Ben Walker CA
Founder & CEO
Ben Walker founded Inspire CA at the age of 23 with nothing but a borrowed printer, a laptop and a simple idea: what if, instead of just doing tax and reporting on history, accountants could give game changing advice that could help people write a better future for their business and their family?
Four years on, Inspire CA has been showcased as a global example of what an Accounting firm should be, thanks to Ben’s disruptive approach to throwing out timesheets & charging by the hour, his challenge of the traditional 'old school’ model of the accounting industry and belief that Accountants change lives.
Ben is a winner of the coveted Anthill Online 30under30 award for 2014, was named a finalist in the Brisbane Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards and has been featured in many publications including the Courier Mail, Small Business Big Marketing Podcast with Tim Reid, Brisbane Business News & B Mag.
Today, while he continues to lead Inspire CA as CEO & Founder, Ben’s goal is to inspire others create a business that gives them the freedom to put family first and to make a positive difference in the world.
Partner & Business Advisor
If Ben is the Accountant, Harvee is the Entrepreneur...
Harvee’s first business was at age 12 mowing neighbourhood lawns and then 5 years later saved enough to buy his first investment property.
He started his second business at 18 as a scaffolder, and 5 years later built it into a large construction training and labour hire company with 20+ employees.
Wanting to ‘get off the tools’, Harvee started his next journey as a part time intern in an accounting firm, while studying accounting at QUT.
Over the next 5 years, he helped build a change management consulting firm which helped some 600 Accounting Firms around Australia have a more positive impact in their clients lives, and later floated on the ASX.
That’s where he met Ben Walker - The Founder of Inspire CA.
Today, while he continues to lead the Inspire team as GM, Harvee’s goal is to inspire others create a business that gives them the freedom to put family first and to make a positive difference in the world.
Harvee is a TEDx speaker and also the founder of Accountants For Good - a global movement that disrupts a very ‘old school’ accounting industry.
