A non-existent word coined by corporate advertising, marketing and business drones to make their work sound far more useful, exciting and beneficial to humanity than it really is. This term is most frequently used in "team building" seminars and conferences in which said drones discuss the most effective ways to convince consumer zombies to purchase crap they clearly do not need or even want.

consumers who appreciate the stronger quality and heritage cues. The new
advertising has a distinctive and impactful creative look which we believe
will stand out against both our competitors and the spirit category in

Duh-weebish for "significant".
Notwithstanding the canonical convergence of sustainable frameworks within the infrastructures of business on demand, the logistics of opportunistic legerdemain in this example is impactful.
