As a consultant, I like Impact's programmes because every one of our projects could make the participants think deeply about their issues in the workplace, and move forward for their business success. I am excited when exploring a solution for my clients' current and future business challenges. Besides my job, I like cooking, travelling, fine arts, musicals, Japanese KABUKI, opera etc.
Having joined Impact Japan in 1993, my main role is company cook and carpenter. I cook lunch every couple of months by request. As carpenter, I work on refurbishing our office and equipment used in our projects. I occasionally join our delivery team to offer technical support on programmes. I have experience facilitating for Sony, Canon, Japan rail and more, plus Eclipse management for sales and delivery. My hobby is down river kayaking.
Analogue at birth, digital by design. I head up Impact's social media, website and newsletter "In Good Company", based in our London office. What excites me at work is bringing Impact's unique brand and tone of voice to life in all things online. I love travelling so you'd mostly find me not at home.
As a Programme Manager I am responsible for the end-to-end implementation of our client solutions by managing and coordinating the client service teams. During my time at Impact I have worked with a broad mixture of clients and participants ranging from graduates to senior leaders. In my free time I enjoy spending time in the Lakes, planning my next holiday and spending time with friends and family.
I started at Impact as a shed stainer. I now spend most of my time in those glorified sheds as part of the operations team. We lead on the adventurous aspects of programme delivery and design whilst managing H&S, logistics, and transport. I spent 2016 with the great team in Manly, Sydney. The beaches and surfing was pretty good too. I enjoy the four seasons, pina coladas, long walks on the beach and my dog, Darcie, who occasionally listens to me.
I am an enthusiastic trainer and consultant, keen on applying theory, practical application and innovation to the development of others. I have been working in the learning and organisational development since 1996 and joined Impact in 2019 as account, lead designer and facilitator. I pride myself on my original, inclusive and enthusiastic style.
I co-founded Impact in 1980 to explore adventure and experiential learning in people development. It worked! We now inspire and develop people worldwide. Shared values, a common purpose and a spirit of adventure bind us together. With over 200 colleagues working in the UK, Europe, America and Asia Pacific, we have a solid reputation for enabling clients to build leadership capacity and navigate complex change. To stay grounded, I rear rare breed cattle and sheep.
I'm passionate about organizational psychology and behavior and joined Impact after years of experiences in global business. I was inspired by the way Impact uses unique adventurous, experiential learning solutions, and now am passionate to help clients achieve real improvements in performance as a consultant. When I am not at work, you can find me walking around the city with my camera.
I rely on both my unbridled curiosity and appetite for knowledge and exploration in my pursuit for continuous improvement. As an ambassador of the Impact brand, I harness this mindset to work effectively with my colleagues to increase our brand awareness and build mindshare in the marketplace. In my spare time, you can find me in the mountains skiing, hiking, and fly fishing with my wife and hound dog.
I love being able to bring passion and experience to serve clients in some of the world's most progressive organisations - enabling leaders to perform to their best. I'm told I have an engaging and inquisitive style that connects easily and am particularly effective at getting people to see the wider context. I enjoy adventure and love nothing more than heading off to explore the wilderness with family and friends or tackling an unusual sporting challenge.
For over 22 years, as a consultant, coach and partner, I support leaders, teams and organizations in the process of change. I am an "educational gadget-head.", sharing what I learn with others, because of my passion for people development. Privately my husband and I run “No Kill” fishing-field, building a community of exceptional people.
I love the Lake District, working with people and my role as an account manager. I build and maintain strong, long lasting customer relationships and ensure successful solution delivery, specific to the individual needs of my range of clients. I endeavour to always exceed expectations and go the extra mile in all aspects of my life. Outside of work I love travel, food and rugby - which I can normally combine for a perfect weekend away!
As an Account Director with Impact I’m able to leverage my ten years of Business Development and Account Management experience. I thrive in environments where I am able to develop and uncover new opportunities with partners and businesses. Most of all I am a people person and love building trusting relationships. In my spare time, you will find me spending time with my husband, two boys and our dog.
Developing the potential in people and organisation is my passion – it’s not my job! I love what I do and have the good fortune to work in Poland as an ex-pat British person and have been embraced into and fully embrace the wonder of Poland and the Polish people. Working with Top Teams in the wide range of multi-national and national organisations whom we are proud to call “customers”.

I’m passionate about learning and helping people get the best out of themselves. I spent over 10 years in Learning & Development with a Fortune 15 company helping develop and deliver programs to Executives, Middle Management, and Aspiring Leaders from all different parts of the business. I believe that understanding and leveraging diversity is one of the biggest strengths of any organization and I really enjoy helping groups work towards that reality.
I am responsible for the smooth running of the office and providing support to our close-knit team. With a background in design and marketing, I apply creatively to all facets in particular the development of presentations and proposals. I am passionate about health and well-being, practising yoga daily and surrounding myself with positive people which Is why I love working for Impact.
Since joining Impact Thailand in 2006, I have been more energetic and enthusiastic to come to work. It is the best workplace that I can be myself. Everyday at work is great for me.

Change is my partner in business and life. “Be better” is my inspiration to continue to grow. I joined Impact 20 years ago and have worked in many different roles as a consultant, general manager, coach and business developer from offices in Europe and Asia. In my current role I am responsible for supporting business in Poland and Central Europe and I am also co-creating with clients cultural transformation solutions.
I have the privileged position of sourcing our clever and creative talent pipeline. I assist with inductions and support managers in ensuring our people are happy and our policies are in place. Outside of work my teenagers and beautiful boxer dogs keep me busy. I enjoy cycling, piloxing, yoga and photography.
I love the variety of my role, working with global clients on complex projects and learning from inspiring Impact people, no two days are the same. I’m responsible for the quality of customer service, building excellent client relationships, providing commercial strategies with meticulous project scoping and planning, alongside first class solution delivery and evaluation. I love the outdoors; walking, running or camping with our two boys and crazy cocker spaniel.
In all my work, I am driven by a profound interest in what moves and motivates people. I believe that everybody can make significant improvements through continuous self-exploration. I deliver individual coaching, workshops and training programs with the focus of increasing the potential of Senior Managers and High Potentials and developing their team leadership skills as well as helping them with behavioural change initiatives which naturally bring along performance impro
Working with Impact allows me to cross-germinate ideas and learnings between clients globally. In an ever-changing, dynamic business environment, I promote everyone to be designers of possibilities.
