Why set up a business to train student leaders?

“I was the President of the Civil & Environmental Engineering Society at UNSW in 2013.

After going into a graduate role in engineering, I realised that it was not aligned with my values or passions. I loved working 1-1 with people, creating communities & bringing events & experiences to life.

I took 2-years off to travel & reflect. When I returned to Australia I worked as the Graduate Recruitment Manager for a Not-For-Profit for 18-months. I engaged with clubs across Victoria but realised almost all had the same challenges I faced as a club-leader, a lack of training, prior experience & annual turnover, resulting in less than optimal results.

I decided to do something about it.

I interviewed hundreds of club leaders across Australia & identified their common problems.

With a lot of support, mentoring & guidance, Campus Consultancy was created to deliver the highest quality professional development to student leaders at universities across Australia.”
