Beyond the corporate world, Pete has worked closely with some of the world’s brightest minds including 20 times best-selling author Seth Godin and multiple Booker Prize winner, and author of The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood.

He has clients who have built multi-million dollar companies and have raised nearly that much for charities. Others have performed on Broadway, been nominated for Australian of the Year, and produced Emmy and Cannes award-winning TV shows.

Pete is a former Head Coach of the altMBA, TEDx speaker, writer, and co-host of The Long and The Short Of It, a weekly podcast that explores leadership, creativity and workplace culture.
