Just over 10 years ago, Peter took a complementary, parallel track to his project management career thread: he studied and obtained qualifications as a Coach with a speciality in the domain of Applied Cultural Intelligence. Peter has coached, trained and mentored both in the organisations he has been working for and independently which has taken him to many countries over the years

These days, Peter concentrate his energy on the company he created in 2010 – Island Hoppers (continents are just big islands, “no man is an island”, island-hopping should be fun!). Peter particularly appreciates assisting with opportunities to leverage cultural and technological intelligence in order to address some of the issues facing the world today.

Peter is enjoying his life with family and friends. Above and beyond that, Peter enjoys walking in the mountains, flying (he has a Private Pilot’s Licence from France and a float plane qualification from Canada), scuba diving or snorkelling when he is near the sea and classic car and motorcycle tinkering.
