The best thing about working in PR is…

The continual challenge to always be more creative and challenge your thinking, to stay ahead of your competitors and ensure you are the best at what you do.

The one thing I would change about the industry is…

I think we’re doing better but the industry still needs to do more to increase diversity among our emerging talent, and ensure we market PR as a career more in schools and universities to potential recruits who might not otherwise understand the opportunities in the industry.

I can’t live without…

A morning coffee.

Nominator says:

"Peter is a natural – his smart and insightful advice, and resourceful can-do attitude, have rightly won the trust of even the most senior clients."
