Peter was a fantastic, engaging speaker at our Annual Conference in Madrid. He is well-informed, professional and knows how to keep an audience both interested and entertained. Peter has a very positive, easy-going personality and was happy to chat with our delegates before and after his presentation. He was even happy to put up some stands for us... a great person to have around. Highly recommended!

Leadership Algorithms


"The algorithms will take care of everything” Yuval Noah Harari

  • Identify and install effective algorithms (building great daily habits)

  • Run these algorithms consistently over time (fixing habits so they last)

  • Uninstall algorithms that hinder performance (elimination of bad habits)


The Stoic Leader


Stoicism, a philosophy from over 2000 years ago, is the ideal leadership toolkit, allowing leaders to:

  • Be unwavering, providing certainty in uncertain times.

  • Lead from the front, inspiring a team when they need it most.

  • Do the right thing - Leadership as an action, not a title.

  • Take responsibility, engaging their teams and reducing workplace stress.
