Peg Thatcher | Jan L. Solomon | Charles Shewring

Peg Thatcher – CEO

Peg Thatcher is the CEO of Swiss Consulting Group. She has been a public speaker, leadership coach and workshop facilitator for over 25 years on a variety of subjects, but always with a common theme: that something better is possible, whether it is your health or your wealth, your communication skills or your leadership. Peg mobilizes people for committed action; she has dedicated her life to people winning and realizing the future they want.

Peg was born in a tiny country hospital in Western Australia and grew up in Sydney. She was raised in the melting-pot of a large private hotel where she discovered that everyone has a story and a dream of a bright future.

In the 1990s, Peg worked as an international fundraiser who produced millions of dollars in the muddy oil fields of Northern Canada and in the rarified atmosphere that surrounds Princes in Malaysia. As a fundraising coach, she helped non-profit leaders in 37 countries (Europe, East and South Asia, Africa, North America, and Oceania) produce breakthrough funding for the future of humanity. Her intercultural work made her a master of facilitating virtual and diverse teams.

Helen Keller used to say that life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. Whether trekking in the Himalayas, breaking through the obstacles to women’s leadership in the board rooms of international organizations, or working with the small businesses that are the back-bone of our world, Peg has always striven to unleash the spirit of people.

An articulate spokesperson who gave voice to millions of unsung leaders, Peg’s newspaper column was syndicated throughout Australia, Fiji and Tonga; and her talk-radio program won a broadcasting award.

As people find their vision, they need a voice and a coach who stands outside the day-to-day issues and can see clearly what’s missing for growth and accomplishment. Doing it alone is just too difficult. As a coach, Peg helps people taking strategic and effective action to meet the future.

A long-term advocate for human development, in 1978 she became an activist with The Hunger Project, a global non-profit organization on the roster of the United Nations that is committed to the sustainable end of world hunger.
