Peter Davison is an international motivational speaker and training leader who revitalizes people who help people. His tales and tools enrich relationships, deepen employee engagement and promote productive attitudes to maximize the culture of human potential.
Peter has celebrated the joy of speaking and the business of making a difference since 1985. His global audiences attend professional association conferences or serve as personnel and management through corporate, public and not for profit sector organizations.
Peter engages life with gusto, from his proud roots in small town Nova Scotia and trekking mountains on 3 continents to working with street gangs in Los Angeles and emerging leaders in Northern Ireland. Peter’s uplifting speeches and peak performance seminars celebrate hard-working unsung heroes and renew and inspire big-hearted professionals to make a difference in and for the world. His passion for empowering others began with a decade as an inner-city school teacher. Notable in his career as a training leader was five years with the Nova Scotia Government’s Family Violence Prevention Initiative. Peter’s expertise in violence prevention evolved into dedicating his life work to the success formula: Valuing Self, Others and Service = Healthy Emotional Connections = Fulfilling Employee Engagement = Service Excellence = Organizational and Community Prosperity.
He is co-author of the industry-acclaimed best-selling Healthy Relationships Curriculum, a violence prevention program for youth and the program director of Generation XXL, a Gemini Award nominated film exploring teenage obesity. In 1995, Peter was honoured with a Global Citizen Award from the Nova Scotia Chapter of the United Nations Association in Canada for his work in promoting peace. His expertise in healthy relationships has been featured in numerous television, radio, and print media interviews.
Peter has been quoted in Oprah Magazine and is proud to be Hannah's Dad. Peter's energy comes from chocolate and his passion for helping people love who they are, who they’re with, and what they do with their talents in order to leave a job well-done with more joy to take home to their healthy family.
Peter has achieved and maintains the distinction of professional member status with the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers (CAPS) and the International Federation for Professional Speakers. He gives back to the profession he loves by serving for 6 years on the Board of Directors of the CAPS Halifax Chapter.
Peter loves the challenge of teaching in diverse environments – from the high-tech platform in front of hundreds, to anger management with Los Angeles street gang members and life-purpose exploration in the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. His keynote speeches and professional development programs extend far beyond increasing engagement, productivity and performance – they invite management and staff to unite, in a joint venture, to become part of a growing movement throughout the world to transform our corporations, communities, families, and individual lives into more balanced, respectful, and conscious environments.
