Always enthusiastic & happy to help, my role here involves lots of hats! I help to achieve the professional service we offer, I am responsible for incoming enquiries and submitting tenders. I build client relationships & continually develop strategies to help achieve the professional service Impact offer. I also manage Impact’s close relationship with the University of Cumbria. I'm a mum first and foremost, love my family, friends, days out and silly jokes.
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 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.
I’m passionate about experiential learning and learning through play. I enjoy inspiring groups to better themselves, to collaborate and share skills, to be ambitious for each other and those around them. I have extensive experience working in the cultural, education and corporate sectors. I’m an award winning theatre maker who has directed shows for the Queen, the Prime Minister and West End audiences. Out of work you’ll find me building Lego unicorns with my daughter.
Being a manager of the delivery team in Impact Japan, I have been putting great effort and energy into realising our “Re-Born Strategy” from the delivery quality aspect. For my leadership style, creating trust is the most important factor. I support my team by creating trusting relationships, and as a facilitator, I use this quality to create a completely safe and open learning space in programmes. I love having a good time with people, drinking and karaoke.

I love why Impact exist, which is to build organisations worth working for, I am excited to explore the journey with our clients. I love building effective client relationships both externally and internally, the people in Impact are passionate, motivated individuals and I love working here. I am always out and about whether it is running around after my niece or walking the fells or working out in the gym, happy, happy, happy!
I belong to a Creative Production Unit in the Consulting Department. My role is to develop frameworks and tools for consulting, text books for new consultants, sales promoting tools and more. When working on proposals I take advantage of my experience as an ex-consultant, as well as being a fun person at Impact. As a father of three sons and a daughter, I am always looking for the best way to quickly restore energy.
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.
Before joining Impact, I was a Ph.D. research assistant focusing on Cultural and Musical Sociology. Through my studies, I’ve played over 40 culturally unique string instruments and have similarly heard over 300. Using this experience and knowledge, I currently develop new innovative experiential learning solutions for our clients and facilitate their completion.
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 manage the end-to-end implementation of client solutions, sales and service. Prior to Impact I worked in the public sector where I gained experience in project and relationship management through partnership work with other public bodies and community organisations. I love going on outdoor adventures but I admit to being ‘fair-weather’ (and proud!) so on a wet day you can find me reading by a fire or in the kitchen testing out new recipes.
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 joined Impact in 2014. My current role in finance allows me to connect with and support many colleagues across the region. My work has been enjoyable and worthwhile as I am able to contribute locally & regionally. I find Impact is a good place to work as there is a flexibility and work life balance. Working with a diverse team is fascinating. It is a place where you can be yourself and unique.
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.
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!
I assist in the resourcing department and HR department. I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to be working for impact, a local business with a global presence. I love meeting new people and I am excited to be working with our associates and my new colleagues. I enjoy exploring the outdoors and spending time with my friends and family. An interesting fact about myself is I am a black belt in ju - jitsu.
I started my career at a global automobile parts manufacturing company, where I got interested in people development. Currently I am enjoying my journey at Impact, improving my knowledge and skills, to find the best solutions for our clients. I enjoy travelling both in Japan and overseas. I like reading books and staying indoors, but also enjoy scuba diving and going outside to see friends and new experiences.
They say the good life is built with good relationships, so this is what I spend most of my time on – professionally and personally. At Impact I build relations with existing clients and companies which didn’t have a chance to get to know us (yet). I also support my team in project management. Staying in a country Inn with my husband, son and camera is the best way for me to relax.
I manage programmes globally from sale to completion, and inspire and develop our programme management team, ensuring we deliver what the client needs whilst still retaining fun and a sense of humour. My most important responsibility is being the holder of the office treats jar; which I take very seriously! I love spending time with my son and Fiancée (when they’re on best behaviour) and I am currently planning my wedding extravaganza in the beautiful town of Sitges.
I have been researching, teaching, studying, practicing, directing and performing improvised theater, applied improvisation, emotional intelligence and play since 1995. This fuels the passion I have for designing and facilitating experiential learning programs. My career includes both internal and external consulting on coaching, communications skills, and leadership for global companies.
I am responsible for leading and managing a portfolio of our global digital learning solutions, specifically working on our client solutions that integrate air. I am passionate about increasing the reach and power of experiential learning, through exciting, bespoke blended and digital solutions. I’m happiest when every day has a little bit of sunshine, lots of laughter and my black Labrador in it.
Father of three, happily married to one, manager of some, I love numbers and sales but I also like to ideate, design and deliver challenging programmes, either in training or consultancy. In Impact for more than 15 years, I still very much enjoy the consultancy process, especially account and client management. At work I am acknowledged (and sometimes blamed) for dreaming big and joking a lot!
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!
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.
