Kindred is the careful creation of Nicole, Michael, and Rebecca — three leadership and transformation experts with a passion for shaking things up, positively.

The trio met in 2011 while working at leading research and fundraising organisation, Cancer Research UK. Together, they helped transform this 100-year-old charity into a more dynamic and efficient enterprise, building a digital platform business which now raises over £100m a year. After some time flying solo, their shared ambition of making businesses more sustainable and workplaces more human brought them back together and they founded Kindred in 2020.
