Podcast_Tiles_ALL (3).png

Our next guest is Joshua Gore, the President of Bright Futures Society UniSA. Josh & I connected earlier this year when I heard about an ambitious fundraising goal he’d set & how he was bringing students groups together to achieve it. In this episode of The Campus Experience, we talk about Josh’s experience with multiple not-for-profit including Oxfam, AIME & what he’s working on with the Bright Futures Society UniSA. We go really deep into our aligned philosophies on motivating young people to give back by utilizing business acumen & honest self-reflection on one’s own goals & needs. 

Can you help out with a $20,000 fundraiser in Adelaide? Connect with Joshua viawww.linkedin.com/in/joshua-gore/ 

Top quotes from this episode:

“I think there are 2 types of inspired, there’s an inspired that makes you feel good but doesn’t provide any pragmatic detail & then there was this sort of inspired where immediately afterward you pull out a notepad & start writing down how you’re going to change the world.”

“It’s about giving something before you take it.”

“Just because it’s good for the world doesn’t mean it automatically gets a free pass in the proposal stage.”

“You can’t be everything for everyone.”

“If I had a team of 15 people, I’d rather listen to 14 other brains.”

“Coupling that selfless communal, ‘I want to help other people sense,’ with a carrot for yourself, can really drive you to do more for the community.”

“You can be successful individually, you achieve what you want to in life, while [contributing] that benefit to society.”
