MURAL Guidance

1. Why are we doing it? A small business owner had come to Impactara after exploring the possibility of transforming their business from a physical to virtual workspace. The client had used a free trial of a digital collaboration tool, MURAL, but not discovered the full potential of its features. The client was testing out the capabilities of MURAL to use for their own consultancy business. The coaches at Impactara… Read More »MURAL Guidance

Social Enterprise Clothing Turbo Kaizen

1. Why are we doing this piece of work? Since our client launched their clothing brand via an online store and social channels in early 2020, the sales were below the required level to achieve a sustainable business model. Other activities had been explored to overcome this sales gap, such as new markets and the marketing approach. However, one area that had not progressed is the digital plugins available to… Read More »Social Enterprise Clothing Turbo Kaizen

Charity Board Strategy Day

1. Why are we doing this strategy day? The sports club had been running for over 60 years but had lost some direction as the number of teams, volunteers and activities increased.  They needed clarity on what had to be done and who was responsible for doing it as they were struggling to maintain the charity status they had gained 10 years previously. 2. What was happening before? The sports… Read More »Charity Board Strategy Day

Impactara is always ready to support customers in challenging times and provide assistance for businesses which are experiencing… Read More »Business Plan and Ways of Working
