My WHY is to enable others to be extraordinary so that they can do extraordinary things.


How do you define leadership?


Peter helps individuals and organizations harness the power of Why. The result is extraordinary cultures and sustainable high performance.

He illustrates his insights by drawing on examples from his previous flying, military, and industry career to explain principles that can be applied in any business.

Quality speakers are so good, and Peter is one of the best. Thoroughly inspiring and useful. Slick presentation that engaged you from the moment he stepped on stage.


Peter’s presentation was sensational – an inspiration to our delegates. The feedback I received from various delegates was all positive and I know that Peter had the opportunity to speak to a few of our member delegates, supplier partners and staff afterwards. The people that I spoke to said they found Peter to be engaging on stage, and that they could relate to his presentation on both a business and personal level.


When we collaborated on our Leadership Summit content, I asked Peter to do two things: give our people genuine tools that they could use in their regular work environment and drive behavioral changes that would help them act like leaders instead of managers. He succeeded beautifully! I see evidence EVERY DAY that your material has lifted their performance as leaders and created its own momentum. Peter, I want you to realise what an amazing impact your work has had for us!
