Impact Trainings


Scotland CAN B's Impact Training services center around the our 6 module Impact Journey content. It is designed as an inclusive, cyclical, comprehensive and holistic programme, able to support any business or business advisor on their journey of understanding, measuring and managing impact.

We have structured the training content to be thought-provoking, pragmatic and rigorous, and up-to-date with all the latest tools and research from the emergent field of business impact.
