Over more than 20 years as a successful businessman and former international Australian tennis representative, with a 3rd Dan Blackbelt in Taekwondo, Peter Thurin has learnt the true meaning of focus, discipline and motivation.

Through dedication and commitment, Peter achieved his goal to learn the martial art of Taekwondo and achieve his Blackbelt before his 40th birthday. Often through necessity, training at 4am.

Peter Thurin is the founder of blackbelt in excellence and has been empowering thousands of people from all parts of the world for over a dozen years. He is a dynamic, inspirational and professional speaker, program presenter, facilitator and mentor. He is an author and international business consultant.

He demonstrates a rare ability to combine his insight, skills and experience to understand your business and work with your people to significantly impact on your bottom line.

Peter’s focus on people excellence has been a major factor in the remarkable results achieved by many of the companies he has worked with. You will have great clarity as to the strategy required to deliver on-going, consistent business excellence.

He has been in business for many years owning and operating a number of successful pharmacies, represented Australia twice internationally in tennis, coached Australian Rules Football, and is a third Dan black belt in the martial art of Taekwondo.

WHY TAEKWONDO? The fundamental principles of Taekwondo – focus and discipline underpin the pursuit of excellence in our business and personal lives.

Peter added a huge amount of energy to our Global Management Team Meeting and gave us the spirit to take up any kind of challenge. It was a pleasure to work with him because of his highly professional working style, very positive attitude and great personality.


Your presentation was UNBEATABLE! The research you did to understand the Dan Murphy's business and its people to the passion you displayed during the whole session was amazing. The whole team was buzzing with inspiration after the session and they can't stop talking about it!

Dan Murphys National Conference

We have used Peter in a dual MC & keynote presenter capacity at least 3 times (including overseas events). He has always done an exceptional job for us. In summary he is 1) thoroughly organised – yet flexible as the need dictates. He does his homework & knows the brief 2) personable – always manages to introduce people (on the program) in a manner that speaks as much to who they are as much as what they have done 3) totally professional, yet engaging, energetic, & entertaining 4) skilled at linking presenter content back to the events core messages or theme (without stretching things too far 5) tireless. He spends as much time as is needed (& far more than anyone we have worked with in the MC capacity before or since), throughout the course of the event, to support the organisers 6) a quick study. You would have thought he had worked in our industry for years. As you can see, our experience with Peter has been exceptional. I can highly recommend him.
