Justin H. Barnett started his career in 1980 at Arthur Andersen in Houston, Texas. Today, he is one of the Founders of the VeraSage Institute, a think tank dedicated to teaching Value Pricing to professionals around the world, and burying the billable hour.
As a practicing accountant for the last twenty years, Justin has pioneered with his former partner Ron Baker the practice of public accounting centered on the combined disciplines of Total Quality Service and Value Pricing. He has trashed his timesheets and now co-instructs this course for those accountants who also want to be free of them: Trashing the Timesheet: A Declaration of Independence (with Ron Baker & Dan Morris).
He was quoted and used as an example in the best-selling management book ever written specifically for the accounting profession, Professional’s Guide to Value Pricing, Sixth Edition, authored by Ronald J. Baker, published by CCH. The book has been ranked #1 on amazon.com in Australia and New Zealand and has sold over 35,000 copies.
Justin speaks across the United States spreading the Value Pricing message to thousands of professionals.
He graduated in 1979 from the University of California at Berkeley with a Bachelor of Science in accounting and a minor in finance. He is the father of three and presently resides in San Rafael, California.
