Having spent 20 years in a variety of senior HR roles across multiple sectors at different life cycle stages, I was ready for a change. My search to combine my greater purpose with my career landed me at Impact! I couldn’t be happier and love the variety of people, clients and the creativity we bring in the work we do. It’s great to be part of an organisation that builds organisations worth working for.
I've been involved in Impact since 1987 when I took my first group of managers to the lakes for a novel development programme. With a history as a CEO for several technology companies, in addition to Impact I now serve as non-exec director of a private technology group and as chair of trustees for a youth charity that explores resilience through performance art. I am a Spurs season ticket holder and I grow large exhibition onions.
As a Programme Manager, I oversee the end-to-end implementation of client solutions for several accounts. I like to keep my brain active and have a high energy for keeping things moving forward, which is really helpful in this role. Whilst sometimes I think that I would like to spend every day running around Disney World with bright eyes and no troubles, I know my life of adventuring in the Lake District is a very lucky reality.
Lucky me, I have a job that allows me to be a Human Doing and a Human Being. I love connecting and building relationships with people through my work. I appreciate what I have rather than what I don’t have. Photography has been my passion since I was young! I love capturing people’s expressions, emotions and feelings.
I joined Impact in 2015 as the youngest member of the Impact Japan team. I enjoy the work we do in this great company and the way we work together. We provide a unique value to clients. We all value contributing to Impact, which makes us happy in life.
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.
With more than 25 years experience, my work is primarily management consulting including OD, leadership development and executive, senior team development. I’m based in Boulder, Colorado, and serve a global role as Global Head of Solutions, and Americas Lead Design role. I design custom, immersive leadership challenges to realistically reflect emerging business issues. I also deliver organisational analysis and consulting focused on improving strategic execution.
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.
With over 20 years in L&D and consulting, I love my role at Impact! I build relationships with potential clients, educate them on our offerings, and connect them to our talented team to build outstanding development experiences for their leaders. Relationships feed my joy, so spending time with family and friends traveling, hiking, sharing a meal and a laugh, that’s my bag.
I am a highly experienced Accounting and Financial Management professional with expertise in problem solving, business communications, project management and customer relationships. I’m an enthusiastic leader, successful in liaising across all levels, handling confidential information and managing multiple priorities. I enjoy attending live events; cheering on my favourite sporting teams, watching my friend’s rock band, and supporting my daughter’s dance team.
As a Programme Co-ordinator, the main focus of my role is to help organise and set up a variety of global programmes as part of the Programme Management team. I moved to the Lake District last year after spending the past few years living in various places in the UK and abroad. My favourite way to spend my time outside of work is travelling, but I love the fact that I can now live and work in such a beautiful place every day!
As a past client now working at Impact, I’ve come full circle in my career and consider myself “in the zone” doing work that I truly love. Every professional experience has uniquely positioned me to lead our efforts to create a system and approach to knowledge management, helping us to become more efficient by capturing our intellectual capital and better leveraging the collective brilliance of our teams around the world.
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.
Here at Impact I have the pleasure of managing a portfolio of impressive global programmes and a number of our key clients. I like to simplify the complex, gain clarity where there is ambiguity and drive efficiency and quality through my project teams. I love meeting different people and understanding what makes them tick! I'm full of energy, constantly smiling and always ready for the next adventure.
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.
I have spent my working life helping organisations, teams and people to be the best that they can be. I believe in the power of expertly designed and facilitated experiential learning and the exciting potential that lies within every person given the right opportunity. In my work I believe that managers and leaders have a responsibility to ensure work is exciting, fulfilling and aspirational for the people working in and with their organisations.
My role is to curate our knowledge and understanding of how individuals and organisations learn to help our clients confidently choose us. I have an eclectic mix of cross sector leadership experience at CEO/MD and other levels alongside think-tank research and group facilitation skills. I am well known for going off on one despite years of meditation and aikido and can intentionally overuse the word ‘love’.
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'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 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 met Impact in 2006 and I fell in love with the way Impact use theory, practical application and innovation to develop others. As a facilitator I deliver custom tailored solutions for clients in Italy, for private, public and non-profit organisations. I have an insatiable curiosity and stay satisfied through reading and research. Also I love to sail on my Fireball dinghy and play drums in my jazz trio.
My commercial career in Sales/Marketing and General Management was spent mainly with P&G and latterly Abbott Labs. I’m passionate about strategy, personal and team development and change management. I love cycling on both road and mountains, travelling and generally having fun with friends and family as father to four kids. I’m excited to work at Impact and add value in these changing times!
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.
Brought up in the Lakes with a sense of adventure and a motto of 'Aim High', I've embraced a career full of change, challenges and travel. From financial consulting in the Australian outback, being International Treasurer of Goldman Sachs to helping organise the London 2012 Olympics. So what now? Working on things that make a difference.
