This is why I exist

Peter enables people to be extraordinary so that they can do extraordinary things.

Extraordinary in the areas that really matter to them, areas that genuinely inspire them. When similarly inspired people come together in organisations, remarkable things can happen. Peter is committed to helping shift the world of work to be a place where the vast majority of people go home fulfilled, energised and inspired by the work they do.

Interactive Keynotes


In association with Simon Sinek’s organisation, Start With Why, Peter’s keynotes have the ability to touch and inspire large groups of people in very short timescales. His talks can be a traditional keynote of up to 60 minutes, or delivered over several hours during which Peter will get the audience involved in exploring the ideas he shares.

Find out how

Management is about handling complexity; Leadership is about creating simplicity – and it starts with being clear on Why, as an organisation, we do what we do. Until this can be put into words, it’s very difficult to put it into action and nearly impossible to scale.

Building on Simon Sinek’s concept of Why and The Golden Circle, Peter’s keynotes explain what it means to start with Why and answers the question of what to do next. Designed for any organisation, whatever its size or stage of growth, Peter’s talks work as well in small company meetings as they do at large corporate or public events of several thousand people.

Peter’s talks can inspire & create new thinking through the following topics:

  • The Golden Circle
  • Harness the Power of Why (Five Key Principles)
  • Truly Human Leadership

Where i'll be next

  • For two days in Medellin, Colombia, World of Business Ideas will explore Leadership and WHY – our higher purpose, cause or belief.

    Leadership is about creating simplicity and it starts with clarity of WHY, as an organisation, we do what we do.

    Great leaders give people something to believe in, not just to buy. 

    When our WHY acts as a filter for everything we say and do it builds trust and loyalty. In organisations it unlocks innovation, drive and energy to bring a vision to life.

    The best thing is, starting with WHY is simply about reconnecting to what it means to be human. It’s authentic. It’s about intentionally working with how we are biologically wired. And it’s available to us all.

Get Awkward


We naturally tend to define people by What they do and also limit ourselves to thinking in terms of formal organisations or companies. Get Awkward is different. Get Awkward consists of a group of wonderfully creative micro-businesses who have naturally found their fit with each other. On the face of it, all they do is share the same office space. What they’ve discovered is that they also share the same Why.
