After decades of standing in the fire with leaders of high-performing organizations, Peter Sheahan has come to believe that an organization will only go commercially where its leaders first go personally. Having grown his own companies by accelerating the growth and transformation for clients that include: Apple; Chick-fil-A; DeBeers; and AT&T -- Peter will provoke you to get bigger, by getting better!

When leaders are true to their purpose, they gravitate towards doing work that matters and solving higher-order problems. The journey to get there requires that they have the courage to tell themselves the truth, take intelligent risks, and assume ownership for driving the alignment necessary to build an organization which behaves in ways worthy of its leadership position.

In being true to his own ambitions and relentless pursuit of growth, Peter has published seven books, built three global companies and delivered more than 2,500 presentations in 40+ countries. Today he and his team at Karrikins Group are focused exclusively on inspiring leaders to do the hard work required to accelerate growth and transformation.

International Expert on Leveraging Business Trends and New Market Opportunities
Fox Interview with Peter Sheahan


Companies and people that matter have successfully become the obvious choice in the hearts and minds of their customers, their employees, and their communities. They elevate themselves by consistently finding ways to solve the most pressing needs their markets face. The result? They create more value year after year and build a sustainable, differentiated organization.

In Matter, Peter Sheahan and Julie Williamson show you how to identify the place where you can create the most value—your edge of disruption—at the intersection of old and new, where your existing profits, reach, and reputation enable you to create the markets of the future. This is the place where the most important problems are solved and where the fewest people can solve them. Your edge of disruption is where your opportunity to matter is found.



The global marketplace is evolving at such a rapid rate that “business as usual” has become a redundant concept. The successful businesses of tomorrow will be built on a platform of courageous leadership, innovation and change. In order to achieve real success, organisations must shift the mindsets of their senior leaders out of the world as it used to exist and into the world as it exists today.

Former Young Entrepreneur of the Year and best-selling author, Peter Sheahan has developed “Flip!” – A proactive future-focussed philosophy that will have you being the force of change in the market and not just responding to the change.

Peter has delivered more than 2,500 presentations to a combined audience of 350,000 people in eight different countries. His impressive array of clients includes Google, News Corp, Coca Cola, L’Oreal and Westpac. In 2006 he was voted the leading keynote speaker in Australia.

Generation Y

Generation Y

The generational divide has led to crippling attrition and low engagement levels for Generation Y employees. Despite employers best efforts young employees continue to hop from job to job, even entire industries in their search for the “perfect job”. Peter Sheahan argues if we are to have any hope retaining and engaging Generation Y in the workplace we need to first understand their needs and motivations.

Peter is a globally recognised expert on Generation Y. His insights into managing generational change influence the strategy of market leading organisations including Google, News Corp, Coca-Cola and Ernst & Young. A Gen Y’er himself, Peter has worked with more than 100,000 members of this generation in workshops, seminars and focus groups. It is this experience, and the collective research he collates from around the world that Peter will draw upon in his presentation today.
