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.
With 20 years of L&D and OD consulting experience my role includes everything from proposal development to managing global projects involving leadership development and change initiatives. As a strategic business partner, I help clients improve business results via custom solutions that align talent development with business drivers. On weekends I'll be cheering at my two sons' football games or riding my John Deere tractor in pursuit of the elusive perfect lawn.
I am a non-executive board member of both Impact and the National Theatre of Wales. My background is in leading technology organisations, including running global transformational change projects at Sony and Motorola. I am committed to social responsibility having led award-winning Solarcentury, the UK’s fastest growing energy company, and SunnyMoney, an organisation that distributes solar lighting in the most needy off-grid communities in Africa.
Having joined Impact UK in 1997 as a facilitator before establishing US operations in 2001, my passion lies in leading Impact’s business and partnering with clients to architect custom leadership development programs. I’m a British national, husband, father of four, outdoor enthusiast and mountaineer. I’m always seeking my next adventure, my greatest accomplishment (other than having four boys!) was summiting Everest in 2005.
As a consultant, organisational psychologist, account manager and researcher…I endeavour to encompass all the different aspects of life in the organisation! To me the organization is a magic happening between individuals, groups and their work contexts. I deal with the entire consulting process: from the proposal development, to the client management, intervention delivery and evaluation process. I love the countryside, baking cakes & capoeira!
My first Impact memory is watching managers rope-jump off bridges whilst helping out in my 1991 school holiday. My adventure continues as a part of the Americas Leadership Team leading our Consulting Services function. Clients say my style is 100% engaging and that I bring rooms to life with my passion, energy and can do attitude. I love helping others make a difference in the world, and am a passionate cyclist, runner and Dad to my two young boys.
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.
With more than 15 years of experience in business development, I continue to play to my strength in strategising and building relationships with our clients to improve their business results. I am a dragon boater. A sport where you will be physically fatigued and mentally challenged. Despite the intensity of paddling and competitive sports, we have to persevere to keep the boat moving and now, I am moving towards excellence with Impact.
Before Joining Impact in 2002 I worked as an outdoor guide for nature tourism, kayaking and trekking in the ocean and forest. Using this experience, my strengths are in creating and coordinating programmes that provide learning experiences through outdoor activities. Beyond this role I wear several different hats, such as managing our website and managing H&S. Personally, I love to do challenging journeys by sea kayak and bike in many countries.
I am a program manager located in sunny Florida. My background in hospitality gives a keen eye to being customer focused. I love that every day brings something new, whether it is supporting on a program or managing logistical details. Outside of work you’ll most likely find me running or nose deep in a book on the beach with my wife and our pup.
I consult with our valued customers to understand their business aspirations and challenges, before recommending a learning and development solution that is going to meet, and exceed their needs. I maintain close relationships to ensure they receive the best possible service. I work across all market sectors and levels, however I'm particularly passionate about graduate development. Out of work, you’ll find me up a mountain attached to either a rope of a pair of ski’s.
I look after clients from tender, right through to evaluation. Three of my four main clients are global, so it’s about managing time differences too. I am the 'go to' person for many other things as I've worked here since 1991. I'm open, honest and always have an opinion! Questions usually start with “you will know...” I like nothing more that being up a hill in the Lake District or French Alps and camping in Cornwall with family and friends.
Here at Impact I have the pleasure of managing a portfolio of impressive global programmes and a number of our key clients. I like to simplify the complex, gain clarity where there is ambiguity and drive efficiency and quality through my project teams. I love meeting different people and understanding what makes them tick! I'm full of energy, constantly smiling and always ready for the next adventure.
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.
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.
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.
At Impact I manage projects, build relationships with clients, organize events and support our super team by sharing motivation, creativity and a smile. At work and in private life, I pay attention to details, I value directness and minimalism. I am looking for inner peace through contact with nature, cinema and new hobbies. And good food.
Having worked at Impact's UK HQ and Tokyo office, I have been heading up Impact China and developing new business in China and Asia Pacific since 2009. As a professional consultant, I have over fifteen years of management experience covering strategic planning, organizational effectiveness, business development, and worldwide operational excellence. I am extensively involved in the development and delivery of talent development projects at all levels of organisations.
I was an associate for Impact for 21 years before becoming part of the full-time team. I love the sense of fun, friendship, camaraderie and the way Impact works. Oh, by the way I’m on the Technical Support Team – ropes and boats, programme design and logistics and lots of other things too. I love my job, get loads of out of it, meet lots of amazing people and learn new things all the time – how lucky am I?
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!
I am a bold and vibrant multidisciplinary graphic designer, driven by the power of communication and how a piece of design can provoke thought, emotion and action. I aim to bring energy, raise questions, push boundaries and break rules. For me, the most vital part of my life is people. People, and the relationships we hold with one another, are everything.
I bring my passion for photography and film-making to work, creating people development and marketing films. I like many types of cheese, with my favourite probably being Wensleydale with some sort of dried fruit in it. Sometimes with crackers. And chutney. Maybe a glass of wine… What was I supposed to be writing about again?
