Building self-awareness | Josh Farr Founder Campus Consultancy 2x TEDx Speaker | Ep 7

Formerly an engineer, & with experience in Graduate Recruitment, Josh founded Campus Consultancy to empower young leaders with emotional intelligence & entrepreneurship. Josh has worked with 6036 student leaders (and growing), totalling 20,600+ hours of professional development since March 2017.

The programs help Universities increase student engagement; student leaders feel prepared, confident & creative about their role as leaders, and all students benefit from emotionally intelligent, purpose-driven leadership into their careers.


Although Josh graduated as an engineer, it wasn't until a facilitator came on-site to talk about mental health that he even realised such a role existed.


Become a "facilitator" sparked something inside of him. Josh was always wanting to talk about how peoples day was, how their families were, and he was always intrigued by how we build successful relationships to become better leaders. Josh then went down the rabbit hole of self-development and improvement reading over 100 books in a year.

  • How can we master self-awareness?
