About Pip Cornall

Trained in Physical Education and specialising in Outdoor Education, after leaving teaching in the late 70s, Pip Cornall established the Ulladulla Windsurfing School, built, then ran a ski lodge in the NSW Alps, where he taught skiing and in spring, white-water canoeing and kayaking.

Pip later started an outdoor adventure company called Wilderness Awareness, which focused on building a connection with nature a forerunner to eco-adventures. (Adventures of the Heart in Nature.)

In the 1990s, after training as a mediator, Pip worked with young men in the juvenile justice systems of Australia and America. He taught peer mediation for teens in Oregon schools, worked in an Oregon Juvenile Correction Centre and was a volunteer mediator in Oregon courts for community disputes.

In 2002, while working for the Australian Sports Commission, he conducted a week long course culminating in a ‘clear the air’ conflict resolution and mediation with a high ranking Australian Olympic team – many of whom are household names.

Pip has written two booklets, Sustainable Masculinity and Kicking a Goal for Masculinity which are designed as discussion templates to help adults talk about the concept of healthy and unhealthy forms of masculinity with boys, teens and young men. Building respect for women is a central theme. His books and eBooks are offered free to organisations and individuals. 

Pip has worked with Grace since 2010. He initiated programs such as Prostate Mates 

Pip and Grace Gawler were married in 2016.
