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
  • Leading in the Infinite Game

"I’m proud to be a part of these tribes"

When you enable people to be extraordinary, it turns out that they enable you to be extraordinary too.

Here are some of the people who help me to help others. We’re family. Tribes who believe in starting with WHY.


Start with Why

Peter is proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with Simon Sinek. A leading Start With Why Igniter & Implementer, Peter is committed to spreading the message of The Golden Circle and building the Start With Why Movement. Along with an increasing number of others, he is working towards the time where the vast majority of people are inspired and fulfilled by the work they do. Together we can turn this from possibility into reality. In September 2017, Peter published his first book, ‘Find Your Why: A Practical Guide for Discovering Purpose for You and Your Team’. Co-authored with Simon Sinek & David Mead, this step-by-step guide brings together over 20 years’ experience of helping individuals and organisations discover their Why. The Start With Why Movement continues to grow around the world and Peter is honoured and inspired to be a part of it. Discover


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. Discover Save Save Save Save Save Save


WhyNot Partnering

Starting with Why has inspired others to bring their brilliance into the world. WhyNot Partnering is a small group of highly experienced and committed individuals who chose to leave their corporate world to better serve others. They work with clients to create Why-Based Organisations where trust, care, safety and high engagement are the norm – and high performance is the outcome. Discover Save Save Save Save Save Save
