Curiosity and culture have influenced my life since I was a kid and dug a hole in our yard attempting to arrive in China for dinner! I am passionate about connecting people and their purpose to experiences, and partnering with organisations that are on the journey of transformation.

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.

Yasushi Igarashi

Co-ordinator, Japan

Before Joining Impact in 2002 I worked as an outdoor guide for nature tourism, kayaking and trekking in the ocean and forest. Using this experience, my strengths are in creating and coordinating programmes that provide learning experiences through outdoor activities. Beyond this role I wear several different hats, such as managing our website and managing H&S. Personally, I love to do challenging journeys by sea kayak and bike in many countries.

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!
