Peter Baines on crisis, leadership without authority and why the future of charity is profit

Peter Baines on crisis, leadership without authority and why the future of charity is profit

Peter Baines is an extraordinary individual. A former forensic investigator, he led international identification teams into Indonesia and Thailand following acts of terrorism and the South East Asian Tsunami. It was his experience of meeting youth left orphaned by that horrific natural disaster in Thailand that compelled Peter to create an Australian charity called Hands Across the Water which has gone on to dramatically improve the lives of both those children and their communities. Against the backdrop of the current acts of terrorism in Europe and the Middle East, Peter and I spoke about the challenges of leadership in times of crisis, the power of community engagement, and why corporate social responsibility should be a profit centre in the 21st century enterprise.
