Second keynote speaker announced for Pharmacy Connect

June 2021

Peter Thurin to speak at Pharmacy Connect

With registrations now open for Pharmacy Connect 2021, Mentor and Coach Peter Thurin has been announced as the event’s second keynote speaker.

Peter is joined by two-time World Champion, three-time Olympian and Olympic gold medallist for rowing, Kim Brennan AM, plus over 30 industry and expert speakers.

Peter brings a diverse perspective to Pharmacy Connect. After spending more than two decades running businesses, including pharmacies, Peter decided to pursue his dream of attaining a black belt in martial arts at age 36. Peter exceeded his goal by earning a 3rd “Dan” black belt in Taekwondo and realised, through his hard work, that just about everything in life could be boiled down to a choice between ‘easy to do’ and ‘easy not to do’.

When asked about common keys to success, Peter has said, “Big-picture goals can be so daunting that often people don’t have the courage to get into the game. I say, ‘It’s OK to feel awkward, it’s OK to feel uncomfortable’, but don’t allow those feelings to prevent you from making a start. Good intentions will get you nowhere. You have to do something. Taking that first step is always ‘easy to do’, but it’s also ‘easy not to do’.”

“Whatever your challenge or goal is, if you want to change your life or your business for the better, you have to ‘CHOOSE TO DO’ something,” he said. “I want to help you make that choice. I’m here to help you focus on what you CAN DO rather than what you can’t. So, if you’re ready to make a start on achieving something meaningful in your life or business, come and see me and let’s do it together. After all, ‘it’s easy to do.'”

Peter’s aim in delivering a keynote address at Pharmacy Connect is to help attendees find the inspiration, enthusiasm, and determination they need to achieve their goals.
