Peter’s positive attitude ensured he was extremely productive, helped with whatever was needed and remained proactive, ensuring the project was always progressing. Peter routinely sent updates to stakeholders at all levels. What stook out was that he made things simple to understand even when explaining quite complicated and intricate matters.

During our time working together Peter and his team led two service redesigns and oversaw the implementation of a new criminal justice service and a new Children & Young People’s service. In both instances, Peter was quick to grasp the strategic vision and translate it into a deliverable plan which he efficiently implemented, from inception to completion. What stood out about Peter were his values and his work ethic.
