How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

Entrepreneurs will get the most of out of me if we work for concentrated periods of time together (in-person always better) and we wrestle with the big issues and opportunities of the day.
We then have a gap while the entrepreneur implements, and we check in again down the line - whether it is the next week/fortnight/month.
This is a better use of time for us both and keeps it high energy and focussed on creating real-world impact.

Cassandra Walker
We worked together  •  .
I work with Peter at the Yale Center for Business and Environment where he is an Executive Fellow. As part of Peter's role he coached studen ... t-led start-up ventures, entrepreneurs, and engages in wider level strategy conversations about Social Entrepreneurship at Yale. Peter has been an incredible asset to our team - our staff and students have been blown away by his ability to engage as an advisor. He is very personable an outstanding listener, asks great questions, pushes our students to think from different perspectives, and gives sound advice and frameworks for thinking about their businesses. He is able to build relationships with people incredibly quickly, and every student who works with him comes away enthused and very clear about their next steps. Peter is great at getting people to articulate their overarching motivation, analyzing their business strategy, and helping our teams break down their plans into manageable next steps. He brings the big picture from his impressive career, and also the down-to-earth perspective as an entrepreneur himself. I would not hesitate to recommend Peter as an advisor to any entrepreneur.
