Our values 

Our core values are Freedom, Always Growing and Trust.

  • Freedom reflects our goal to create freedom of time and location as well as financial freedom for our clients, our team and our community. We live out this value by choosing not to have set office hours or work locations. We value results rather than time spent sitting in the office and we encourage our team members to control their own schedule and to choose where they live in the world.
  • Always Growing refers to our belief that we need to strive for improvement in both our business and personal lives. We encourage learning, trying new things and open and honest feedback.
  • Do the Right Thing is our third value and comes down to always doing the right thing by our team, our clients and community.

What’s next?

We have big plans for 2020 and beyond.

2017 was a period of consolidation for Bean Ninjas, as we refined our processes and built our team. Simon Pilkington came onboard as an investor at the end of 2017.

Our focus in 2018 was growth and during 2018 Wayne Richard was promoted to Partner and Global Director of Operations.

We have our sights firmly set on becoming a 7 figure business by the end of 2019.

And expanding our reach into the US in 2020.

We have big goals and we need an awesome team to help us achieve them!
