Because you want to change your corner of the world.



Accountability, new perspective and purpose as you continue to change your corner of the world.

I was both excited and terrified to start working with Pete because I knew I wouldn’t be able to hide, and that was exactly what I needed.

If you looked at my career from the outside, everything was working - I’d just had some big successes and was starting a new role. But inside, there were a lot of old stories holding me back, and I knew I wouldn’t be able to fully show up and do my best work without dealing with them.

Pete helped me to face those fears head on, and the impact was truly profound. I now see myself and my abilities in an entirely different light, which has enabled me to focus on my unique strengths and to fully commit to the work that matters to me, while authentically declining other options.

Pete’s instincts and care mean that after a conversation with him, you’ll see things from an entirely new perspective. I’m already achieving more, making better choices, and continuing to grow in multiple areas every single day.

Common advice is to start before you’re ready, but when you do so the voice of ego can cause you to not take action or, in my case, play small. Working with Pete has been the key to taking those quantum leaps, and I’m blown away by what is possible. 

He doesn’t give you the answers but instead challenges you to ruthlessly align with your purpose in every single action thus allowing the solutions to arise and unfold. It’s quite magical. 

Pete is innately aware of what I need every step of the way, be it encouragement, candid feedback, or a fresh perspective; his commitment to my “success” has given me the space to flourish. 

Since working with Pete I’ve experienced more joy in my day to day life because I’m showing up to my purpose more fully than ever and you cannot put a price on that.”
— Analisa Leaming - Creator & Performer
I have been working with Peter for the last 9 months. It has been the absolute greatest gift I could give myself. My view of the world and my place in it has truly expanded, and as a result, I’m doing work that is incredibly meaningful and fulfilling.

Many people come to coaching because they are having a hard time or are feeling stuck. My story is different. I met Peter when I was feeling totally inspired by the work I was doing and was ready to scale my vision.

To be clear, Peter is simply a coach. He is not a life coach. He is not a career coach. He is not a creative coach. He is simply and wholly a coach - someone who asks you provocative questions, holds you up and shows you the beautiful possibilities that lie ahead, and then helps you to apply your already developed skills and talents to carve a path forward toward your new vision for the future.

Working with Peter is a lot of work. It is an investment of time and energy and money. And I’m telling you, it is worth it.
— Jen Waldman - Founder & Director


Peter has spoken to leaders, teams and organisations around the world on a range of topics relating to creativity, leadership and innovation.

Some recent topics have included:

  • Cultivating empathy in order to build connection

  • Why imposter syndrome is a good thing

  • Adding intention and purpose to your work

Pete is an engaging speaker, using humour and storytelling to bring his topics to life.

Our staff really connected with the concept of ‘seek to understand’ in order to use empathy and build connection with our clients.

Thanks for a memorable session Pete!
