. We’ve been contractors and full-timers. We knew what we wanted for our own careers and have created the place we always wanted to work: collaborating with smart, caring, experienced people; a place to be in business for yourself but not by yourself. We have flexible work schedules, professional development opportunities, team bonding events, and all Unconsultants are eligible to earn sales bonuses, referral bonuses, performance bonuses.

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
