Say Hello to Impact
Impact cannot happen in isolation. It requires collective action.
Another world is happening and you’re invited to take part in it. Step into any one of our Impact Hubs around the world and join our active online community as we say Hello to Impact. Our #HelloImpact campaign brings together Impact Makers from around the world to share stories, aspirations, and accomplishments that celebrate our collective impact.
What began as HUB in a single location in London 2005 has evolved into a global network of people taking action towards a single purpose: impact. As we move forward with the evolution of our global network, we are excited to showcase our purpose and bring ‘Impact’ to our name. Join us and celebrate this addition by participating in our global #HelloImpact campaign.
As each HUB transitions to Impact Hub, #HelloImpact will help us shine the spotlight on what has been there all along--our commitment to Impact. Join us in saying #HelloImpact through the Impact Hub!
