Collaborative Leadership & Innovation for Impact

A bold shift in the way
we do business.

Businesses & regions are facing existential & systemic challenge. We cannot solve this type of challenge with the same thinking that got us here, nor can we do it alone – your leadership & business models must adapt. Rapidly.

Now is the time to think & act differently.

The Kerry Topp Collective helps you, your business, & your region, collaborate & innovate for new sources of inter-generational impact & value.

We help CxOs, Managing Directors, Senior Executives, & Boards of businesses with $5m-$50m turnover demystify & accelerate new product, service & market growth, & create a positive impact in the world we live, now & into the future.

We improve top line revenue & EBIT, enhance cultural connection by building energy, engagement & trust in collaborations & innovation activities, & we help you measure & create differentiated inter-generational value & impact.

We are different because we are creative technology innovators who use the art of collaboration to deliver value & impact in the now, but inter-generationally for you, your business & region.

We do this via a modern, innovative & disruptive methodology, called ImpactHacking, that demystifies & accelerates collaborative leadership & innovation for impact.

What we stand for.

Our kaupapa is simple, to ‘connect people & technology for the betterment of businesses, regions & their communities.’

Our vision is drawn from & inspired by, the wonderful work of the Te Tauihu Inter-generational Strategy, to be ‘Good Ancestors’.

Based on learnings & insights from change & transformation leadership roles at Air New Zealand, Datacom, & working in consulting & advisory roles with many businesses across New Zealand & Australia, we believe it possible to regenerate the mana of people, place & planet & make money. We firmly believe ‘doing good is good for business, people, place & planet’

Our approach
to change.

We focus on four missions of impact.

We help you identify new sources of impact by enhancing curiosity & your “drive to do’. We believe identifying, exploring & delivering on little experiments, constantly delivered, improved, productionised & embedded in your culture & business processes as quickly & deeply as possible will lead you to new value & impact.

We do this by helping you demystify & accelerate;


We help you create human platforms of trust by building collaborations that unlock new sources of value & enhance mana for all.


We help you identify & accelerate the delIvery of new products, services & markets.


We help you upcycle your people & create the pathway for students & under-represented communities into high-value, future-fit jobs.


We help you explore broader environmental, social & cultural outcomes, attract new sources of capital to amplify impact & we help you measure that impact.

It starts with an approach that hacks for impact.

Our methodology, Impact-hacking, uncovers big challenges & delivers directionally-correct, bite-sized ‘missions of impact’, that progressively lead to company-wide cultural change and transformation & new sources of value & impact.
