He was My Brother

The story of Rob Dickson and me

“A compelling story I urge you to read”
Gillon McLachlan, AFL CEO

One phone call, one sudden unexpected tragic event in a distant land. That’s all it took to shatter one man’s world and his close-knit family into a thousand pieces.

The death of Australian football identity, reality TV star and documentary maker Rob Dickson stunned his hundreds of associates and friends across Melbourne’s corporate, sporting and social world.

But none felt it more than his hero-worshipping younger brother, Peter. The bond between them was unbreakable. From an early age they were far more than brothers. They were mates, buddies, best pals and eventually business partners.

Rob’s death hit Peter harder than he or anyone could have imagined. The aftershock has lasted for years, taking its toll not only on Peter’s mental and physical health but also his family and business relationships.

In this uplifting memoir of survival and recovery he tells with brutal honesty of his fight back from intense despair, with Rob as his ever-present inspiration and guide.

He delves back into the pair’s childhood under the strict but loving eye of their Bible-quoting mother, traces Rob’s larrikin rise into the world of Australian Rules and details his ongoing struggles to rival his brother’s skill behind the camera.

An immensely readable story of highs and lows told with the sharp eye of one who has beaten the odds to reach the peak of his profession as an award-winning documentary filmmaker.

“They were the greatest storytellers I’ve ever known, mixing larrikin humor with existential wisdom that left their audiences laughing & crying, spellbound & uplifted. Their love for storytelling and helping others was outshone only by their love for each other”
— Ben Crowe Leadership Mentor & Mindset Coach.

I’ll Give it One Week

Did you know that your body is always talking to you, and you have the innate ability to find freedom from pain and suffering?

The messages are always there, we just don’t often pay attention to what they’re saying. When was the last time you sat silently and listened to what your body was really trying to tell you, before grasping for a pain killer or quick fix solution.

In her younger years Emma struggled with severe mental illness and was being treated for depression, anxiety, PTSD, panic attacks and suicidal ideation. Struggles so severe that Emma even attempted to end her own life. Then Emma’s life took an even more dramatic turn when she was diagnosed with a degenerative spinal condition which in addition to leaving her mostly bedridden with limited mobility, led to her suffering from chronic pain for much of her 20s.

I’ll Give it One Week! is a intimate account of Emma’s personal journey and also a step by step program that you can follow to kick-start a new journey too. This book and program is suitable and recommended for anyone wanting to make positive changes, go inward and work on themselves, to discover not only their true self but the limitless potential to self-heal.
