GUEST SPEAKER – Peter Wright (Fair Dinkum Leadership)

Peter Wright began his career as a Chartered Accountant with two international accounting firms auditing a diverse range of organisations from not-for profit and Christian schools to multi-million multi-national corporations in the finance, media, technology, manufacturing, agriculture and education sectors. This provided Peter with unique insights into strategic, financial, people, and ethical leadership. After 10 years, Peter transitioned to senior management working for a further 18 years in the health and welfare sector including CEO of a rural hospital & health service and COO of several church-based organisations dealing with aged care, homelessness, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, foster care, gambling and addiction rehabilitation etc. Peter has served on numerous not-for-profit boards and industry committees. The son of a Christian minister, Peter has always had a deep desire to practically live out the Christian faith in all of life.


Peter and his wife Desleigh have been involved in mission and community development in Zambia for 15 years, and they also studied Theology in the USA. Together they have established Fair Dinkum LIFE Ltd, a Christian not-for-profit ministry helping people think through the big questions of life and see the relevance of Jesus Christ to life, leadership, education and development. Their aim is to help people understand, share, and live out a fair dinkum faith.
