About David

With a total of 35 years’ experience as a facilitator, coach and physical education teacher, David Contarini transitioned from NSW State Government to Queensland to head a number of major public events. 

David's passions include both physical and psychological health and fitness, and amongst other qualifications, David holds a Diploma of Counselling with registration through the  Australian Counselling Association.

Before returning to his passion for education and community, David produced some of Brisbane’s signature events, New Year’s Eve and River Fire and founded Brisbane’s premiere food event, “Regional Flavours”.

Working for one of Queensland most iconic brands, RACQ, he designed and delivered in-classroom, school-based road safety education programs to over 60,000 students per year throughout the State. 

David’s innovative and evocative program “Docudrama” brought students face-to-face with the tragedy of road trauma while empowering them to manage potential life-altering situations.

Peak Services welcomed David Contarini as an experienced and focussed senior trainer, specialising in local government professional development programs, in early 2022.
