Ep 020 – Conversations with Peter Baines OAM


Joining me on the podcast this month is Peter Baines.

Pete 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.

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.

To say I was inspired, moved to do more and humbled by our conversation is not enough. There were moments during this chat that I had to hold back to the tears and there were moments of deep connection and the consequent need for silence that effected me for days later.

Peter Baines embodies the concept of this podcast – that we can all unleash the brilliance within.
