Impact is the core of what we do. Yet we often struggle to understand the impact we are having, how to communicate it effectively and how to design programs, strategies or approaches to have deeper, enduring impact.

The Impact-Led Design Masterclass draws on over 20 years experience of designing innovative approaches to social change and will provide you with cutting edge theory and practice on how to build a high performing impact-focused organisation. Moving beyond measurement, impact-led design assists the not-for-profit sector to solve problems, develop innovative approaches, improve outcomes and become more future ready.
