Peter Holmes à Court - Businessman, Author, Environmentalist and Rugby team owner
In Riding with Giants, Peter Holmes à Court demonstrated the honesty and vulnerability to be human, fallible and curious as he searched for his path. His father Robert is credited with being Australia’s first billionaire. His mother Janet was more successful than his father. As their oldest child, Peter was involved in investment banking, music and comedy promotion, cattle, trains, finance, Sydney business promotion, writing and he co-owned the South Sydney Rabbitohs rugby team with Russell Crowe among other ventures. His memoir takes it all in and asks the existential question of what it means to be alive as a father, a businessman, a manufacturer, a creator of beauty and meaning, a member of society and a cyclist, who tries something almost entirely new and most assuredly out of his comfort zone.
