Consensus BuilderMost importantly, Peter is a good listener and an effective communicator who knows how to build consensus within your organization. Rather than imposing a solution from outside, he helps you and your team find practical solutions and develop workable plans from within.
Peter brings to the table a unique skill set: As former architect, he helps clients develop the big picture while at the same time keeping in mind the details of plan adoption and execution. He leads clients seamlessly from the big-picture stage of visioning to action plans that guide daily operations.
