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.
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?
I’m a filmmaker. I believe there are stories in everything and that everyone has a story to tell. Even the most ordinary people are extraordinary when you really get to know them!
I’ve been exploring the world since I was a young ‘un, there’s loads left to see. I like mountains, I don’t like the sea much, I suppose it’s alright to look at, but not to go in… Happy to discuss.
After several leadership positions in social enterprise, non-profit and retail, I recently fulfilled my ambition to work for one of my favourite world changing companies. Relocating from London to the Lakes has been a big step but the stunning landscape and numerous outdoor pursuits has meant I haven’t stopped exploring lakes, land and sea and I’m never short of a challenge. I use my experience and background in psychology to create organisations worth working for.
As a former client, I jumped at the chance to work with Impact in 2002 and pursue my passion for inspiring others to realise their potential. I’m an avid reader and love to incorporate my learning into the leadership development programmes that I deliver; recent topics of interest include applied neuroscience & gender dynamics. Dogs feature widely in my life outside of work.
Leading the US finance department includes guiding my team, considering new ways for increased financial success, keeping the team financially informed and ensuring accurate reporting. I have a business/accounting degree and 15+ years experience as a CPA. I see myself as a finance skilled business partner rather than an accountant. I love spectator sports, food, wine, whisky, binge watching TV, travel, wood burning open fires and being outside in the fresh air.
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.
With over 20 years of experience in developing teams, businesses and strategies, I believe that a people-first, results-orientated approach leads to profitable and sustainable change. I love life, I'm an infectious optimist! I have a unique blend of leadership an business skills gained in the corporate environment. My affection for other cultures is expressed through my love of sport, food and travel. I am also a qualified pilot.
Change is my partner in business and life. “Be better” is my inspiration to continue to grow. I joined Impact 20 years ago and have worked in many different roles as a consultant, general manager, coach and business developer from offices in Europe and Asia. In my current role I am responsible for supporting business in Poland and Central Europe and I am also co-creating with clients cultural transformation solutions.
My role is to create and sustain positive client relationships and ensure the successful implementation of global programmes. I work in partnership with my clients to develop customised solutions using our innovative approach to leadership. After five years living in different parts of the world I love being back in the Lakes, I spend most of my time indulging in great food with friends and exploring the beautiful place I get to call home.
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'm a strong believer in what we do at Impact and I enjoy meeting clients to showcase our offerings and unique capabilities. Impact has given me opportunities to be myself, develop and grow. I’m passionate about learning and recently combined this with my interest in HR to gain a CIPD qualification, which has enabled me to support Impact’s HR projects. In my free time I love socialising with my friends and family and keeping fit at the gym.

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.
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.
After 26 years working for Sony in senior HR roles in Japan, Singapore, Sweden, Germany and the UK, I joined Impact to apply my experience to support organisations with their senior leadership and talent effectiveness. I work with clients to develop their people, maximising team and individual potential. I'm passionate about high performance and personal wellbeing, especially our Going The Distance programme. I aim to get a mention of Watford FC into every programme.
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.
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.
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.
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”.

As Programme Manager, I work on the end to end implementation of client solutions. Impact gives me opportunity to do loads of different work such as our internal charity team and our 'holiday' for underprivileged kids. I also do my best to avoid doing things that can land me the coveted "Silver Screw" award for conspicuousness in the line of duty, a.k. the most notable 'cock up' of the year...however, I seem to be attracted to situations to put me in contention.
