Company Director, Peter Baines Consulting
Peter Baines OAM, developed his unique leadership style by leading international identification teams into Indonesia and Thailand following acts of terrorism and the 2004 South East Asian Tsunami. He would go on to work in the counter terrorism area of Interpol, spent time with the United Nations Office of Drug and Crime and also workedin Saudi Arabia and Japan after natural disasters hit those countries. But, it was his work in Thailand that brought the biggest change.
After meeting the children left orphaned by the Tsunami, Peter felt compelled to act and founded an Australian charity called Hands Across the Water which has gone on to create opportunities for hundreds of children across Thailand. Today, Peter has a successful consulting business building engagement through corporate social responsibility and presents across the globe to major corporations and governments on Leadership.
He is the author of two books, Hands Across the Water, and Doing Good by Doing Good which provides a blueprint forbuilding experience-led engagement programs with a focus on shared value. In January 2014, Peter Baines was recognized in the Australia Day honors with thea warding of the Order of Australia Medal for his International Humanitarian work. In 2016 he received the Most Admirable Order of Direkgunabhorn awarded by the King of Thailand for his devotional services to the Kingdom of Thailand.
