We are pleased to announce our Keynote Speaker for the upcoming AIMS National Conference.
Our Keynote speaker will be Peter Baines OAM.
Peter Baines OAM is one of Australia’s most effective ‘Socialprenuers’. A former police officer, he is the founder of the well known charity ‘Hands Across the Water’, and as such has created opportunities for hundreds of children in Thailand.
Peter’s humanitarian work has been recognised with significant national and international awards. In January 2014, he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for his International Humanitarian work. In 2016, he received the Most Admirable Order of Direkgunabhorn awarded by the King of Thailand for his devotional services to the Kingdom of Thailand.
A powerful keynote speaker, Peter’s presentations take his audience from laughter to tears as he recounts his story and delivers the lessons he has learned by managing some of the world’s most devastating crises. His tales of the way in which he has contributed to the lives of many less fortunate people in the world, and the realisation of his personal dream are absolutely inspiring.
We welcome Peter and look forward to his Keynote Address which is bound to be both entertaining and inspirational.
