“Peter is an endless source of fascinating facts, relevant business stories and deep insights to human behaviour. And then he asks the question at the nub of the issue – the one that makes you think – the tough one. The one that makes all the difference. And with the answer everything else becomes clear. That’s Peter. By working with Peter I’ve learnt so much about me, how I can become a better leader and how to drive a business forward. So if you have the chance to work with him – grab the opportunity.”

“When I started as Director General of the RSPCA I knew I needed help and advice. I was also a first for the RSPCA – the first woman leader in an essentially macho dominated environment – with a large workforce and a strong tradition of command and control military style leadership. I also knew that being at the top can be lonely and exposed and it is difficult to trust others enough to let them know your weaknesses and concerns. But I needed and wanted more than a listening ear, I wanted options and strategies. I feel very fortunate to have had Peter as a coach over the past five years… and throughout the time when I was considering whether to change jobs, when to change and what direction to take Peter was a great source of counsel and advice. The most valuable contribution that Peter has made to me revolves around the issue of inner confidence. Even the most externally robust individuals, and most people would count me as one of those, can find ourselves in challenging and uncomfortable situations that can lead to self doubt, particularly when you are being stretched hard or under attack, as I have been. Peter’s wide business experience, blended with a tremendous insight into the psychology of human behaviour, proved to be a remarkably effective combination. Peter has become a confidante who I can trust to give an open and honest assessment of my strengths and weaknesses. Peter acts as a dynamic sounding board, not merely reflecting thoughts and ideas but challenging them and subtly moulding them in such a way that woolly uncertainty is transformed into crisp focus, backed by the confidence that the way forward is both achievable and enhancing for both the individual and the organisation.© 2009 Whenever I meet Peter I know that at the end of a couple of hours I will have a clear way forward on at least one significant issue, usually several, and that I will approach the challenge with energy and determination because of the ‘lift’ that the interaction has given me. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone who knows that they could do better if they felt more in control of themselves and the environment in which they operate.”
“Peter is my secret weapon for business success.”
“Using some remarkably powerful psychological techniques Peter addressed several unaddressed fears, concerns and misapprehensions from earlier in my life and found ways of bringing resolution to key personal issues. This in turn addressed behavioural problems which saved my marriage and subsequently saved my business too.”
