Bio

Peter's sole purpose is to help people and organizations deal with uncertainty. He is a highly experienced and committed leader with over 30 years of experience in global organizations, including GSN Games/Scopely, Electronic Arts, Fidelity - HR Access & COLT TElecom, and American Express. He has a track record of success in helping organizations navigate uncertainty through shaping the strategic direction, driving organizational change, providing leadership guidance and support as well as developing and influencing critical business relationships that contribute to delivering results aligned to business goals. This has involved building relationships across multiple levels in organizations, designing and facilitating offsite meetings, helping shape thinking, and helping people develop actionable plans.

Peter is also an experienced L&D professional and has designed and run leadership development programs both in-house and as a consultant. Originally from London, UK, he has lived and worked in Paris, Madrid, Geneva, San Francisco, and now Boston. People would describe him as a very calm, experienced leader who demonstrates cultural sensitivity who clearly shows how he values diversity. His last CEO said of his contribution - suffice it to say that he has navigated us through the most difficult times, doing hard things with grace, intelligence, wisdom, and great humor. His great passion is to help people unlock the keys to their success and help them to be the best version of themselves in a way that works for them.
