Why Become Impact EconomicsCertified?

Contact Us For Details

To put it bluntly, it will help you become one of the most experienced, successful, and sought after profit-for-purpose focused consultants in the world, and the "go to" consultant within your community, city, or region. 

 

If we have learned anything from the pandemic it is that we must build communities that are more inclusive, resilient, and economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable for all residents. The need is palpable but the knowledge, tools, proven models, and experience to achieve the requirements are not ubiquitous. Furthermore, success cannot be achieved unless the work is done "In Place", hence In Place Impact certifies people in Impact Economics and teaches them how to create and run their own self-funding organization to bring Impact Economics to their communities. After all, the most profound Impact happens when it occurs "In Place". 

Impact Economics Certified Consultants become the go to residents in their communities for working with:

  • Businesses wishing to improve performance in all KPI's by embracing leadership and management through the lens of Profit for Purpose

  • Local government wishing to build a community that is economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable for ALL residents

  • Local Impact Entrepreneurs and Impact Investors to create vibrant Impact Hubs focused on solving local socioeconomic and or environmental problems  

  • Residents wishing to bring their Impact focused innovations to life

  • Educational institutions wishing to embrace and embed Impact Studies within their curriculums

  • Students wishing to pursue Impact focused careers

  • Not-for-Profits requiring additional human and financial support

  • All community stakeholders to achieve the United Nations SDGs and to embed Impact Economics across all community segments 

  • Marginalized segments to increase economic vibrancy while reducing the problems associated with a lack thereof 

Impact Economics Certified Consultants are the epitome of "Making A Profit While Making A Difference" i.e. they can build extremely profitable businesses while making huge positive impacts on ALL segments of their community. 

In Place Impact certifies Individuals, Teams, Foundations, and Cities, States, and Countries that are all governed by a licensing agreement that is assigned for specific "approved regions". Certified consultants receive everything they need to work with each community stakeholder embedded with an Impact Economics driven economy. This includes but is not limited to:

  • The City Impact Index

  • The Corporate Impact index

  • All class syllabuses 

  • Legal contracts and MOU's

  • Weekly ongoing training 

  • Marketing materials

Plus much more....

Find the certification program below that is most appropriate for you (most importantly the "Covid Recovery Certification" which is offered for as low as $1495 as the world has asked for help and once again we have responded), then contact us to set up a virtual screen share to see if it is right for you. 

Impact Economics Certified consultants are the only profit for purpose consultants trained and certified in Impact Economics, and thus they are the only consultants that can embed their clients in an Impact Economics driven, community-centric, fully inclusive economic ecosystem.
