Pete has been awarded the status of Honorary Fellow of the Australian Institute of Business Wellbeing, Sydney Business School and University of Wollongong.
Pete Jensen’s life so far has been like an exhilarating roller coaster ride, from the depths of despair to the heights of business success as a highly experienced consultant, coach and Transformational expert. Not one to stay disheartened for long, Pete says his experiences have taught him optimism and resilience.
Pete is an expert in personal, team and leadership development. Over the last decade Pete has taught, trained and consulted internationally, speaking to and motivating thousands of people having travelled to over 30 countries. Pete’s appearances in the media plus his regular thought provoking articles published in newspapers and magazines such as the ‘Australian Business Solutions’ has made him a sought-after speaker and transformational consultant on the International Stage.
He is the Author of “Lessons in Happiness from the Third World – How the West got so Depressed and what to do about it”. His early years shaped him into the inspiring achiever he is today: as a child he lived with his Danish missionary parents in South Africa, often travelling to remote villages with his father.
After a stint in Australia as a Rotary Exchange Student, Pete then obtained his Commerce degree at the University of Witwatersrand as well as an Honours degree in Economics and a Higher Diploma of Education.
Every day is an adventure to Pete. After achieving a massive weight loss, exercise is now a huge priority in his life. He is an inspiration, achieving state volleyball colours and representation as well as completing his first marathon and mini-triathlon, playing squash and tennis, going on safari in South Africa, parachuting, para-gliding, jet boating, scuba diving and cage diving with crocodiles. Each morning he wakes thinking, ‘What’s my adventure for today?’
His sense of adventure and passion for achievement are not confined to business and sport – he also speaks 4 languages, plays the guitar and musical saw and writes poetry.
Pete lives in Melbourne, Australia.
