Peter
Baines

Leading disaster management specialist.

Profile

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 worked in 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.

Current work

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 for building experience led engagement programs with a focus on shared value.

Previous experience

Awards: In January 2014, Peter Baines was recognised in the Australia Day honours with the awarding of the Order of Australia Medal for his International Humanitarian work and in 2016 he received the Most Admirable Order of Direkgunabhorn awarded by the King of Thailand for his devotion and service to the Kingdom of Thailand.

Feedback
Peter was fantastic and his presentation was definitely talked about by Mercer both during the evening and the next day at our last day of our Conference. We loved how he tied it all back to the benefits of building strong relationships both inside and outside of our immediate team/s, and how to make the tough decisions. Peter Mercer Australia Pty Ltd
