IMPACT EDUCATION FOR PROFESSIONALS

To date, there is no measurable and actionable set of values that could realistically complement profit maximisation as a guiding objective. Organisations are still facing difficulties in measuring and managing their impact, despite all efforts, and consequently fail to maximise their value creation to society. Even when societal value is created, communicating this remains challenging.

To address these issues, Impact Institute has developed a set of development programmes. These programmes offer a range of practical tools, built on our proven methods, and learning experiences to equip professionals with the right knowledge and skills to measure impact, steer on impact, and develop future business strategies. Our trainings enable professionals to apply impact as a concept in their day-to-day lives and use it as a proposition differentiator in stakeholder engagements.
