Amandeep Shergill - Director of Accounts & Finance

Amandeep joined Revolution Hive at the start of 2016, having known Keshav for over 15 years. He aligned with the company values and principles, aswell as seeing the potential for expansion within the business. For him, Revolution Hive is not your normal day to day company. Its core values lie in social reform and personal growth and development. Someone once said 'be the change you want to see in the world', and as far as Amandeep is concerned this is a good a platform as any to do so.

Education & Leadership Facilitators

Aisha Ajona

Revolution Hive creates spaces for young people to be self-reflective, develop critical analysis skills, and be inspired. We create change agents and excellent civic leaders. The continued development of the world is in the work of Revolution Hive.

Femi Awoyemi

It is important that we equip young people with life skills and tools to process information so they can make their own informed opinions on how they feel about it. This will also prepare them for the future and empower them to be the change we need them to be.

Emerciana Desouza

We are experiencing rapid changes in the world requiring different skills, knowledge and abilities. This needs to be reflected in the learning environments that young people are within so that they can best prepare. Personally, I am excited to be able to cover essential topics that I wish I had learnt sooner!

Nisani Gnanasoorian

Knowledge alone is no longer enough. There are several life skills e.g. networking, team work and communication, that are vital to excel in the ‘real world’ post education. Sometimes students are academically advanced but lack the life skills necessary to reach their full potential. Simple workshops enhancing these skills can improve the students career prospectus vastly.

Nik Haddadi

The work we do at Revolution Hive is imperative since it equips the next generation with life-long learning tools, preparing them for the challenges of tomorrow. As an avid advocate of human welfare I firmly believe that there is an education that schools do not teach, and this is where the work of RevHive begins.

Liz Hibberd

As a passionate educator, I love knowledge and learning and I thrive on collaborating and engaging with young people. Having lived and worked overseas for the last 8 years I am an outspoken advocate of global issues and intercultural learning and am keen to be part of a team that empowers and upskills the future!

Kate Newman

In a world where we are slowly becoming more and more disconnected with ourselves and the world around us I think the work of Revolution Hive is critical. It promotes a community of impassioned, engaged individuals who believe in the power of their infinite potential.

Mohammed Usman

I have supported young people in building their skills nationally as I have been an ambassador for the Barclays LifeSkills Programme since 2014, and the Deputy Chair of the LifeSkills Youth Advisory Council alongside Karen Brady since 2016. Also, I am a youth advisor to the iWill Campaign, and sit on the business pioneer group.

Nonhlanhla Makuyana

I believe that the youth of today are the key to creating much needed social change and they have the power to tear apart systems that are defunct in the contemporary world in order to replace them with fairer systems and institutions. From my experience in working with young people in schools as a politics mentor to BME students, I have felt disappointed in the way that the curriculum doesn’t educate young people about the real world and what it means to be leaders rather it constrains them to institutions that are outdated.

Lisa Jelly

I’m a professional life coach and previously an Assistant Programme Manager for The Challenge.

Company Values

We have a very strong growth focused culture. Here’s a few of our values & what you can expect from a career at Revolution Hive:

What If It Was 10 Times That?
We’re a team that cares about thinking big and we think 10x. So if we’re talking about a project, or a workshop, or a video. We’re asking - what if we were doing 10x that? How would we approach it? This is a community of growth & expansion on all levels.
Innovation is Rewarded
We’re passionate about doing things differently. In all aspects of our work we strive to find creative ways to achieve our goals. From delivering training & workshops to the way we made this site - we are here to innovate.
Work is Play
A job doesn’t have to be boring or follow a dull mechanical pattern. We work & play at the same time. Creativity & productivity flow from a space of ease & happiness.
Represent Your Revolution
Obviously, so much of our work is about change. But we believe that a big part of that is making sure we represent the change we want to see. That’s different for different people but we’re all striving to represent in our day to day lives the change we want to see.
Thanks For The Cut
We’re grateful for learning & feedback. So we have a “thanks for the cut” philosophy to mistakes & constructive criticism. Check out our thanks for the cut page for more.
Honour Your Craft
As much as we’re all about innovation & bringing fun to our work. We’re also very dedicated to extremely high levels of quality in all aspects of our work.
