economy environment.

Peter subscribes to Warren Buffetts investment philosophies, Buffett once said, “The key to investing is not assessing how much an industry is going to affect society, or how much it will grow, but rather determining the competitive advantage of any given company and, above all, the
durability of that advantage. The products or services that have wide, sustainable moats around them are the ones that deliver rewards to investors.

Peter also advises and assists in the generation of business value for organisations of all sizes through transformation consultancy, capital raisings, mergers, alliances and partnerships, particularly combined with strategic consultancy with each client to assist each client in determining and achieving their business objectives in the digital economy environment.

Peters approach to strategic consultancy includes the utilization of model driven business transformation, utilizing advanced Actionable Enterprise Architecture tools to facilitate and support ongoing customer driven business growth, from identification of market influences, through assessment of their impact on the organisation, to formulation of business
policies, decisions on strategies, tactics, goals and objectives, as well as aligning and optimizing operational execution through effective use of information and communications technologies and solutions.

Peter operates out of a Gold Coast, South East Queensland, Australia base.
