Peter Turner has worked in the area of Education throughout his career and during this time has carried out a number of significant roles. He was the Director of Schools for the Catholic Diocese of Wollongong for thirteen years and the Regional Director of Education for the Southern Region of the Archdiocese of Sydney for five years. Apart from his commitment to education he also has a strong heart and passion for social justice.
Peter is a wonderfully inspiring speaker and has been invited to address many different groups. During one forum with beginning teachers he raised the significant question - For what do you wish to be known? It is a question that prompts us all to consider both our purpose and the principles which underpin this.
In this Episode I explore this same question with Peter, eager to hear more about what motivates and guides him in his decisions and actions. Peter acknowledges the importance of words, yet highlights that these must be met with actions. He generously shares stories and experiences from his professional and personal life and underlying these experiences is a deep and profound sense of God’s presence and support.
