‘It’s what people do not the position they hold that really makes a difference’
When I started this podcast series I always knew I would have the conversation with Peter Baines.
Peter has held many positions and seen sides of humanity many of us are not exposed to. As a forensic copper Peter Baines worked at the cold-face of communities. Throughout his career his work landed him in places like Bali after the Bali Bombings and Thailand after the tsunami.
In this conversation Peter provides a personal insight into the drivers behind our decisions and why when you are rock bottom sometimes the only thing you have left is to help others.
For last 10years that's what he has dedicated his life to. Over 10 years ago he launched Hands Across the Water, charity supporting children at risk in Thailand. The charity now has seven homes across Thailand. The success lies in creating shared experiences through bike rides, treks and social venture programs. Peter asks us to look at and redefine our measures of success.
This is a conversation that will stay with you long after listening.
