All of Peter's work focuses on the issue of how individuals, and therefore all organizations, assimilate Change.  When consulting, presenting or giving seminars - he has a well deserved reputation for provoking thought, challenging assumptions and exposing the real causes behind otherwise perplexing problems. 
He speaks from experience with passion, conviction and a sense of humor.  He believes his purpose is to entice his audience to think deeper about Change and how it affects us.  His goal is to challenge the myths surrounding Change that construct obstacles in front of successful implementations.  While his focus is on the Management issues surrounding Change, he also speaks on how we look to the Future and the technologies which bring Change into our lives. 

His thoughts on the Management processes surrounding Change brought about by technology are published regularly in monthly columns in Computer World, The Globe and Mail, Municipal World, the ABA Bankers Journal, as well as his own syndicated column on Change Management. 

He's spoken for hundreds of clients ranging from the World Economic Forum to a Town Hall Meeting in Peoria, IL.

Having spoken in more than 34 countries he is recognized worldwide as an exciting and engaging speaker. His audiences have included the World Economic Forum, The World Bank and The Bank for International Settlements. 

His presentations use humor to challenge the myths surrounding our understanding of the Change process and the benefits of technology. His talks are suitable to both staff and upper management. His single minded objective, despite the global nature of some of the issues, is always to provide actionable solutions and new avenues of approach to seemingly intractable problems. 

His presentations and workshops are highly interactive, fun, irreverent to mistaken ideas and most distinctively - provocative.
