GV Group Chief Executive Supports Youth Event
Tevin Tobun, chief executive of logistics company for the foodservice sector Gate Ventures (GV Group), joined other high-profile business leaders to speak to young people at a special event at the House of Commons.
Organised by London-based social enterprise Inspirational YOU which Tobun chairs, the ‘Young Men – Letter to My 15-Year Old Self’ discussion focused on opportunities for students aged over 14 and graduates in competitive industries, including legal, tech and entertainment.
Tobun offered advice on how to climb the ladder and succeed in business, as well as insight into what it’s like to work in the hospitality industry.
The young audience also received tips on balancing work, personal life and wellbeing – and on the importance of having a career mentor and sponsor.
