Tel: +61 3 9671 7629
Peter is a recognised thought leader and practitioner in innovation with a particular focus on digital innovation.
Although his professional training was as a Chartered Accountant, Peter started working with internet technologies in 1993 while in the UK and on his return to Australia in 1996 founded an eBusiness Consulting group within Deloitte Australia. Peter was also the CEO of the Eclipse Group, a Deloitte subsidiary that was one of Australia’s largest web and mobile development firms, from 2003 to 2008 and then founded Deloitte Digital, a business pioneering the delivery of professional services online.
Peter has been the Chairman of Deloitte’s Innovation Council since 2004 and been involved in numerous innovation projects for Deloitte and clients over the course of his career.
Peter is a sought after speaker and media commentator both locally and internationally and has worked with boards and senior executives of many companies helping them understand and adapt to the rapidly changing digital environment.
Peter is the obvious person to lead the newly formed Australian chapter of the Centre for the Edge, a Silicon Valley Applied Research Centre chaired by two technology luminaries John Hagel III and John Seely Brown. The Centre’s mission is to identify and explore emerging opportunities related to big shifts that aren’t yet on the senior management agenda, but ought to be. While it is focused on long-term trends and opportunities, it is equally focused on implications for near-term action, the day-to-day environment of executives.
Peter is an Adjunct Professor at RMIT and a board member of Circus Oz.
