Name: Eriko Kobayashi
Job: Million Makers Manager
Location: Prince’s Trust House, London
My story: With a background of working in the charity sector I was thrilled when I then landed a role with The Trust’s Corporate Partnership team back in 2013.
For the past year I’ve managed our flagship entrepreneurial challenge, Million Makers. The competition gives me a chance to meet and work with a wide range of our corporate partners. I am always impressed by the commitment and passion participating teams have to support our young people. With all the different ideas I get asked lots of weird and wonderful questions, which keeps me on my toes!
Born and bred in London I love the city and all it has to offer, but am proud of my Japanese/Scottish roots too. Outside of work I like to jump between hobbies which range from being part of a book club, singing in a choir, running, travelling and exploring the latest trends.
