I love everything I do at Impact – meeting clients, developing relationships, seeing solution ideas become life-changing programmes, ensuring operations are smooth and effective, managing the numbers and creating a workplace full of happy, talented, passionate people. Since joining in 1990, Impact has shown me who I am and what I can do. I’m always doing something - active or relaxing, social or reflective, travelling or staying put - I just love life!
In support we deliver on programs and manage day-to-day operations and infrastructure. I really enjoy my role as it’s very diverse, one day I am canoeing on Windermere and the next cleaning boots! My favourite programs feature outdoor activities and journeys. People see me as a steady pair of hands and a person who does a quality, professional job. Outside work I keep myself fit and active, and enjoy chilling out with my wife Emma and travelling in our camper van.
Annie's easygoing interpersonal style, high flexibility and adaptability, and customer-oriented focus has enabled her to quickly establish trust with customers. With more than 13 years experience in the industry, Annie responsibilities revolve around the end-to-end design and implementation of client programmes.
Using ten years L&D industry experience, I build trusted partnerships with clients to create detailed project plans for complex initiatives. I manage program execution and implementation, working with teams of consultants and coaches to ensure excellence. I co-lead our global knowledge management strategy, which transformed global collaboration and knowledge sharing. Being a mom of two young girls keeps everyday an adventure and in my spare time I love to golf.
I like Impact's people, its culture and the programmes we run so much! I always try to figure out what kind of programme would "Inspire & Develop" the participants, and then propose a solution which meets the client's expectation. I am very happy and inspired when I see the behavioural changes in teams and each participant. My hobbies are scuba diving and road biking!
I design, run and lead programs across all market sectors in the fields of leadership, personal development and team performance. I've spent over 60 weeks of my life facilitating 5-day retreat style programs that combine positive psychology and community action projects. I am passionate about improving leadership cultures and enabling people to be the best version of themselves. I enjoy the local hiking, live music and craft beer.
Since joining Impact in 1999 life became very interesting for me! I am meeting fascinating people every day, I am privileged to peek into their daily challenges and successes. Executive teams, line managers, and employees - I love to have a full picture, and inspire them to make their lives easier, less stressful, more productive or simply more fun! I couldn’t ask for a better job.
Working as a planner at Creative and Marketing Department since 2019. Before Impact, my career was mainly on the position of sales and marketing at the bank and advertising agency. My focus is on the capacity building for both individual and team. Virtual team building is one of the fatal themes because I am working as a full remote member. I love traveling around the world with my backpack and enjoying beautiful local delicacies!

With over 20 years' experience in organisation evolution and people development, working for both small and international companies, my distinctive attributes are positive energy, curiosity, and assertiveness. I believe that no business Strategy can be delivered without a people Strategy, which leads my daily commitments traveling in Italy and Europe.
I manage all Impact Italia accounting processes and love precision, tramezzini (look it up!) and silly jokes. 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!
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 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.
People are amazing. We have so much going on and yet we are capable of such incredible things. I’m incredibly grateful to work with amazing people, helping them learn, grow, and maximise their potential. Based in beautiful NZ, I work with a fascinating mix of clients throughout Asia. When not immersed in my work, I love spending time in nature with my wonderful family.
My role is varied, whether it’s establishing a new client partnership, building client relationships, organising ThinkTank, planning marketing strategy, sourcing social partners or managing delivery of our strategic projects…I am always there. I’m a family person and the biggest fan of my little daughter who is just discovering the world. I enjoy accompanying her on this journey and showing her wonderful places and activities - sports and travel.
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'm passionate about helping those around me grow and develop. I utilize my knowledge of recruiting, onboarding and managing multiple complex projects and deadlines. I create project plans, manage client requests and relationships and create program materials. As a traveller at heart, I’ve visited 26 of the 50 US states, 11 foreign countries and 8 of the Caribbean islands. I love experiencing new cultures, enjoying the great outdoors and trying local cuisine.
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 am responsible for knowledge management, new solutions and coordinating associates. An active coach, psychologist and psychotherapist, I have over 20 years experience as HR manager with orientation on quality and business-context solutions. I have a broad knowledge about HR processes, policies and tools, verified by implementation. I am a mother of a teenage boy and in my free time I love going to concerts and jazz singing.
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.
A lifelong passion for learning and leadership brought me to Impact, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. As a designer, facilitator, and thought partner, I embrace a scholar-practitioner mindset, running to the issues and engaging others with clarity, empathy, and authenticity. My favorite activity of each day is laughing, playing, and making up bedtime stories with my kids. They're hilarious!
I love creating exciting digital experiences, and the opportunity to do so for a company genuinely worth working for was simply too good to pass up. When I’m not behind a keyboard I can be found evangelising about the latest and greatest science and technology, learning something new, travelling the world or lumbering up the familiar fells of my home in the Lakes.
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.
As the resident ‘islander', I bring my passion for life and the excitement of the Caribbean culture to the L&D industry and my role as a change agent. With 25 years experience and a doctorate in organizational leadership, I love incorporating new neuroscientific research when designing and facilitating powerful development solutions. You'll find me playing with my 3 incredible children in the Florida sunshine, walking the intercostal, or on the beach with a book.
