Peter Fisher is a 1974 graduate of architecture at Sydney University. Like all good architecture graduates in those days, he pursued an acting career, which spanned nearly 20 years, with extensive experience in theatre, film and television.

In 1991, yearning for change, he found himself in the world of corporate communication consultancies.

In 1995, aware of the need for a more imaginative and vigorous approach to corporate training and development, Peter created his own company, Act One! , drawing on the fundamental methodologies of an actor's training, to design innovative and highly interactive sessions with a strong focus on behavioural issues related to leadership, personal development and team development within corporations.

Over the years, Peter has earned a reputation as an energetic facilitator and designer of unique purpose built learning environments.

Peter has developed a solid corporate client base, contributing to a large number of senior executive leadership programs for many clients across Australia and overseas, as well as workshops in leadership presence, personal impact and influence, corporate story telling, teamwork and collaboration, performance in presentation and creative decision making.

Peter has been an adjunct faculty member of the Australian Graduate School of Management for the past 14 years, where he has designed and facilitated many executive programs.

In 2011 he won the Australian School of Business Award for outstanding adjunct faculty program delivery.

His workshops and coaching not only have a personal and group impact but also an impact on business culture and bottom line.

Peter has also directed, "theatricalised" and MC'ed many corporate events and conferences across Australia in theatres and even in a circus!

He also offers a personal coaching service for Senior Executives and CEO's.

Peter lives in Tamarama, in Sydney, by the sea, with his partner, son and daughter.

He loves surfing, ocean swimming, camping, great theatre, movies, live music, cooking great food for friends and family and messing about in his herb garden.
