I am an experienced Web Developer, having built websites for hundreds of companies, both large and small. I enjoy the mix of technical and creative work, and helping businesses improve efficiency and revenue by realising the potential of the internet. At weekends, I am a wedding DJ in The Lake District, and enjoy spending time with my wife and two sons.
I'm based in Thailand, a country of beautiful islands, good food and nice people. I have a lot of fun working with people around the world. I have more than two decades of international finance and accounting experience. My real challenge is working with Inland Revenue offices in different countries! I love to explore the world through reading and travel and one day wish to have a little cafe where people can sit and have a coffee or few drinks and craft together.

As Marketing Specialist, I use my past experiences in start-ups and agencies to implement different marketing activities throughout the business. I am passionate about all things creative. I believe in using the power of marketing to make a difference and Impact offers a unique proposition that does exactly this. I enjoy traveling and experiencing different cultures and foods. I will never say no to a new adventure!
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’ve been working at Impact for over 30 years and now advise on Safety. It’s a demanding job, but Impact also allows me time to have my own adventures. I am a qualified International mountain guide and run yearly expeditions to East Greenland. These experiences give me a healthy dose of “on the edge” experiences, helping me to sharpen my skills and foster a common sense approach to safety matters. There's always something different to give advice on.
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”.

When taking time out of studying I knew Impact was the place for me to pursue my interest in the human mind. With leadership, change and sustainable innovation there are so many schools of thought to consider, the dominant paradigms of which are changing daily. I aim to filter all of this and use key findings to help Impact remain at the forefront of its field. As a result, I really do learn something every day!
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.
An important element of my role is entering awards for Impact and for the inspirational work we do with our clients. I also write and edit content for our weekly newsletter, 'In Good Company'. I have many years of Impact experience as well as a professional marketing qualification. I care a lot about the work I do, the people I work with and the environment around me. I love being outdoors, I love living in the Lakes and feel lucky to be bringing my family up here.
I was lucky enough to join as the third member of the US team in 2006 and have done almost every role in the business including design, delivery, sales support, project management and even bookkeeping! That breadth of experience has helped me in my current leadership role, it allows me to understand the business from multiple perspectives and focus on operational excellence. My nickname is Wiki because I can usually help find the answer!

With over 25 year experience working as a Consultant and Executive Coach specialized in People Management and in topics related to organizational development, I had the chance to come across Impact after an International experience in UAE and South Korea. Living abroad I got familar with different cultures and change. Coaching people along their transformational journey, supporting organizations throughout change is what really matters to me, my job!
In my early career I practised as an architect in the UK and Japan. This taught me a huge amount about being curious, creative and professional to solve clients' needs. For the last 18 years I've worked globally on developing innovative world-class solutions that delight and excite clients. It's been an incredible journey from Tokyo, to Bangkok, to Paris, to New York and of course Windermere - our HQ! I love it!
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.
I provide inspiring opportunities for leaders to explore possibilities in expanding sustainable business and organisational development. As a staff support manager I have been leading operations such as talent acquisitions. Supporting others and organisations to expand their full potential is my passion. I enjoy ensuring we have a unique workplace where we can maximise potential and strengths. I love climbing mountains, hot springs and good organic foods.
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.
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 am also very appreciated for my former athletics experiences and I provide stretching sessions to all colleagues who need to exercise a bit after a long day in the office. I deal with a lot of internal and external stakeholders to make sure everything is ok with our clients, accounts, invoices and bills!
