Peter Danby

Peter was talking to Mark Thompson

Who is Peter?

Peter spent time as a military officer (Commando forces) who then turned his attention to developing other leaders. He impresses with his unique outlook and challenge to the limitations we can place on ourselves, whether for familial, cultural, or personal reasons. All of his recent work has been related to developing the hidden potential of others through outdoor-based activities and connection to both inner and outer worlds. Often funding projects from his own pocket, Peter is not one who can sit still in the face of issues he perceives can be changed. This authentic stance led him to found Small Acts of Kindness, a human development charity, taking his deeply held vision of contribution, compassion and commitment to many communities worldwide.

Thank you both for this interview. It was lovely to sit with a leader who embodies humility and inner strength, quiet optimism and deep humanity. Thank you too to the interviewer, whose name I missed at the top of the show, who hospitably made space for Danby without asserting his own ego on the process. Together you have inspired my morning writing for the day – for which Thank You. I shall now get back to the page.
