Peter grew up on a farm 180 miles north of Melbourne in Australia. It was a great start in life but farming wasn't for him.
After his first few years of working (as a commercial computer programmer), he took a year out to travel the world. Around this time he realised he was far more enthusiastic about people development than software development.
After full-time university, he qualified as an organisational psychologist and joined a leading HR consultancy. He gained experience in executive recruitment, psychometric profiling, consultancy, training, and outplacement.
Fast promotion into management helped Peter painfully discover how much there was to learn about leadership! At the same time, he also discovered his talent as a coach/mentor to other leaders: insightful, supportive, and willing to challenge.
He empathises with every single leader who, having stepped up, quietly struggles and sometimes feels like a fraud waiting to be found out.
Peter's approach is simple:
Provide people with powerful insights and useful tools for working with human psychology and culture. That way, they can confidently deliver results while fully enjoying their work and life
Shared values. Broad experience. Complementary Skills.
