Jen

Founder & CEO

When I founded ANTZ in 2011 it was with a vision that very few could grasp. How can you make a profit and help people? Well we've proved you can. 

I lead the direction of ANTZ and strategic projects but as the team will tell you, I’m hands-on too.

When I was young I wanted to be a bus conductor, so I could take money from the people who could afford it and decide who could go for free.

Maybe I had a vision of everyone being sat together and united even back then.

Christian

Operations & Marketing Director

I’m operations and marketing director so I make sure things move smoothly in the business and we’re correctly conveying what we’re about in our marketing.

I like challenging myself so I’ve done parachute jumps, sky dives, and even white collar boxing. Unfortunately I was too tall to do wing walking.

If I had a super-power I would slow down time. Life passes far too quickly, and I’ve so much to do!

John

Partnership Management Lead

I look after partnerships within the ANTZ network. I talk to like-minded organisations that want to develop their social purpose so they can grow commercially and give back something to society too.

I was crazy enough to take part in the Pepsi Max Extreme Sports day event – I jumped 150 feet off a crane into a safety net but it was worth it as we raised over £5,000 for a local children’s charity.

The most daring thing I’ve ever done is to abseil off a bridge, as part of an adventure holiday while I was at school. The idea was to overcome my fear of falling from height (unsuccessfully).

My favourite book has to be 'Tuesdays With Morrie’ - it's full of incredible life lessons. I think the one that resonates the most is 'there is no such thing as too late in life’. No matter what the starting point, it's always possible to turn things around, and my role is to help people to do that.

My all-time classic book is ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ by Harper Lee

Until you consider things from his point of view…

Until you climb into his skin and walk around in it”

I hope and look forward to helping others find a new path."

Love music (grew up in the Britpop era)

Favourite song lyric -  Liam Gallagher – Once: 

"But oh, I remember how you used to shine, back then

You went down so easy like a glass of wine, my friend

When the dawn came up you felt so inspired to do it again

But it turns out you only get to do it once"
