About Us

"We are passionate about creating a healthier, more inclusive and fairer Australia for all"


Our Story


Impacto Consulting was founded in 2018 when friends and ex-colleagues Tracey and Dan realised that they were both frustrated that they weren't seeing enough progress towards solving some of the problems in the world that they were passionate about. 

Having both been involved in the for-purpose sector, the key area they felt needed assistance was in helping organisations to solve complex problems in new ways. They noticed how many well-intentioned organisations were not seeing the social impact outcomes they wanted, due to continuing to use old ways of working and not involving the people they support by taking a consultative and collaborative approach to solution design.

The idea of Impacto Consulting was born, an end to end innovation consultancy built exclusively for the social sector, powered by collaboration and that is big on delivering IMPACT (which is what Impacto means in spanish).

"Collaboration is the future. We need to give people with lived experience, service users and the most vulnerable in our community a voice at the table to be heard, and we need to work together to understand the perspectives of all stakeholders to co-create solutions that work for everyone. This is how we will change the world and make it more inclusive, equal and fairer for all."


The role Impacto Consulting plays in the sector...

  • To provide accessible innovation services for organisations to call upon when they need assistance with solving a complex problem

  • To build the collaboration and innovation capability of the sector

  • To be an advocate for collaboration and respecting the voice of those with lived experience

We work Australia wide with a presence in Melbourne, Sydney & Adelaide.
