Team Development


With operations in 50 countries and 68,000 employees, Thales is a global technology leader for the aerospace, space, defence, security and transportation markets. Impact have run the team building module in partnership with the Thales Université SMP programme since 2002.

During the nine-month programme, the SMP participants are tasked with managing a real business project. The team building module is designed as a launch event, to help prepare the group to work collaboratively, whilst remotely, on their chosen project. Team working, intercultural awareness, communication skills and networking opportunities are all covered in the programme. 

Impact designed an interactive programme that uses experiential projects to highlight the value of collaboration and sharing. Expertly facilitated review sessions encourage opportunity for open dialogue about effective team working. By the end of the first module, participants have established how they will work efficiently together as project teams. 

Impact's work in close partnership with Thales Université, and our ongoing dialogue and strong relationship results in a consistently relevant and fresh event. The participants enjoy getting to know one another socially and value Impact’s support to establish an effective project team relationship.

Discovery Networks International
"When they finished, I had a different bunch of people in front of me. There was a real sense of connection, a real sense of belonging; there was an incredible amount of ownership, and I get goosebumps just talking about it."
“My outlook both professionally and personally changed dramatically and I implemented this immediately after I returned due to the skills and confidence I gained at Springboard - Thank you”

"The opportunity for FareShare to be a community partner and to tune into Diageo’s intellectual capital for the day was fantastic. We got a lot out of it and I’m looking forward to following up on some of the ideas.”
