Francesca Filzi

Accounting and Financial Support, Italy

I manage all Impact Italia accounting processes and love precision, tramezzini (look it up!) and silly jokes. I am also very appreciated for my former athletics experiences and I provide stretching sessions to all colleagues who need to exercise a bit after a long day in the office. I deal with a lot of internal and external stakeholders to make sure everything is ok with our clients, accounts, invoices and bills!

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.

Richard Little

Senior Consultant, UK
During 35 years in Impact I have specialised in leadership development, working with every imaginable kind of organisation; meanwhile, at IFLAS I am Professor of Sustainability Leadership. In both roles, I am driven by the urgent need for change in the nature and purpose of business education. My tendency to scepticism, especially about leadership, began to take shape when I was expelled from school, a career high-point not since surpassed.

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.

Programme Manager, UK

I manage the end-to-end implementation of client solutions, sales and service. Prior to Impact I worked in the public sector where I gained experience in project and relationship management through partnership work with other public bodies and community organisations. I love going on outdoor adventures but I admit to being ‘fair-weather’ (and proud!) so on a wet day you can find me reading by a fire or in the kitchen testing out new recipes.

I assist in the resourcing department and HR department. I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to be working for impact, a local business with a global presence. I love meeting new people and I am excited to be working with our associates and my new colleagues. I enjoy exploring the outdoors and spending time with my friends and family. An interesting fact about myself is I am a black belt in ju - jitsu.

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