Peter Queen

Peter works with organisations, and the individuals that shape them, to identify and mitigate the barriers that prevent them from realising their full potential and their shared vision of success. With a career spanning Human Resources, Business Development, Pre-Contract, Procurement, Supply Chain, Bid Management, and Investment, he has a demonstrable track record of adding value as a Consultant, Board Advisor, and SuperConnector.

Peter is “sector agnostic” having cut his teeth in the domestic and global Construction and Property arenas but having also operated in International Trade, Foodstuffs (specifically Water and Dairy), Agriculture, Renewable Energies, A.I., Commodities, Infrastructure (Roads, Rail, Water, Telecoms, Power), Film & Media, and Hospitality & Leisure.  Not only can Peter adapt to new sectors, but actively welcomes the challenges that they present as an opportunity to bring forward fresh thinking and an objective approach.

With an almost evangelical stance on the importance of people in business, and the impact they have on organisational success (both positive and negative), Peter has a vast experience in the development and management of complex and sensitive stakeholder engagement strategies, particularly in the context of multi-disciplinary projects and processes.  He has facilitated both business growth and enhanced profitability through the optimisation of business to business and professional relationships, specifically around the deployment of appropriate CRM systems and their application.

With what some may consider an unconventional career journey, Peter has a unique set of skills and experiences developed through cumulative learning that informs his holistic and agile approach to addressing the challenges and pressures that face organisations and their management teams in the ever-changing domestic and global marketplace.
