Jean-Guy Talbot is passionate about coming alongside firms and companies of all sizes to help them flourish and succeed. People are quickly taken with the extensive knowledge and humor he brings to his consultation work, books and through speaking engagements across the country.
In 1983, Jean-Guy started his career in accounting working in public practice for Winnipeg firms as well as a few years in industry. He started Talbot & Associates (T&A) on a part-time basis in 1987 and grew his practice from a one-person operation to its current size of over 60 staff in seven locations across Manitoba. Nationwide, colleagues and clients now refer to Jean-Guy as both a knowledgeable mentor and friend. He has devoted a tremendous amount of research, time and energy to discover the secrets of running a better practice. He has personally implemented all he's learned and has determined which roads lead to a successful practice (and which do not). He is motivated to share this knowledge with others - especially from the perspective of someone who is still in practice. It was based on this perspective that he established RêveNew Practice Management, a unique and thriving consultation company.
In 2015 Jean-Guy led the building of a 7,000 sq.-ft training center at T&A headquarters in Winnipeg. In 2016, he received the title of Fellow CPA from CPA Manitoba for rendering exceptional services to the profession and for his achievements in his careers and community support. Off hours, Jean-Guy can be found enjoying time outdoors with his wife Lise and three kids.
