Dr. Peter Gamwell
“Peter draws on decades of first-hand experience in education, creativity, leadership and learning backed by cutting edge research. He is an extraordinary story-teller who uses compelling anecdotes and real-life stories on which to reveal implementable solutions to his audience’s own work. ‘Inspirational’ is too simple word to describe Peter as a speaker and thought-leader. He is a mover and changemaker our world needs now more than ever before.” Pasi Sahlberg, Author and Speaker, internationally renowned expert in education who has advised numerous governments and systems around the world
Peter delivers dynamic and powerful keynote presentations and workshops on a variety of topics pertaining to learning, leadership, and creativity and their profound impact on individual and organizational learning and health. These presentations are not only relevant to schools and educators, but can be applied to any organization, especially those looking to build an innovative culture.
Audiences are delighted and energized by Peter’s unique style. He doesn’t pretend to have all the answers. Instead, he embraces the uncertainty we all feel regarding the complexities of our times, and leads us to make sense of our world in positive, realistic ways. He draws on the depth of his research and the range of his leadership experiences to engage audiences in informed dialogue about possible pathways forward – and uses storytelling and humor to illustrate his messages.
Whether your organization is involved with education, business, government or not-for-profit, he can work with you to customize a keynote presentation, or a half- or full-day workshop tailored to your specific needs and organizational goals.
The Wonder Wall
“At last, a book which stands courageous at the crossroads where creative theory and practice meet; that Shangri-La where innovation and imagination thrive. Packed with suggestions and practical ideas, it draws a map for all those who believe there is always a better way. It gives leaders the confidence and the strategies to develop those conditions in which individual and group potential can be released. A must-read for all threshold adventurers. I have only one criticism - I wish I'd written it.”
