Peter has been a horse owner all his life, played Polo-Crosse and Polo, run marathons and ultra-marathons. He also survived a heart attack in 2010. With his wide and deep experience of different cultures and his exposure to the good and bad extremes of human behaviour, Peter has a unique ability to help people find solutions in their personal and professional lives.
