About

UBS AG is a Swiss global financial services company incorporated in the Canton of Zurich, and co-headquartered in Zurich and Basel. Impact worked with UBS Investment Bank to consult, design and deliver a leadership development Programme for 250 high potential Associate Directors and Directors from across the global organisation.

UBS Investment Bank targeted 250 high potential Associate Directors and Directors from across the global organisation to participate in a two-year multi-modular development programme called ASCENT. Impact's role was to consult, design and deliver a highly engaging, challenging and experiential Leadership Development Programme.

The three-day intensive leadership development programme used Impact's model of leadership action combined with customised 360 leadership feedback, senior guest speakers, MBTI Step II and three experiential leadership projects, as well as peer and facilitated reviews and coaching.

"Working with Impact can best be described as both enjoyable and an ideal partnership. We found them to be extremely creative with some of the most unique experiential learning available. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the impact they have had on UBS Investment Bank."

Michelle Blieberg, Managing Director & Global Learning Officer

"The success of the Emerging Leaders Programme has exceeded my expectations. The content is relevant, the selection process is rigorous - and it delivers. We are seeing a clear increase in leadership capability within this talent population. This is now coming to fruition as we see more and more individuals who attend the programme going on to take on more demanding roles - be that within their current level or to more senior roles. The programme is recognised by our Executive Team as talent enabler."

"After a long working relationship with Impact in the UK, I was eager to engage them in my early days as the General Manager of Premium Financial Services. We ran two sessions, one for my leadership team and another with some of our outstanding talent. Both events were brilliant. As a participant and a leader I saw immense benefits on a personal and business level. We now have clarity of vision, purpose and direction along with a unique bond that will allow us to soar to new heights."
