The core driver behind the work that Peter does is enabling individuals and teams to be the best that they can be.  Within this, there is a particular buzz when clients break through previous limits and see ways of realising new possibilities in their lives.  In all of his work, Peter applies his ability to listen closely and then to ask the key questions that get to the heart of the challenges facing the client.  His work draws on cutting edge knowledge of brain science and emotional intelligence as well as the inspiration and learning to be had from storytelling.  For both adults and children, working with traditional and personal stories provides a variety of ways of helping people to learn key lessons, tap into the best of themselves and develop their self-confidence.  Working in this way engages us both mentally and emotionally and for adults, it is an enjoyable way of re-evoking our childhood spirit of learning and openness.  In addition to using storytelling with organisations and on personal development programmes, Peter also hosts monthly storytelling gatherings in his home in Dublin.

Away from work, Peter’s main hobby is Irish traditional music.  In addition to playing in informal pub sessions and some composing work, he plays in a band doing gigs of children’s songs with Irish traditional music arrangements.  The band has played previously at Electric Picnic and for the last 4 years has done shows at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann.
