Peter is an inspiring leader and compelling storyteller with a magnetic and engaging personality. He leads movements that connect people to their shared humanity. At TEDxPerth, his message of human connection moved the audience to both tears and laughter. His performance transformed attendees into participants and the event into an impromptu dance party. Peter promotes social harmony by erasing the barriers that separate us - he acts as a catalyst for people to connect meaningfully with one another. He is an excellent choice where strong community organising skills are required, or where inspiring action, recognising our shared humanity or disrupting social convention are themes.
