Tried and tested

  • We’ve got a really good working relationship already and I think we've started incredibly strong. The additional resource is helpful, but the talent, expertise, and experience that Instant Impact’s team brings, as well as the technology and the reach that they have to bring people in to come and talk to us has been really powerful so far. I think there's a real opportunity for the partnership to be transformational for us in light of our growth journey.
