Dr Peter Dingle (or Dr Dingle) has made public speaking an art. His presentations are enthusiastic and inspirational, entwined with memorable stories and spiced with a slice of magic. He interacts and motivates. He takes complex scientific information and converts it so that it is dynamic, easy to understand and informative.
He is also a group hypnotherapist and motivational coach to some of Australia’s elite business people. In his spare time he practices what he preaches, rides a bicycle to work, loves his family, the beach and the gym, juggles, meditates, plays with a unicycle and cooks a mean minestra (but not all at the same time!)
Dr Dingle has spent the past twenty five years as a researcher, educator and communicator. He has a Bachelor of Education in Science, a Bachelor of Environmental Science with first class honours and a PhD (1994). He has more than 100 scientifically reviewed papers, 10 books including "A supplement a day keeps the doctor away", "The great cholesterol deception", "Take control" and "Realise your potential". He conducts ongoing research into diet and nutrition, lifestyle and environmental impacts on health, well being and productivity. Dr D is one of the rare speakers who conducts and presents his own professional research. He is internationally recognised and often quoted by other speakers.
