Becky Rayner

Account Manager, UK

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!

Anh Tu

Senior Program Manager, Americas

I am like the Caulobacter crescentus (the strongest adhesive in nature), making sure our processes from program design to delivery all connect and exceed client expectation. I program manage through creating and driving our project plan, developing presentation materials, and coordinating on-site. Like the Caulobacter crescentus, I love to call anywhere near the water my home, enjoy adapting to new environments and making the best of any situation.

Film Maker, UK

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?

Being a mom of two young girls keeps everyday an adventure and in my spare time I love to golf.

A pinch of alert and visionary madness is the secret ingredient I use in supporting leaders, managers and organisations in their growing and changing process. What I've been doing for 20 years is empower people’s point of view. My job excites me, enriches me, makes me a better person… and I have so much fun!

After several years in the digital marketing industry I was keen to utilise my management skills and develop our in-house fully-integrated digital marketing agency, Zinco. Outside of work I’m a crafty creative but will quite happily swap cosy fireside afternoons for long, sunny walks with my trusty Labrador Saffy.

It’s my privilege to manage Impact across Asia: and even the endless plane travel doesn’t dampen my enthusiasm for the brilliant work we do here for our Clients. R&R for me is a glass of wine and stalking my teenagers on social media…

Being attracted by its inspiring, insightful learning approach and unique culture, I joined Impact as a consultant. One of the happiest moments of working here for me is when I hear our participants say that “it was the best training ever in my life!” I am eager to discuss, think and design programmes that are best fit for our clients utilising our expertise in the personal and organisational development arenas.

Managing Partner and Head of Sales, Italy

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 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!

Founder and President, Italy

I’ve been many in my working life: an HR Director, an entrepreneur, a leader, a coach, a salesman, a visionary, a confidant, a manager. And a friend. And I am still excited (and sometimes anxious) when I meet a new group of people. I genuinely enjoy it! This is the reason I'll probably work for another decade!

At 21 I had my first day of work at Impact in the stores... I am still making up for everything that happened that week. My passion is in sports coaching and development. My journey with Impact has taken me traveling around the world where I continue to meet and work with many amazing people. I am a big family man, and love surrounding myself with the best of company. If I am not herding terrifying highland cattle, I’ll be playing rugby or baking sponge cakes.

Senior Developer (Zinco), UK

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.
