Peter Shepherd

Peter Shepherd - Coach and facilitator

Pete Shepherd is like a human periscope because he helps others see things they can’t*. He has coached, led and supported more than 10,000 leaders and executives around the world from over 150 companies including Google, Slack, Kraft Heinz, Amazon, UNICEF, Westpac, Woolworths, and The Australian Navy.

Pete has an insatiable curiosity and knack for asking just the right questions to help his clients get unstuck. He believes leadership is a choice not a title and that the three most important skills of a modern leader are humility, empathy and curiosity. He works closely with his clients to help them understand, practice and hone these skills every single day.

*He's also 6”7’ so the metaphor works on a few levels.

Beyond the corporate world Pete has worked closely with some of the world’s brightest minds including 20 times best selling author Seth Godin and multiple Booker Prize winner, and author of The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood. He has clients who have built multi-million dollar companies and others who’ve raised nearly that much for charities. Others have performed on Broadway, been nominated for Australian of the Year, and produced Emmy and Cannes award winning TV shows.

Pete is a world class communicator, storyteller and thinker with a delightful presence that immediately engages audiences all over the world. He is a TEDx speaker, cohost of the popular podcast The Long and The Short Of It, and former Head Coach of the altMBA.

As Seth Godin once described: “Pete is the real deal and the sort of person you’d want to be in the boat if you were going on a long swim in uncharted waters.”
