Building empowered communities through university. After working as a Civil Engineer, then traveling for 2 years to more than 40 countries, Josh Farr asked himself, "If I could design my dream career, what would I do?"... With experience in student leadership and a passion for the value of campus life at universities, Josh founded his own business, Campus Consultancy, to empower student leaders through entrepreneurial education.
