Hi-impact is a growing education and technical consultancy, fuelled by passion and a commitment to making a difference. Operations Director, Kylie Reid and their leadership team sought support as they embarked on shaping the company towards growth.
Where they were at
Hi-impact started in 2008 with a mission to support educators with the integration of technology across their curriculums. Since then, the business has evolved to provide extensive digital services including virtual tours, videography, and web design.
Now home to a team of specialist teachers, technicians, and digital experts, hi-impact wanted to build on their growth potential and better align the different areas of the business.
As a team that's growing and operating in an ever-shifting sector hi-impact wanted a safe space to assess where the business was, where they wanted to take it – and how to get there.
How Gather helped
"We have implemented a new strategy for targeting sales opportunities, directing our time and investments into new opportunities."
Hi-impact has participated in several Gather programmes, including Shift, One-to-one support, and the Beyond programme. The practical advice received through these initiatives assisted them in spearheading a cultural shift throughout the business and adopting a new target-driven approach.
A shift towards a fast-paced sales model wasn't without challenges. Key to the success was putting in place strategies to ensure all staff were aligned to the company values and the strong customer relations that have been the foundation of hi-impact's success were retained.
"The impact of Beyond and the other Gather programmes on our business has already been significant.”
Hi-impact has undergone transformative changes, steering their focus towards growth, nurturing the health of their business, and unlocking future opportunities. The ripple effect has already been felt with increased productivity and efficiency across all areas of the company.
With renewed focus and excitement, hi-impact are exploring new ways to attract and retain future talent. They're readying their business to gracefully meet the ever-shifting challenges of their sector, confident in their shared journey towards a brighter future.
