Pete challenges conventional thinking and is willing to speak up. His ability to strategise as well as deliver is what sets him apart from the many self proclaimed social experts today. I endorse Pete and would welcome an opportunity to work with again someday.

Pete gets digital and has a cracking knowledge of media, social and comms platforms. His ability to focus on consumer lead experiences through the lens of Paid/Owned/Earned means he has an uncanny knack of pulling a vision together in short order. Well connected in the industry, passionate about his craft and with get-up-and-go, wherever he works I'd expect him to make an immediate impact.

One of Pete's great strengths is his ability to come up with highly imaginative ideas for client's campaigns. Highly organised and driven individual with a fantastic understanding of social media engagement strategies in terms of what motivates users and how to get them to interact with campaigns.
