What people say about Peter…
“The Danish Church in Australia engaged Peter to help us through the process of creating our new Vision. Peter quickly made us realise that creating a vision is not something you do overnight, it is a process. He helped the committee understand the requirements for the process, how to clarify the definition and how to tie it in with our strategy. Through the process, he kept us focused and on track towards the goal.
Peter facilitated the final steps at a major workshop involving our employees, members of the congregation, and our sponsors who all had a chance to be involved and contribute. This created clarity and ownership of the final version of our Vision. Peter demonstrated an ability to quickly gain understanding of our organisation, and his excellent facilitation skills and ability to translate our organisational requirements and strategies into simple terms, has given us clarity and hands on tools to move closer to our goals. Importantly, Peter made the process both educational and enjoyable for all participants.”
Finn Jorgensen, Chairman of committee, Danish Church in Australia
