Stellar Entrepreneur

At the helm of the agency is Natalie O’Hanna – CEO & President of IMPACT365. As an experience influencer for the past 30 years, her career has spanned nearly every facet of entrepreneurship running and optimizing hospitality, events, entertainment and organizations.

“I’ve crawled my way through the trenches of being a hostess, to late nights behind a bar to training and onboarding teams, to fearlessly venturing my own start - up in 2001.”

Her newfound momentum shifted to Mergers and Acquisitions and running a global membership organization based in Dallas, HQ in Chicago for 8 years.

“I paid close attention, consuming every morsel of knowledge I could, in each position I held, from the age of 17 until now, to be the absolute best I could be whether I crafted a perfect sugary cocktail or mastered a bride and grooms flawless wedding day or led an organization and its members to the 3rd largest of 59 offices.”

“I self-taught Grit. Grind. Failure. Motivation. Defeat. Ideation. Vision. Success. Heart. Faith. Fearlessness. Gratitude.”

That path of perseverance and tenacity paid off,  leading Natalie to acquire IMPACT365, an 18-year strong event and marketing agency servicing corporate, charitable, non-profit and professional clientele in Chicagoland.

“I am thankful for what I have accomplished, but I’m not done. My past got me here, but my passion keeps me here.”
