More Info

Peter’s devoted focus today as a professional speaker is his audience. He instinctively follows what he learnt in hotels, and attentively serves a tailored and personalised experience that is inclusive, engaging and fun - to create a feeling and memory that lives on way past his events.

He treats every single moment on stage as a performance and is consistently focussed, to achieve positive emotional connection and reach deep into people’s hearts. Some have said Peter's style is a blend of Willy Wonka and Heston Blumenthal. He can certainly agree that these ‘characters’ fuel his imagination.

Peter's message is a distillation of the real and unique insights learned and implemented over three decades. His lessons come with no theory, but reflections and inspiration gained from working with some of the best leaders and practitioners of humility in the world. Peter reveals through uncomplicated, refreshing and economical recipes, the benefits of transforming the heart of any organisation into one of greater workplace well-being, morale, motivation, imagination and appreciation.

Peter removes the distraction of thinking that engaging workplaces and dazzling customer experiences require huge budgets, complicated systems, processes and the latest gadgetry that promise a new way of excellence. His philosophy is simple - to inspire joyful work environments where everybody is valued, appreciated, and recognised - and has fun. By placing Wonder at the heart of a workplace, employee turnover will be lower, customers will be happier, revenue increases, and profitability improves.

Additionally, Peter is proud to offer an incredibly unique speaking experience, in collaboration with his mentor and business partner Doug Lipp, former Head of Training for Disney University and author of Disney U. Peter and Doug regularly share the stage together and custom blend a deeply engaging message of Disney Magic and Wonder.
