John Peters Biography

A series of events in 1991 changed RAF officer John Peters' life forever. This is not a war story as such, but a very human, moving and, at times, funny story. It is of particular relevance in today's changing times, and John is as busy as ever delivering after dinner and keynote speeches at corporate events.

The impact he has on an audience is reflected by the standing ovations he so often gets and overwhelming response he always receives after his presentations.

John came to the world's attention in January 1991, when his bruised and battered face flashed onto television screens around the world. It was his disfigured image that became a potent symbol of Saddam Hussein's ruthless aggression. His dramatic and sometimes harrowing experiences reach deep into our innermost minds, showing us how we can overcome even our worst fears and nightmares. His war was not all as he expected...

A series of events in 1991 changed RAF officer John Peters' life forever. This is not a war story as such, but a very human, moving and, at times, funny story. It is of particular relevance in today's changing times, and John is as busy as ever delivering after dinner and keynote speeches at corporate events.

The impact he has on an audience is reflected by the standing ovations he so often gets and overwhelming response he always receives after his presentations.

John came to the world's attention in January 1991, when his bruised and battered face flashed onto television screens around the world. It was his disfigured image that became a potent symbol of Saddam Hussein's ruthless aggression. His dramatic and sometimes harrowing experiences reach deep into our innermost minds, showing us how we can overcome even our worst fears and nightmares. His war was not all as he expected - it became a seven-week ordeal of torture and interrogation testing John to the absolute limit and bringing him close to death.

John is an experienced speaker of international repute. He was the sole reader representing the British Armed Forces at the National Gulf Memorial Service, in front of Her Majesty, The Queen and presented the Sir James Martin Lecture at the Royal Aeronautical Society in the presence of Prince Philip. Furthermore, he followed Nelson Mandela on stage in South Africa and achieved a standing ovation!

He presents a roller-coaster ride: you will believe you were there! He provides an incredible descriptive insight of his experiences. He is certainly not a doom and gloom merchant. Far from it - his innate sense of humour and superb timing ensures the audience sees the funny and lighter side of his experience. He is passionate, emotive & challenging. He can seamlessly and skilfully relate his experiences to current business issues.

John has a Master's Degree in Business Administration and was responsible for a cultural change programme in the RAF. This initiative was awarded the 1999 Flight International Aerospace Industry Award for Training and Safety. He is also a former Chair of The Association of MBA's. Since leaving the RAF in 2000, he has been a business consultant and performance coach to business leaders, and he has a business specialising in leadership, team development and communication skills.

He has written two best-selling books and the documentary, 'Tornado Down' was Independent Documentary of the Year and a BAFTA Award Nominee in 1992. He has extensive international TV, radio, PR and media experience and has built up an international speaking reputation, including American, South African, Swedish, Maltese, French, German and Australian audiences.

John is one of the leading motivational speakers in the UK. He is superbly masterful when motivating and inspiring an audience, or when he enthrals guests after dinner or luncheon. They leave with an inspired sense of purpose, with a greater understanding of how to cope with unexpected change and how to drive through these difficulties to set and achieve real goals.

His speaking topics include:

- Leadership

- Teamwork

- Performing Under Pressure

- Dealing with Change
