Head of Advocacy at the Big Issue Group

“I had the privilege of working alongside Abiodun during our time at Bite The Ballot. He’s one of the most industrious, optimistic, driven and decent campaigners I know. As Bite The Ballot’s national campaigns lead, he was central to the well-coordinated success of major campaigns during an extremely busy period; including NVRD 2016, a London mayoral race and #TurnUp (which inspired 1.1m electoral registration applications ahead of the EU referendum). His skill as an impartial and experienced community organiser continues to give him an edge in the democratic empowerment space. And his knowledge of the barriers to civic participation – be they cultural, community or constitutional – drive his strong policy, media and management-styles. Abiodun’s oral advocacy skills are excellent. His calm, confident manner gives him the ability to inspire diverse audiences and attract (and retain) new partner organisations with ease. It’s a pleasure to recommend him.”
