Are leaders born or made? That’s a debate that isn’t yet settled. But either way, it’s indisputable that leadership skills training can enhance the performance of even the most accomplished and experienced ...Read more
Jon started his career on a two-year Management and Leadership Development Programme with Inchcape, a retail motor-franchise group, after which he was promoted to Sales Manager within the Land Rover franchise at the age of 22.
He subsequently moved into an Area Manager role in the motor-vehicle finance industry with Chartered Trust (now Black Horse Finance) where he managed dealer group and manufacturer relationships and completed his Finance and Leasing Association (FLA) examinations in commercial and financial practice.
His first business venture came when he set up a specialist technology leasing company. This established several high-level agreements with technology vendors who offered the company’s services to commercial clients either directly or through resellers, to help them to procure their solutions.
After a successful trade sale of that business, he spent a short while delivering consultancy and training by individual request before realising there was a significant gap in the market for high quality, flexible and usable leadership and management training.
He established Impellus in 2008 with a set of principles around every training course and qualification; they should be enjoyable, understandable, and deliver real and immediate organisational results. These principles run through every programme the company delivers to this day.

Really pleased to have received my Level 3 Certificate of Learning by attending various management courses through Impellus business performance training. It was a great learning and development experience!
I would like to say a huge thank you to the team for facilitating the delivery of the virtual training courses.
The course material and slide presentation was very well planned out, and the way the course was delivered by David James was extremely satisfying. He kept a good flow to the day and made it very interesting.
The trainer was really engaging and warm. Brilliant teacher!
The content was great and really helpful. Wish I'd done it years ago!
The mixture of listening and discussing was just right.
David James was great, the pace of the training and the activities planned worked very well and there was a direct link to how to use everything in practice in our own environment. I was engaged and interested during the whole day. Excellent work
The 3 courses I attended were really engaging and thought provoking. Leadership and strategic thinking, the business models, the techniques have developed since my time at business college. For me if you are not learning you're not improving as a leader and manager. The Impellus course delivery by David Ross was superb, the course literature quality also. An enjoyable experience all round and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Impellus to others.
