After living in France and working in the ski industry for 13 years, I decided to move back to the UK, with no real plan. I love running, although I’m not very fast, and love the outdoors. While trying to figure out what my next step would be I came across Impact, and I have been lucky enough to join the team as a Programme Coordinator. I am looking forward to the challenge of learning something new and being part of the Impact family.
I am responsible for the accounting tasks. I have always loved working with numbers and after receiving my bachelor degree in accounting at ACU ( Australian Catholic University), I fell into something that I actually enjoy. I consider myself very organised with an excellent work ethic and with desire to constantly improve. I am originally from Brazil and love the beaches and tropical weather.
In the last 25+ years I’ve worked with many great organisations and love being able to bring a breadth and depth of experience to my programs. I currently regularly travel across Asia consulting for clients and looking after our great people. I'm described as an Energiser Bunny, I bring energy into everything I do, even if I'm stepping off a 12-hour flight! I recover by spending time with my family and exploring the wilderness in NZ with a fishing rod.
I am the lead web developer at Zinco, helping Impact build its web presence. I love the diversity my role brings, I work with many types of organisations and interact with some amazing people. I’m a problem solver and love tinkering with new technology to see what’s around the corner. Outside of work my passion is cycling and enjoying time with my young family.
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.
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.
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.

I'm based in Thailand, a country of beautiful islands, good food and nice people. I have a lot of fun working with people around the world. I have more than two decades of international finance and accounting experience. My real challenge is working with Inland Revenue offices in different countries! I love to explore the world through reading and travel and one day wish to have a little cafe where people can sit and have a coffee or few drinks and craft together.

After many years in business environment, leading sales and operating teams, I decided to share my knowledge and practice as a coach and facilitator. Becoming Impact consultant enabled me to support leaders and talents in developing their leadership with a solid dose of the "fun factor" that Impact programs provide.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. I get my energy from those around me, which is why Impact is the perfect place for me to work! In any spare time I have left after running after my son, I love to play netball and planning my next adventure!
I spend with Impact more than 20 years. Regardless of my role, my job was always working with people for people. I see Impact as a community of people that adds an extra value to world by building organisation worth working for and I truly believe We make a difference. Currently my main focus is to help organisations to change by creating and delivering solutions that engage people in transformation processes.
I love exploring issues that my clients face and helping to find practical solutions. My other roles include developing Impact’s thinking around leadership and team development, and using systemic perspectives to encourage responsible leadership in business and society. Convincing, articulate and credible as a facilitator, I'm passionate about helping people realise their full potential...including myself! I love ski-mountaineering and any ways to access wild places.

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.
I always enjoyed working for companies who share my values and whose work I can be passionate about. I love that Impact wants to make a difference and has the purpose to help build companies worth working for. I enjoy a good adventure and have a passion for travelling, my latest adventure being swapping London life for the great outdoors of the lovely Lake District!
Having worked in L&D internationally since the early 90's, my focus is blending practical business acumen, people development and organisational change to create client solutions. I design and deliver solutions that leverage the positive aspects of a clients’ culture while challenging the structures that impede leadership capacity. In my spare time you’ll find me outside, I love exploring the world with my family.
I support delivery of high quality, safe and challenging programmes and keep the operations infrastructure in a safe and workable condition. I have been lucky to have worked in some amazing places around the world with some amazing colleagues and participants. Working from Base still takes some beating though! When not working I enjoy having adventures with my family, exploring the Lakes and keeping fit by running, climbing and riding my Cyclocross bike.

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 am responsible for the smooth running of the office and providing support to our close-knit team. With a background in design and marketing, I apply creatively to all facets in particular the development of presentations and proposals. I am passionate about health and well-being, practising yoga daily and surrounding myself with positive people which Is why I love working for Impact.
