Mediation Style

Peter has an energy and style that is focussed on ensuring parties are listened to and ultimately work towards reaching an agreement. He understands the landscape, pitfalls and consequences of parties proceeding to expensive, time consuming and impersonal litigation. He has a natural intuitive ability to understand the key issues, the position of each party and why they are positioned where they are. He possesses an excellent commercial sense of what is required to reach a settlement. He will carefully challenge parties to ensure their ‘positions’ are reality checked and enables honest risk assessments as opposed to over-confident positioning. He encourages both parties not to agree, but to look at the position from the other side.

Professional Background

Peter has a successful commercial business background spanning over 30 years working at Commercial Director, General Manager and MD level at both start up and established level. Managing revenues up to $250m. He has an excellent record in building board level, executive level, and operational level relationships and has managed small to large teams. He understands the strategic and day to day operational challenges that businesses need to manage.
