Robert is responsible for the strategic direction and running of Enabling Enterprise as an organisation. As treasurer of an alternative provision school in Hackney he came to see the importance of educational outcomes, particularly for those from less privileged backgrounds.

Prior to Enabling Enterprise, Robert worked in Public Sector Strategy and Operations at KPMG as well as at Social Finance.

With a degree in Italian and music, Chris’s career started in media, organising BAFTA ceremonies and working in TV production. Then changing course with a desire to make a difference, he trained to become a primary class teacher and phase leader in Hackney.

Chris joined Enabling Enterprise after having seen the impact of the projects in his own school. Chris leads our work in North London, and in the East of England and loves running projects in schools and businesses which help prepare young people for success in the real world, while still having lots of fun along the way!

Interim Head of School Network

Prior to working at Enabling Enterprise, Maryam was a Primary School Teacher for 7 years in a South London School. She discovered a passion for project-driven learning teaching her students about the media industry with the Lambeth CLC, The Southbank Centre and the BFI.

This inspired Maryam to work for Enabling Enterprise, where she now manages the South London & South East region.

Claire always wanted to be a teacher, and share her love of history.

She brings this passion for learning and for developing enterprise skills to her role at Enabling Enterprise in her role as Regional Manager for the North West.
