My Bio

Stride was founded by Nikki de Bruin and Elena Macia in 2014 to address the need to develop employability skills in young people.

Our courses, aimed at children between 10 and 14, give real life work experience, build transferable skills and introduce business and enterprise concepts in an age appropriate way.
We build aspirations, develop employability skills, financial capability, communication, teamwork, resilience & self belief.

Our partnership packages offer businesses the opportunity to reach out to a target market of young people and their parents. Whether the business is looking to build their brand, have contact with a focus group or build a CSR programme that makes a real difference to young people, Stride will make it happen.

We have also worked with charities such as the Mayor's Fund for London in designing and delivering bespoke workshops for young people in primary and secondary schools.

Our team of presenters all come from business backgrounds so they can bring the course content to life and share their own experiences with the pupils.
