Hi, I’m Debbie So – Head of Partnerships at Impact Hub Islington, and yes, the time has come – I’ve officially resigned from Impact Hub Islington and will be ending with this calendar year. It’s been 5 wonderful years, but I know it’s the right time to leave to pursue a career in design.
Highlights from 2011-2016:
Being part of the BEST & FIRST IMPACT HUB IN THE WORLD!
Building up our Member Hosting and Community Partners team
Innovations in youth entrepreneurship, including Hub Youth Academy and YES Alliance
Facilitating and co-designing our last two Impact Hub Global Gatherings
Onboarding and coaching new Impact Hubs across America, Latin America, EU and Africa
Finding our new home, 27 Dingley Place!
I truly do love the Impact Hub, and I am thankful for the opportunities, experiences, and friends that I’ve made during my time here. I owe a great deal to the organisation and I wish everyone all the best in future endeavours – I know it will be an exciting one.
Cue the photo roll…
