Having spoken in 37 countries, he is recognized worldwide as an exciting, provocative 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. His work forces you to think differently about things you thought you were already sure you knew.
In May 2001, Peter was honored by CIPS for his work in Y2K and was at that time appointed as an Associate Director of The Global Future Forum, a past Unisys Corporation initiative. In December 2009, he was awarded our Guardian Award in recognition of his 1993 warning which alerted the world to the potential disaster that might have occurred on January 1, 2000 and his efforts in the following years to create global awareness of the problem, and the possible solutions. His presentations, articles, and more than 2,000 media interviews contributed significantly to the world’s mobilization to avoid that fate.
