Peter Buttrum

Whilst being socially awkward and having no great desire to interact with other people, Peter has found surprising success in several key leadership positions in the health sector. He is currently the Executive Director (ED) of Allied Health Professions at Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, and has temporarily covered the ED Critical Care and Clinical Support Services role and ED Internal Medicine role in recent times. Peter has previously been Director of Physiotherapy at RBWH and Professional Lead for Physiotherapy across Metro North.  He also currently sits on several university and professional advisory groups. He has either developed some successful adapted leadership strategies, or the general acceptance of leadership mediocrity hasn’t exposed him yet. He hopes the former.
