Bring Wonder to life

Bringing Wonder to Life
Discover the secret to business prosperity

Why be stuck with normal, when you can shine with Wonderful?

As the creator of The House of Wonderful, Peter captivates the hearts of business leaders across the globe with uncomplicated and refreshing ways to make their business and customer experience shine with Wonderful – without the need for big budgets!

Peter is on a quest to help organisations of all shapes and sizes find the missing currency of prosperity – Passion, Positivity and Purpose, to bring award-winning Wonderful into the way they operate.

Most businesses have their targets, processes and systems all mapped out. Their order of priorities are commonly Finance, Service and then People. Peter flips this equation upside down, to shine the spotlight on the secret sauce of business prosperity – the emotional success of your People.

Peter helps to lift the human spirit of organisations through the roof and infuses an encouraging sense of energy and fun. The result? A vibrant, happy business culture, that ensures tantalising customer experiences – along with a healthy bottom line!

Sounds Wonderful, doesn’t it?

The House of Wonderful
Where fun explodes with possibility

Step inside The House of Wonderful and enjoy a refreshing new playground! Rediscover the joy and wonder missing in your life and your business.

You’ll enjoy permission to venture beyond the boredom of normal and break away from the constraints of conformity! With the aid of Peter’s wizardry tools, you’ll revive your creativity and learn the most essential of business secrets – how to master the art of possibility, fun and permission.

Peter has lived and breathed some extraordinarily Wonderful business cultures in various continents over the past three decades.

Today, Peter brings powerful and real insight, crystallised from his extensive international experience. Peter will show you how to cultivate a culture of fun and appreciation, where your employees will be inspired to deliver wonderful customer experiences as the ‘norm’. The very foundation of business prosperity.

Business with Wonderful
It’s like bubbles in champagne

Throughout his travels, Peter frequently observes many organisations and businesses sadly continue to miss the magic times and opportunities in the moment of now and today because they are so relentlessly engrossed with everything that’s happening next and tomorrow.

While many business leaders are undoubtedly dynamic, results-focused and hard working, they can be guilty of allowing fun to sit in the corner with no chance to play – suffocating the amazing opportunity of daily innovation and excellence.

Buzzwords of the business world of today like Employee Wellbeing, Workplace Happiness, Customer Experience and Attracting Top Talent only flourish with the presence of positive leadership, in the moment of now.

Whether it’s an engaging keynote performance or one of Peter’s legendary FunShops, his aim is to consistently provide a refreshing jolt away from normal, offering renewed ways of injecting fun and wonder to your business culture and customer experience.
