Impact Factory's Trainers
We live the work we lead; we love the work we do
Every single one of our trainers has been through a rigorous internal training programme and is accredited as an Impact Factory trainer.
We don't hire associates to deliver our training; it's all delivered by exceptional people that we have trained to be the best in the business.
Have a look below and see if you wouldn't rather have these highly trained, experienced people run your training.
As opposed to an associate with no actual association to the provider.
