Specialist impact advisory, brand storytelling and events firm ImpactInstitute has announced eight new client wins and 11 new team members since its formation this year.

ImpactInstitute began operations on May 1 following the merger of two purpose-driven organisations and business partners, Social Impact Institute and Filtered Media.

Since May, not-for-profit organisations joining the firm include University of Newcastle, Housing Industry Association, Anti-Slavery Australia, Miracle Babies Foundation and Heads Together for Acquired Brain Injury. Human-first technology companies partnering with ImpactInstitute include Australian clean technology powerhouse 5B, property technology company Propic, and ethical AI pioneer Akin.

A certified B Corp, the firm was formed to help organisations change the world in positive, measurable and meaningful ways.

ImpactInstitute co-CEO, executive chair and principal advisor David Jack says the new clients are accessing a research approach that informs evidence-based planning, decision-making and implementation.

"This is enabling them to pursue strategic initiatives with confidence and the ability to measure effectiveness and success,” says Jack.

Investment in research and impact advisory capabilities has been boosted by four key appointments: Clinical Associate Professor Michelle Jack, head of research and senior Advisor; Tambri Housen, advisor and researcher; Samantha Lain, advisor and researcher; and Julie Behrens, account director, advisory.

New and returning brand storytelling team members include: Candice Witton, account manager + storyteller; Sarah Fairley, head of people and culture; Andrew Wolfson, salesforce consultant + advisor; Yvette Thomson, events marketing coordinator; Nicoletta Vasilaras, PR assistant; Ed Cheng, video and audio producer; and Jasmine Haw, content producer.
