Pete has a depth of hands-on experience working shoulder to shoulder with product development teams, taking innovative concepts through from idea to scale.

As a thought leader, Pete frequently presents at Australia’s leading conferences such as Agile Australia and LAST (Lean, Agile and Systems Thinking) on topics as diverse as product management, innovation, social entrepreneurship and chaos engineering (a cutting edge technique for building resilience into IT and people systems).
