Peter’s deep marketing expertise has been built over two decades of working with demanding clients in the high-tech sector, primarily in a business-to-business context. He is a proven B2B marketing consultant with a focus on sales results.
He will start any engagement by gaining a clear and robust handle on the numbers. He’s at his best in a business where data and insight form a natural part of the decision-making.

His experience in mapping marketing to a nurtured sales process means that a salesperson is always equipped to have intelligent conversations, and reasons to stay in touch with clients and prospects.

From creating compelling content to structuring seminar programmes, supporting technical tender processes, to equipping people to hit the phones – Peter knows his stuff.
