The best training is landing in a city and seeing how you can prep for meetings for a business partner thats rolling in on a train in 2 hrs. :)
Peter was the Green Party candidate for Beaches East York during the 2004 Federal Election in Canada. I helped Peter by taking some of the menial tasks like putting up signs away from him, so that he could concentrate on what is most important for a candidate - and what he is best at - getting out in front of people and communicating with people.
Being a political candidate is a daunting task - something I have never felt up to. Peter was fearless in this and did very well, significantly improving Green Party vote over the previous federal candidate, impressing those he met, and keeping everyone involved in the campaign motivated and positive.
I have watched Peter's continued involvement with the Green Party and have been very impressed by his ability to connect with everyone there, and to connect other people together.
Peter offers a rare combination of 'outside the box' thinking, 'get it done' ethic and is very personable. His range of skills, experience and adaptability make him an ideal candidate for a variety of business undertakings, especially those special projects that are difficult to assign to staff.
I had the opportunity of working with Peter at the Essential Group. He joined us at a critical time when we were undergoing the rebuilding of teams in our Shanghai office. It was at this point when he stepped up to the plate, boosted the client database through tireless networking and excellent rapport with prospects. It was also through Peter's initiative did we kick start our expansion of clients in second tier cities around Shanghai. Having worked in his team, we were allowed room for creativity and self improvement. Peter was a good people manager concerned more with the bigger picture rather than the details. Peter also held strong values and the customers interest at heart in a ruthless sales environment.
I had the opportunity to meet Peter in Toronto and be hired by his company, One World Coffee, to produce their message on hold project. Peter was a terrific client to work for: clear in his direction of his smartly written copy and completely professional in his interaction with me. For me it was a sincerely great client-vendor working relationship.
Peter was a very customer driven sales associate while working for me. The customer always came first and Peter developed tremendous rapport with his clients. Peter also worked very well with his colleagues and consistently met or exceeded sales targets.
Many writers are solitary workers. Though they like to go out and talk with people to get their stories, they don't necessarily tend to enjoy working with other writers to tell the story.
Peter and I both admitted that we were solitary writers when we began discussing the possibility of writing an article collaboratively. As the idea for our article began to unfold, the process of doing research and writing together occurred organically. I attribute the ease of writing the piece largely to Peter's personality. Peter is extremely easy to work with, has a well-developed sense of humor, is intelligent, and is reliable. In addition, he brings a range of different professional experiences and personal interests to his work, so his insight and contributions are likely to improve any project. I recommend him without reservation for writing, editing, and consultancy projects.

Watching Peter interact with people as the Knowledge Base through social media was a delight. He was always ready to help others and made the Knowledge Base twitter account a go to source for information on how to get the best out of Microsoft technologies.
When he transferred the Knowledge Base account to my Consumer Camp initiative I was both humbled and excited. I knew that if I was to take over as Consumer Camp that I had to live up to the high quality standards that he provided for his followers. I can only hope I'm anywhere near that level.
With Peter, you get a wonderful individual, who's attention to detail, care for the community, and strategic knowledge of the social landscape make for a valuable asset to any team that he's part of.
Peter rocked the stage at TEDxMongKok and provided many mind-blowing examples of how crowd sourcing is drastically changing the way the world works!
Peter is a terrific expert in the social media world. I hired Peter more than once to help me develop the "Global Chef" Brand offline and online.
Peter's expertise allowed us to do different magazine interviews, cooking demonstrations in Shanghai and in Beijing as well as a few book signing events.
Peter helped me to get more visibility by coordinating my website content plus exposure on a multitude of engaging social media platforms.
My book sales are beginning to head in the right direction with both the printed version as well as the E book version. Peter, is very well known in his fields on both side of the ocean.
I trully respect Peter for his deep knowledge and as a trustworthy and dedicated person
thank you Peter for a job well done
Peter brought value to our leadership team by being able to create mutually beneficial opportunities for our company. As a direct result of his efforts, the company made decisons as to ad campaigns and venture capital solicitation. He worked tirelessly on pushing the vision and the brand name as a leading resource in the I.T skills assessment industry.
I met Peter online first. Little by little I started following his social media insights and his blog posts to realize then we were working for the same Company! Peter demonstrated high skills on social media environment, being able to drive enthusiasm, product announcements, web 2.0 tips and tricks and, in the end, driving market share. His work on Microsoft KB was really astonishing, driving the success of the Microsoft Knowledge Base worldwide with a lot of creativity, passion and total devotion. I had the pleasure to meet Peter face-to-face and I have to say his commitment, his enthusiasm, his action oriented mind really outnumbered my expectations. A high skilled professional IT guy I would highly recommend to work with
