Peter is dedicated to helping people and building an engaged workplace. He is a skilled and talented developer, facilitator and reviewer of corporate training programs. He is engaging, personable and has a passion for working with people to develop teams and leaders. When you are looking for experience, results and enthusiasm Peter Agnew has them. Engage Peter if you get the opportunity.

Roger Habib

Chief of Staff, Westpac

Peter Agnew is great at what he does – help organisations explore the possibilities of effective leadership and work with people (at all levels) to realise those possibilities. With an empirical basis and with a easy-going but authoritative presentation style, Peter’s insights proved invaluable in assisting the Office to further develop its leadership capabilities. Peter is able to cut-through to the core of issues and to gentle challenge preconceptions and promote positive change. He is that rare beast, a consultant who knows the subject matter back to front and has the dynamism and gravitas to impart it in a way that everyone walks away a lot wiser.

David Skinner

Director, Governance and Communications , Office of the ACT Legislative Assembly

Peter has been fantastic to work with. He has a wonderful rapport and has a great understanding of people. He is forward thinking, innovative and a real people person. He also has a great presentation style that is engaging, enjoyable and thought provoking. I have enjoy working with him on many occasions and would recommend his services to any prospective client.

Peter George AM

Chief Operating Officer , Surf Life Saving Australia

I have known Peter personally and professionally for over 10 years. He is a pleasure to work with. He brings fresh, relevant and people focused programs to any work environment. His enthusiasm to make a difference and get results shows through in all of my dealings with him. He is consultative in his approach while developing a strong understanding of the presenting issues and articulating solutions. He is able to work at many levels of an organisation, whether at the frontline or at an executive management level Peter acts with integrity, efficiency and effectiveness.

Aran Maree

Vice President, Medical Affairs APAC & Japan , Johnson & Johnson

I first met Peter as a participant in a course facilitated by him. I found him to be a highly skilled facilitator who was very engaging, calm and approachable. I was particularly impressed by how he translated complex theoretical concepts into practical messages that related to my work environment and issues I was grappling with. Peter’s management experience in a wide range of roles and sectors meant that he could back up the theoretical concepts with meaningful examples. His skilled use of stories and practical examples ensured that even weeks after the program I would still remember the key themes and apply them in my day to day role and projects.

Dr Christine Jahn

Learning and Development Manager , Ernst & Young

As part of the expansion of AIM into SE Asia and Singapore specifically and working in conjunction with Singapore Human Resouces Institute (SHRI), it was critical that we selected a top quality presenter to ensure our initial programs were exceptional. Peter was identified as an outstanding presenter with excellent knowledge and style to perfectly fit the audience. Peter delivered a fantastic series of programs that really allowed us to show case the very best AIM had to offer. Peters style and empathy was a huge hit with the audience who were captivated and informed creating an excellent platform and appetite for quality management programs from Australia.

Angus MacAlister

Chief Executive Officer , Australia Institute of Management

Peter provided Leadership Development and Training to our Board of Directors and several staff. I found Peter to be extremely engaging, very knowledgeable and experienced and genuinely interested in our business and our direction. Peter has a wonderful way of challenging people and encouraging them to further develop their leadership qualities. I would recommend Peter to any organisation looking to grow their people professionally. We will continue to work with Peter in the future.

Clive Stiff

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Unilever Australia and New Zealand

People Development Australia has conducted a number of senior management activities for my executive team over the last few years. Peter has conducted a three day executive team retreat that allow us to deeply explore how we behave as senior leaders and more importantly how we interact with each other and our staff. The program provided some outstanding insights that has helped us better understand ourselves and each other and the way we lead the organisation. We have also all undertake 360 degree leader development and Peter provided an empathetic, stretching and insightful coaching framework around the program. We are proud to have Peter and PDA involved in the development of our senior management and staff and I would recommend PDA for your team development.

Tom Duncan

Clerk (CEO), ACT Legislative Assembly

Peter has worked with our senior leadership team over the last couple of years. Peter is a great facilitator who is extremely respectful to all participants and his honesty, commitment and insightfulness bring out the best in everyone he has worked with. Peter’s notable adaptive style and great passion for leadership is evident in all his work and engenders a high degree of trust with whom he works with.

Tim Dorgan

Group Organisational Development Manager, Citywide Services Solutions Pty Ltd

It is a great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of WISE Employment. WISE hired Peter Agnew from PDA to deliver a National Leadership Development program across the Executive, Senior Management and Frontline Management teams in 2016 and 2017.

Prior to working with us, Peter ensured he understood the business, our key objectives and was able to tailor a program that provided expert leadership training. With his excellent facilitation skills, practical experience and his in-depth knowledge of such tools as DiSC and Emotional intelligence, he was able to drive engagement and commitment from our leadership team in a way that led to increases in leadership capability, performance and culture.

I have no reservations in recommending PDA to deliver any of their programs.
