Peter Hughes was the man whose swollen and blistered face we saw on television during the shocking first hours of the news coverage from the Bali bombing in October 2002. He literally took our breath away when we heard him quietly tell rescuers he was okay and to help those worse off than him. Looking at him, we could see that he was badly injured himself. And indeed he

Later, he lapsed into a month-long, coma during which he briefly died three times while on life support. He later went on a long recovery program under the tough love of Australian of the Year Dr Fiona Wood.

Peter's positive message is reality based, filled with wisdom and inspiration, shaped by a lifetime of learning as well as his experiences as part of the Bali bombing tragedy. Peter's humorous, anecdotal and compelling talk motivates and moves audiences to exceed personal and professional expectations.

Corporations, sporting groups, associations, schools and other groups looking for inspiration and motivation in their own lives will not be disappointed by Peter's account of that day and life beyond 'Bali.'

Peter has spoken to dozens of business groups, sporting clubs, schools and colleges both in Australia
and internationally, including Wesfarmers, AMP, NAB, Wizard Home loans, Spotless Group, Western Bulldogs,
West Coast Eagles and the Australian Cricket team.
