Victor Perton is the Founder and Chief Optimism Officer at the Centre for Optimism, an offshoot of the Australian Leadership Project. Comprised of over 3500 leaders in 65 countries, the Centre for Optimism aims to help leaders combat negativity by asking the question “what makes you Optimistic?”. A respected author, speaker, moderator, barrister and researcher, Victor uses his extensive experience to inspire leaders around the world to lead with joy, optimism and self-mastery.

Victor joins us on our latest podcast episode to discuss his take on optimism, including:

• Why it’s important to find your own personal source of optimism, rather than seeking an external model to follow
• How optimism fits in to the seven key mindsets of design thinking and why optimism is key for innovation
• The difference between unrealistic optimism and intelligent optimism
• Simple techniques you can use as a leader to boost your team’s optimism as well as your own
• The benefits of positive governance and the importance of bringing positivity into the boardroom

Known for his leadership strategy, public policy and corporate governance, Victor spent 18 years in the Victorian Parliament before becoming Commissioner to the Americas on Foreign Direct Investment and Export Promotion and serving as Senior Advisor to the Australian G20 Presidency. He now spends his time facilitating roundtables, conferences, and panels to inspire leaders to be more optimistic, while furthering his research into the complexities of leadership in Australia.
