I find Peter very intelligent and engaging with a canny knack of getting to the bottom of what makes a business tick in a most friendly and productive manner. My work with Peter was efficient, effective and most productive; his experience and insights from outside the business looking into ours made a significant contribution to the next steps taken and the success of those.

Cameron Crowley, Business Development, Maverick Biosciences

I had the pleasure of working with Peter for several years on an innovative project to kickstart the Perth startup ecosystem. He has terrific attention for detail, an enquiring mind, and a great capacity to grasp the big picture. An absolutely genuine gent by nature. If you want to sit down with someone who makes you think – and be glad that you did – have a coffee with Peter. You’ll be glad you did.

Justin Davies, Managing Director, Emergination

I found Peter easy to work with, useful and constructive. He caused us to reflect on and to review our existing practices, helped us to open our minds to possibilities & gave us confidence to successfully follow through on a government grant. His advice empowered us to better digital control of our systems in our business, enhanced our record keeping. The whole engagement stepped us more into a modern digital world.
