Case Study: hi-impact – Peer Networks Programme

Whether sending 360 degree cameras to the edge of space, or creating virtual tours for international clients, the hi-impact team provides exclusive and unique opportunities with technology at the helm.

Hi-impact were one of the businesses in the Liverpool City Region, to take part in Growth Platform’s Peer Network programme, led by delivery partner Hey Strategy. “Peer Networks supported our business development team in a period of growth during the pandemic. As the Head of Marketing and Sales, I used the Peer Networks group to seek advice and guidance from other businesses whilst maneuvering through lockdown and also to support my department’s growth” Dionne Thomas, Head of Sales and Marketing, hi-impact.



Dionne stated that “The Peer Networks programme is by far the best programme I have been a part of since I joined my organisation. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started but I was very lucky to be a part of a great group of people with varied positions from business owners through to sales. With support from the individuals in the group and delivery partner Phil, I managed to shift my department structure and streamline processes, meaning everything is a lot clearer and responsibilities shared evenly. These changes that have been implemented were huge to my organisation as it has helped to navigate the growth in the business development department and given all staff a clear path for professional development.”

Hi-impact are currently expanding their team and new departments created in lockdown to support an adapted service approach, means that business is steady. Moving forward the team are busy, with numerous marketing and sales strategies being run simultaneously, some for existing clients, some for new departments and services and others to gain further sales.
