Since 2006 I have coordinated programme delivery. This involves meeting facilitators and consultants to design great modules, using creativity to ensure participants have profound learning experiences that add value to their organisation. I manage project set up and use technical skills such as abseil belaying. I have a teaching licence to teach PE. Now I enjoy working using my body, so I love to do exercise and jogging, swimming, gymnastics, and most outdoor things!
I help people gain insights into themselves and their team so they can improve as individuals and work more effectively together. As a facilitator I create the right learning environment and work alongside participants providing a balance of challenge and support. I bring over 20 years of senior leadership experience. I love learning, the outdoors and am fascinated with horses. I live on a small farm with my wife and two teenage children, and a herd of horses.
I'm passionate about communicating Impact's brilliant uniqueness and driving brand awareness through integrated marketing campaigns. I love building relationships with clients face-to-face when delivering events like Learnfest and via curating print and digital communications like Feedback magazine. Always enthusiastic and creative, I live for learning, arts, adventures, travel and cake!
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.
Find a job you love and you will never work a single day in your live! I do everything from managing the business, to inspiring people and helping clients to develop as sustainable business in which the quality of leadership is crucial. People describe me as a passionate and fast moving person, able to quickly connect to the culture and the needs of each organisation and to co-design powerful solutions. I love adventure which is about saying “yes” to life.
I design projects to bring the Sustainable Development Goals to life and to get them into every programme we deliver. Globally. Universal in nature and relevant for all, the SDGs tackle the biggest issues facing our planet and everyone on it. I sit in the consultant team, support our Community Action Learning function and the wider Global Responsible Leadership Team and I’m the Impact UK representative for UNGC. I love running in the fells.
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 always enjoyed working for companies who share my values and whose work I can be passionate about. I love that Impact wants to make a difference and has the purpose to help build companies worth working for. I enjoy a good adventure and have a passion for travelling, my latest adventure being swapping London life for the great outdoors of the lovely Lake District!
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.
Analogue at birth, digital by requirement. I don’t do Facebook, and have nothing to do with hashtags. Is this bio going online? Eurgh! I am an eye-to-eye, face-to-face human being. I elevate small talk to medium talk. Then, (on a good day) to infinity and beyond. That’s my job. Favourite pastimes: Good days. Woodland crafts, festivals, and campfires. Specialist skills: Reading body language; parallel parking.
Over the past 16 years at Impact I've worked around the world with some truly wonderful people. I've been the lead facilitator on many large-scale initiatives focused on developing leadership capability, high performing teams and coaching. I love the outdoors, and spend many hours at the beach with my wife and daughter.
After several years in the digital marketing industry I was keen to utilise my management skills and develop our in-house fully-integrated digital marketing agency, Zinco. Outside of work I’m a crafty creative but will quite happily swap cosy fireside afternoons for long, sunny walks with my trusty Labrador Saffy.
Originally from the UK, over 25 years I’ve held Impact leadership roles in Asia and America whilst partnering with clients to fulfil their ambitions. My focus is creating organisations where people thrive and have the motivation to generate greater success - to do great work that connects people to things that matter. I'm always looking for the next adventure on a bike, in the sea or mountains. In work and play my passions are being adventurous, ambitious and real.
I was inspired by experiential learning on a leadership programme in 1992 and have worked for Impact ever since. Experiential learning and reflection alongside theory and skills input is a platform for real behaviour change for leaders. My passion is building an organisation worth working for and supporting our clients by developing people. I play football and enjoy discussing the match with friends. Drinking beer maybe more important than playing football.
I design, develop and manage solutions for key clients. I am passionate about helping people and businesses be at their best through practical and personal change. I love bringing innovative and challenging ideas to my work. I get my energy from time with my gorgeous family, my exciting work and my personal passion for sport and adventure.
I manage and conduct activities related to the end-to-end implementation of client solutions, sales and service. With a focus on programme delivery, I work with a range of global clients ranging from graduates to senior leaders. In my free time, you’ll catch me out and about in the Lake District, planning mad adventures and playing netball.
As a Sales Professional with extensive knowledge of account business development and client relationship management, my passion lies in building great relationships with clients and really getting to know them in order to create customised solutions that help them to achieve their goals. Outside of work you can find me in the gym, or walking the beautiful Lake District fells with my camera in tow.
Creator of Creative and Marketing Department.
I spend with Impact more than 20 years. Regardless of my role, my job was always working with people for people. I see Impact as a community of people that adds an extra value to world by building organisation worth working for and I truly believe We make a difference. Currently my main focus is to help organisations to change by creating and delivering solutions that engage people in transformation processes.
I have worked at Impact Japan since 2015, coordinating the delivery of programmes. I support our consultants and delivery operations. What makes me happy is seeing my colleagues, clients and participants smile, as my job is supporting them. My hobby is collecting Starbucks Coffee mugs from around the world, although I don’t drink coffee personally!

I’m new to Impact and to the business in general. My area of focus is “Sustainability and Responsibility” and I am passionate about using my years long experience from the non-profit sector in my present job. In addition to that I support the team in any other possible way – in translations, formatting documents, gathering data, communication with associates. I love biking, backpacking and vegan cooking.
I've enjoyed more than 11 challenging years of international work with senior leadership teams; designing & delivering innovative programmes; managing global delivery teams and coaching individuals. I'm known for an insightful and engaging style and love working in the moment with a courageous approach to challenging interventions. I love relaxing with my wife, watching my daughters perform (singing or horse riding), or sharing outdoor adventures.
