Peter is an Associate Fellow of Institute of Managers and Leaders of Australia and New Zealand. He has a Master of Business Administration from the Australian Institute of Management and a Certificate in Business Analytics from Harvard Business School making him a valuable addition to the Y board of directors. Peter loves getting out into the great outdoors and is grateful to live in an area with so many national and state parks, amazing rivers and beautiful lakes where he can kayak, camp and fish his weekends away. To Peter the Y means memories, fond ones and new ones. It’s a place of fun and opportunity. A place for communities to come together, to make new friends and try new things. It’s a wonderful environment for young people to find something they enjoy or can be passionate about. His most immediate aspiration is to be able to travel the world again.
