Peter James Barden
Peter is a social entrepreneur, founder of Graduate Unleashed, a programme designed to motivate undergraduates to take greater ownership of their professional lives via educational and case study-led seminars. Peter graduated from International Relations MSc in September 2008 directly into the eye of the financial storm. Faced with limited options he undertook two unpaid London-based internships over 2009 for an NGO and an MP and sustained by hosting pub quizzes 5 nights a week. Returning to London, he played a central role in establishing the Peace One Day Patrons Programme. The experience of curating inspirational and educational events for SMEs nurtured a refined understanding of what it takes to kick start and grow a social enterprise.
