Experience the Impact Journey







Scotland CAN DO business as a force for good

The Impact Journey supports all organisations and professionals to play their vital role in society by better understanding how to deliver impact in all areas of their business.

The Impact Journey has been designed and improved after months of prototyping in Scotland and understanding what businesses need to integrate impact measurement and management. The journey also makes it easy to reflect on why it is relevant to the future of their business, including capacity to innovate and put in place clear areas of improvement. We have structured the programme to be engaging, pragmatic and rigorous in providing the most pressing questions. We do this by co-creating the modules with expert contributors in different areas of knowledge in Scotland.

Please find below a summary of the modules as well as upcoming dates. To request a proposal for your organisation, please contact info@canb.scot
