Nicolas 

Nicolas grew up in a house full of children and always loved it. He knew he was talented, but couldn't find his way at school, so he decided that one day he would like to help other kids like him.

 

After several years of Globe Trotting and art performances (street art, music), he became a children's entertainer in 2019, to educate them and help them to release their potentiel without fear and to just be themselves. He has worked closely with neuro-divergent kids in particular. His goal is to help them release their own talent because we all have so much to offer the world !

William Martinez

Will is a Financial Planning & Analysis Manager at one of the world's largest banks, based in London.

His day-to-day involves conducting complex financial analysis of strategic business decisions, meaning he knows exactly what makes a business tick.

Will first realised the power of teaching children about money and business through volunteering work at schools in London, where he conducted workshops teaching primary school children about managing money and the importance of the banking system.

He was overwhelmed by the level of engagement children showed with these seemingly unexciting topics, when presented in the right way.
