About

A lifetime entrepreneur of Palestinian background, Hanan Kattan co-founded Enlightenment Business Solutions as an online marketing company that gives small businesses the tools for outstanding growth. It is the latest addition to her Enlightenment group of companies, which include film production, film sales, a record label and publishing arm.
Her aim with Enlightenment Business Solutions was to address the crucial ‘third step’ in online marketing – converting the extra traffic from higher rankings into actual sales and profits.
Her previous businesses included creating her own hair care brand, Te Tao, which launched an entirely new category of ‘premium mass’ holistic hair products which Marie Claire magazine called ‘beauty with a conscience.’
She is also the producer of two feature films, The World Unseen and I Can’t Think Straight, which have won over 30 awards between them. Her third feature, The House of Tomorrow, was inspired by the TEDxHolyLand conference that Hanan curated with her Israeli partner under her foundation, the Sarif-Kattan Foundation. The film has just completed and she served as producer and co-director alongside her partner Shamim Sarif, an award-winning novelist and director.
She lives in London with Shamim and their two children.
