Hi, I’m Rob Whitwood, a qualified accountant since 1999 and Fellow Member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants with 15 years senior finance experience as Finance Director and Chief Financial Officer, and 10 years as a Business Consultant.
For 9 years I ran my own social enterprise helping aspirations of young people in East Anglia. We worked with over 6000 young people a year, raising £150,000 in grant funds, and mobilising a community of over 600 volunteers ranging from micro business owners, to representatives from some of the largest brands in the UK like Premier Inn, Balfour Beatty, Center Parcs, RAF, AVIVA and many more.
Over a 9-year period we won 19 awards for our community work nationally, regionally and locally, and established ourselves as one of the leading Careers Education companies in our region.
I’m now utilising my knowledge, skills and experience to help non-profits all over the globe.
Although most of our charity work is UK based, my team and I have supported organisations in the UK & Ireland, Europe, United States, South America, Canada, Australia, Africa, Middle East and beyond.
We’ve worked across a wide variety of charitable sectors, from those working with BAME communities, to education to end of life support.
Be Inspired Today is a social enterprise, and our mission is to help others make an impact in their community.
Our profits are redistributed back in to the community in the form of grants to help other individuals who maybe have an idea to make a social impact, but as yet, can’t afford to show the potential. These grants are offered through competitions through the year.
We strive for honest, ethical working and here’s what people have to say:
“Rob was excellent to work with, quick to respond and very knowledgeable and helpful, will use again most definitely.”
