How Impact Partners Is Different

    We are your senior-level team with decades of experience working with the world’s most influential individuals and building impactful relationships; there is no bait and switch.
    Proven know-how in developing messages (narrative) that impact the value of your business. We ensure that every communication and conversation enhances your reputation, and we convey it in a way that drives advocacy and incites movements.
    We enhance the value of VCs, (ultra) high net worth, and family offices’ investments (the companies they invest in). We also understand that even when a family office wants to stay private, it’s still important to share their foundation’s core expertise and good works, in order to build discreet coalitions that enhance the impact of their efforts.
    We are backed by some of the deepest rolodexes in business. We don’t just work with Fortune and the Fast Company, we are friends with the CEO of the former and the editor-in-chief of the latter. We can pitch bottom up with the media, but we prefer to build our trusted relationships top down. Our pedigree has proven our value to the world’s most powerful individuals in both the private and public sectors.
    Impact stands apart when you need ”leadership coaching,” or to be put in a room with the company or influencer who will Impact your personal and / or professional goals. We anticipate the questions and prepare you before they’re asked.
    We love what we do, because we know what helps influential individuals and their organizations do what’s necessary to achieve sustained success and grow meaningfully.
