Jeff Jackson

Jeff is a team specialist and personal coach dedicated to helping teams and individuals improve their performance. He has been working in this field most of his working life and is still passionate about life long learning and personal development.

He was a teacher originally before following his heart and moving to Outward Bound in the Lake District where he headed up the Professional Development Team. Four years of using the outdoors as a powerful medium for learning, convinced him that learning experiences should ideally touch people intellectually, emotionally and spiritually.

A move to Impact saw him establish and develop the company’s Consulting Group where he led a team of 15 highly experienced and inspired consultants at the forefront of Development Training. The capability of identifying business drivers and designing innovative learning programmes to deliver better business results established Impact as more than a training company.

The Coaching work he pioneered here and in particular the approach he developed to help managers challenge under performers is still regarded as ahead of its time and is widely used today.

A keen sportsman himself, Jeff has developed a reputation for working with International Sports Teams. His work with the 1997 British and Irish Lions prior to the successful tour of South Africa remains one of his proudest achievements.
