He completed his expedition to the North Magnetic Pole, hauling a sled 700km across the frozen Arctic Sea, 12 months after undergoing his second bout of major heart surgery.
He has survived being taken by an avalanche in Antarctica and falling the equivalent of 14 storeys of an office building where he lay for 3 days.
Following his trips to the wilderness, Peter went on to raise more than $14million for Australian Charities and produced 3 TV documentaries. His biography "A Step Too Far" when released by Pan Macmillan became an instant best seller.
Peter founded The Leadership Group in 2002 to teach others the lessons he had learned from his expeditions to the poles and years of skippering yachts leading both novices and experienced sailors to cross the Pacific, Atlantic & Southern Oceans, South China, Mediterranean, Japanese and Irish Seas.
In 2014, Peter led the world's first philanthropic Indigenous expedition to Antarctica, 'Outback to Icecap.’
