Campus was co-created by Jason Pemberton and Samantha Jones who, between them, have 20 years of experience leading, working, and training in the outdoors.
After a successful career as a Logistics Officer with the Royal New Zealand Air Force, Samantha resigned to pursue higher education. With a deep understanding of supply chain systems, whilst studying Sam founded the ethical clothing and uniform company Little Yellow Bird, which she continues to run.
Starting his career in the Not-for-Profit world, Jason's background in Human Resources and Psychology has led to him supporting hundreds of individuals through life and career transitions in New Zealand and abroad. He is involved with a number of training programmes and holds several governance roles.
With increasing global awareness and understanding of the social and environmental challenges facing our society, individuals are turning towards purposeful work at an increasing rate. Having each worked in these environments for many years, Sam and Jason have an understanding of the difficulties in transitioning from mainstream work to the impact economy.
Campus was designed to support individuals through this transition process in a structured and supportive way, and draws on literature relating to Mental Health and Wellbeing, Complex Systems Theory, Organisational Design, High-Impact Philanthropy, and Human Resource Development.
