An Australian by birth, Josh Begbie grew up in the Philippines and Hong Kong and returned here after finishing his university studies and MBA. On his return, he joined Crossroads Foundation, a local charity that works to see the needs of the poor linked up with resources that will help them develop. He has worked for Crossroads for more than a decade and headed up their fair trade initiatives for the last eight years. In addition, Josh continues to help the broader fair trade community by serving on the boards of both Fair Trade Hong Kong Foundation and World Fair Trade Organisation-Asia. Nothing brings him greater joy than seeing business used to positively impact those at the beginning of the supply chain.
