Tokunbo Ajasa-Oluwa will lead a workshop on setting up and running a social enterprise at our Be Inspired day at Birkbeck, University of London.  He will also be joining our panel of leading men to share his tips on leadership.

Tokunbo

Tokunbo is a former journalist and founder of Catch 22 (C22), a dynamic social enterprise that engaged, trained and championed excluded young media talent – i.e. those that want experience but can’t get any due to their lack of experience.  Running as a parallel to his career in journalism, he has been involved with youth development work for over a decade. In 1999 Tokunbo was co-founder of the ORIGIN rites of passage programme for young men of African African-Caribbean descent – the programme still runs till this day. His youth experience includes mentoring, workshop facilitating, one-to-one counselling and programme coordinating for youth based in London since 1996.  In October 2007 Tokunbo was appointed one of the 35 Social Enterprise Ambassadors on the three-year Cabinet Office endorsed nationwide programme.

Tokunbo is a Fellow of the School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) and has recently been appointed the head of GoThinkBig – a new social impact initiative by O2 and Bauer Media, that supports the career aspirations of under-25’s in the UK.
