Peter Greste spent two decades reporting from the front line in the world’s most dangerous countries before making headlines himself following his own incarceration in an Egyptian prison. Charged with threatening national security and enduring a sham trial, solitary confinement and detention for 400 days, Greste himself became a victim of the new global war on journalism.
Peter will talk about his experience and how the power of maintaining a solid focus and having a clear sense of mission and purpose helped him build resilience. He admits to not being a fan of Twitter but acknowledges that the influence and impact of social media helped in his release through one of the world’s biggest social media campaigns, #freeAJstaff, that rallied international pressure for his release.
Peter has a powerful presentation that will leave you to ponder your own sense of focus and purpose, and how everyone and every business needs to be resilient.
