Peter can teach you how to find niche markets you never knew existed, speak the language of different generations and cultures, and improve your bottom line exponentially. He’s done it before, for leaders of such companies as Apple, IBM, Hilton, and Goldman Sachs.
Peter has published seven books, built three global companies and delivered more than 2,500 presentations in 40+ countries.
After decades of standing in the fire with leaders of high-performing organizations, Peter Sheahan has come to believe that an organization will only go commercially where its leaders first go personally.
Having grown his own companies by accelerating the growth and transformation for clients that include: Apple; Chick-fil-A; DeBeers; and AT&T — Peter will provoke you to get bigger, by getting better! When leaders are true to their purpose, they gravitate towards doing work that matters and solving higher-order problems. The journey to get there requires that they have the courage to tell themselves the truth, take intelligent risks, and assume ownership for driving the alignment necessary to build an organization which behaves in ways worthy of its leadership position.
In being true to his own ambitions and relentless pursuit of growth, Peter has published seven books, built three global companies and delivered more than 2,500 presentations in 40+ countries. Today he is focused exclusively on inspiring leaders to do the hard work required to accelerate growth and transformation.
Accelerating growth requires that leaders take ownership for their changed reality, unleashed an ambition for their organization to move towards, and align their teams to a new way of working. A company will only go commercially where its leaders are first willing to grow personally!
The secret to winning your (un)fair share of market opportunity starts with leading your customer to the future, rather than being dragged there. Companies do this by learning to differentiate at the edge of disruption, collaborating across the entire value chain, and creating more impact. Value creation comes from creating value!
Culture is a science, not an art. With the right mindset, team dynamics, and environment, a leader can intentionally curate a culture where it’s psychologically safe to take risks, behave in new ways, and pursue progress over perfection. You don’t just need agreement, you need alignment!

“Peter, Just wanted to say thank you for such a fantastic presentation you did to the Witchery/Mimco team yesterday. I have worked in retail management for the past 20 years found your presentation so ‘on trend’, interesting and engaging. I can’t believe you spoke for 3 hours and it still wasn’t enough.”
“From the creatives in the editing rooms of LA, to the Chairman himself in New York, Peter has had a profound impact on this company. It is very rare, to find someone who is both engaging and whose work is clearly based on groundbreaking research and genuine insight into what makes a business and its leaders successful in today’s uncertain marketplace. I have no hesitation recommending Peter to any organization looking to drive innovation deeper in their company and wanting to inspire their leaders to think differently and take the necessary risk to future-proof their business.”
