I work for one of the most innovative companies in the world and belong to a cutting-edge legal department.  When Peter approached me about his Everything But the Law Program, I was sceptical---I thought what could he really teach that my team already didn’t know.  I was wrong. Peter’s workshop motivated us to look at our in-house practice from a completely different perspective.  We came out of there with a radically different mindset---we went from a very legal department centric approach to one where we can truly partner with the business and have more of an  impact. How?  Peter will challenge your current thinking and way of working. He will give you concepts, specific guidance and practical tools to evaluate what is important and to decide what work you should be doing and how to do it. Don’t judge his program by his marketing materials--they don't accurately convey how much you can gain from his unique insights and inspiring vision. Take a leap of faith and take your team to the next level. You will not be disappointed."  APAC General Counsel for one of the world's most well-known global technology companies

Peter's  dynamic two day workshop has helped me to see the practice of law from a completely new perspective. The program is unique in my experience, covering non-traditional skills and providing an end-to-end framework for in-house legal teams to use to approach innovation and change. It was brilliant to work with Peter who shared his broad and global experience and helped us workshop new approaches to working with our company to achieve its  goals. I came away energised and inspired, with lots of new ideas and a very specific set of action items to implement changes to the way we work". General Counsel for one of Australia's most well-known television broadcasters

It reflects the rare breadth and depth of his experiences and it is obvious that he has been thinking about and doing things differently for a very long time.

Thank you." European GC for a technology company

Having run leadership team off-sites for many years – it can be a challenge to come up with something new and inspiring.  Our legal team has been on a journey of continuous improvement and simplification for many years so we were looking for something to inspire us to go to the next level.  With all the change going on around us in the industry and with technology, we knew we had to change in new ways and we wanted to be proactive not reactive in doing so. We engaged Peter to help us develop a deeper understanding of the trends in and innovation taking place in the legal industry and to help us understand why we should change and how we could go about making a plan to change. Peter helped us to look at things differently and to challenge the way, what and how we work. Peter provided concrete tools and examples of ways we can become more effective, add more value to our business stakeholders and enhance collaboration.  Having a facilitator who has held senior Legal and business roles meant that Peter was able to provide credible and useful insights.

 The leadership team came away feeling revitalised, ready to take on new challenges, and equipped to determine what changes we need to make to the way we work and how to go about it.  Peter showed us the true value of not just being a business partner but also being a business leader and the importance of thinking beyond the law to achieve this. Thank you Peter – I have had great feedback from every member of the leadership team on the benefits they received from the two day session" General Counsel for one of the leading Australian-based global financial institutions

I attended Peter’s public half day “Innovation Workshop for Lawyers” and felt immediately this is something that my senior lawyers team needs. We engaged Peter for a two-days’ workshop subsequently and Peter’s rich in-house experience and his systematical design of the workshop smartly addressed all the key challenges of my team, it is very relevant and we feel he is helping us to get out of the daily operational challenges and head to a strategic empowering plan. Peter’s workshop was not only interactive and energizing, he is culturally sensitive and knows how to engage a group of senior lawyers, e.g. shared with us his own personal experience and challenges. His coaching and facilitating skill is impressive and he made his workshop with a lot of fun and laughs. I am glad our legal team’s innovation journey crossed our way with Peter and he inspired us to reach to the next level of our mindset and way of thinking.
