Find Your Spark (Social Enterprise) was founded in 2012 by Michelle, who had five years experience working with young people within schools by this point.  Find Your Spark means finding your passion, what ignites you to get up every morning excited about the day ahead.  Michelle went on to study Coaching Psychology and Career Coaching at Masters level so that Find Your Spark could deliver positive coaching psychology programmes and career coaching.  It was then set up as a Social Enterprise in December 2014 following funding from Investec/Beyond Business.  As a Social Enterprise, the majority of the profits made are reinvested into the company.
