Peter Baines is an International Leadership Speaker, author, business consultant and the Founder of Hands Across the Water which brings a charity and a social enterprise together. He will make audiences laugh and cry, meaning his stories and valuable leadership lessons are remembered long after the conference.
Baines served 20+ years with the NSW Police leading teams into crisis and disaster scenes across South East Asia, first into Bali after the bombings, then into Thailand, Japan and he would also work in Jeddah in Saudi Arabia advising the government on capacity building and leadership. His final days in the police were working with Interpol on building counter terrorism capacity.
The biggest change in direction came after meeting children left without parents in Thailand following the Boxing Day Tsunami. To support those children he started a charity called Hands Across the Water and that has gone on to build homes across Thailand and supports the building of stronger communities. They have a focus on the long term care and currently have 47 of their children studying at University.
In his leadership presentations he discuss the importance of:
* Leadership without Authority;
* Why our leaders need presence;
* Clarity of Purpose;
* And how we can build engagement through Shared Experiences.
He recently launched a new keynote that explores:
* The value of Embracing Ambiguity;
* Why we should possess purposeful resilience;
* How ruthless empathy can shape lasting culture; and
* The value of fostering diversity within our circle of influence
When he is not in Thailand working with the teams on the ground, he is traveling the globe speaking to organisations sharing the stories and lessons learnt from his diverse experiences.

"How much does it cost to book Peter Baines for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final Peter Baines booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Peter Baines charge for an event. Also, thier speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price too. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
There is low probability to book Peter Baines for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Peter Baines agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Peter Baines, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Peter Baines booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Peter Baines, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
