Any Questions?

The two founding partners that Inspired the vision of the B Inspired Group are Brett Bourgon and Stan Besko; so it seemed only fitting to have a name that reflected the vision of the founding partners. We wanted to convert our positive leadership experiences and successes in Finance into an offer to market, and Inspire businesses through Finance development.

No. We do have a number of ecosystem partners that we can recommend for your personal investments and taxation. Although we have CPAs working at B Inspired Finance, the focus is on helping small businesses and start-ups grow profitably, and helping finance professionals strengthen their leadership skills through development plans and coaching. Our offering that overlays onto both of those missions is Finance Transformation, which focuses on taking your finance organization to the next level through reporting automation, structure and business partnering.

No, but we will be happy to recommend you to one of our ecosystem partners that specialize in those areas. We are primarily focused on what we do extremely well – helping finance organizations and small business leaders.

Our Virtual CFO offer is scalable and is tailored to your requirements as well as the size of your business. Some of the more common services we’ve seen high demand for (Sales Compensation plans, Sales Forecast management, Annual Financial planning) are stand-alone services.

We will meet with you and assess your needs. If you have a typical annual review process that measures performance and sets annual goals, we highly recommend the Me3 program as it delivers a focused development plan that is monitored effectively for high impact. If you feel comfortable with your team’s development structure but understand the high impact of 1:1 coaching for all skill levels on your team, we’d highly recommend our 1:1 RCC certified corporate coaches. Our key differentiator is our experience in finance – we are coaching roles that we both have held, managed, and developed. We have walked a few miles in the shoes of your finance team, combining this experience with the RCC designation is why we should be your first choice for coaching and development.

Coaching is about leadership development and is suited to those that are perceived to be low performers needing guidance, as well as high potential employees that are ready to get to the next level (and everyone in between). We absolutely have coached some people struggling in their careers and got them back on track, but we’ve also taken high potential employees that needed to take the time to focus on their growth and development to reach that full potential. How many Ferrari owners decide to skip their tune-ups and scheduled maintenance because the car is operating great?

We are focused on efficiency of the finance operation and growth of the team. We have partnered with SiSense to ensure a BI tool is in place to take away the inefficient reporting tasks that are present in an Excel based reporting environment. Once the team has the capacity to focus on value-add services they become business partners driving critical analysis, insights and decision making. If you need outside help increasing the efficiency and productivity of your finance team give us a call. If you need a global restructuring than we’d recommend calling EY or Deloitte. With the world moving to AI, how is it possible so many finance organizations are stuck manually producing reports still in Excel?

Our company is registered to King City, however given the virtual capabilities of our approach and tools, we are able to service customers throughout Canada and United States. We are able to deliver content, manage processes and meet with customers throughout these countries.

The two partners are located in King City and Toronto.

Our combined experience has put us in positions – both contributor and manager – in Finance, Sales, Operations and Strategy. The nature of our roles and the diversity of our collaborative approaches has allowed us to operate within the operational and executive levels of companies, thereby providing us depth and breadth of executing against strategy. Our offer to market builds off on our knowledge of aligning finance capabilities with strategic and operational priorities.
