What is your nickname? PB.

What were you doing before Enablo? For the past seven years, I have worked primarily in the eComm space, in both developer and technical project management roles.

What’s your vision of employee experience for the future? Where remote work is brought closer than ever before using the metaverse. Imagine working from your desk at home and being able to collaborate with your colleague who may be on the other side of the world, as though they are physically next to you.

What excites you most about Enablo? To see how we will revolutionize work and adopt the metaverse to make that happen.

What is the achievement you’re most proud of? I went from being an animator with no prior technical knowledge to graduating with a Masters in IT in just two years. It was a complete 180-degree career change that I have found extremely rewarding.

Chief Operating Officer

Steve Zan

What is your nickname? My kids, and increasingly their friends, call me Dage. I’m not sure how that came about!

What were you doing before Enablo? I headed up the Internal Communications and Organisational Change team at Vanguard, and before that was the General Manager of Marketing Delivery at National Australia Bank.

What’s your vision of employee experience for the future? Employee experience is not about free food and office perks but connecting, empowering, trusting, and valuing your people. The real trick is achieving this aspiration regardless of where, when, and how your people work. And I’ve had first-hand experience of the competitive advantage a connected, enabled, and trusted workforce brings to their organization.

What excites you most about Enablo? Enablo excites me because we are on the frontline of the future of work. Every day I have the privilege of working with customers who positively impact their bottom line by making work better for their people by valuing collaboration, connection, and community.

How do you continue to grow and develop as a leader? I’ve developed a habit of continuous learning through reading, completing courses, or having conversations with people I admire from all walks of life. One of my favorite sayings is that every day is a school day, and curiosity is one of the key traits I look for in members of the Enablo team.

What’s your vision of employee experience for the future? Modern workplaces need to promote an employee-first culture and values, providing tools that empower their workforce to do their job efficiently while simultaneously breaking down silos and encouraging collaboration and recognition.

What excites you most about Enablo? The opportunity to work with world-class workplace technologies in a young and growing company alongside a talented group of peers.

What excites you most about Enablo? Enablo’s culture is dynamic and professional. The leadership is visionary and passionate. A large work family that is growing fast.

What’s the one thing you couldn’t live without? Two things… coffee and chilli (obviously not together).

Chief Executive Officer

Andrew Knott

Andrew’s led marketing and customer transformation for some of the biggest brands, across multiple categories worldwide. He’s customer-obsessed and believes that an organization’s success is built from the foundation of a highly-engaged world-class team.

What is your nickname? Andrew. (I’ve lived overseas too long. Only Aussies seem to want to give everyone a nickname).

What were you doing before Enablo? I was running Verizon for the Publicis Groupe based in New York. Great team, exciting times (launch of 5G). A few challenges along the way (this little thing called Covid and the merger of T-Mobile & Sprint). But most importantly, we delivered fantastic results! I would have loved a better way to engage my team, though…

What’s your vision of employee experience for the future? One where there is much greater alignment between the objectives of the organization and the goals of individual employees. The opportunity to create meaningful work, facilitated by transparent communication built on a foundation of engagement and trust. Employee commitment will directly correlate to overall business performance and will be focused on as a way to create a distinct competitive advantage.

What excites you most about Enablo? To make a genuine and positive difference to the companies we partner with. To see the change in the way their employees engage. To observe the impact it has on their financial performance. And to play a role in building this fantastic company called Enablo that will help make it all happen!

What’s the most important trait you look for when hiring employees? Curiosity. Constantly wanting to learn and grow. In working out if there is a better way to do things that will deliver greater impact. In attempting to understand consumers in whatever form, what motivates them, and the opportunities that presents as a result. In life, by being open to possibilities and the potential that arises from those – especially by working at Enablo!

What excites you most about Enablo? The most exciting part about Enablo is the unlimited possibilities. Enablo has the ability to adapt as our workforce is evolving, and they’re doing it with such a positive outlook that the culture they’ve created is inspiring!

I’ve led production on a number of AR and VR apps across multiple emerging platforms, established a virtual production studio and immersive technology festival, and advised businesses on new spatial technologies and opportunities.

What’s your vision of employee experience for the future? I can see a time when employees have the same access to collaboration and connection with their colleagues no matter where they live or where they are working from on any particular day. Future immersive devices will have the ability to bring back the spontaneity and dynamic nature of the workplace without forcing everyone into the same geographic location. They will also be able to optimize our work time by giving us the ideal virtual computing setup at any time that is infinitely extendable and flexible.

What excites you most about Enablo? Enablo is an incredible blend of very talented people who are also very passionate about what they are delivering. They live and breathe the benefits of better workplace communication and work very hard to give every client the best experience. They also have an enthusiasm and excitement for the benefits of new technology that make it the perfect place to innovate.
