The insight works: transforming the impact of public contracts 

Our STORY

From working on some of the smallest, to some of the largest business support contracts in the country. These are some of the highlight from our journey.

John Cornbill

THE INSIGHT WORKS LAUNCHED BACK IN 2006 WHEN JOHN CORNBILL LEFT THE CIVIL SERVICE WITH AN IDEA TO TRANSFORM THE INDUSTRY HE HAD DEPARTED

“I was always frustrated in the civil service because there seemed to be this huge opportunity for innovation, but the system wouldn’t allow it. People just didn’t have the time or were willing to take the risk. Through The Insight Works, I thought I could create a consultancy that had the creative space help the public sector succeed.”

John – Managing Director

INTRODUCINg

 impact.

Impact aims to unlock the brilliance that exists within public services. We know that public contracts

are having a profound impact on people, businesses, the environment and the economy. But that story isn't being told, and it's time to change that, and showcase the amazing impact projects are having. It begins, with Impact.
