What are people saying about this facilitator?

Peter is a visionary in the field of knowledge mobilization and knowledge strategies for community well-being. He brings a depth of theoretical understanding about the role of knowledge in social transformation to the challenges of using knowledge to solve the complex and multi-sectoral issues of these times.  He is a gifted networker, a superb facilitator and a creative designer of knowledge mobilization and related strategies.

Peter is on the leading edge of thought within the knowledge management. His, as well as his Canadian colleagues’, mantra is “knowledge mobilization” a concept that lends a much needed social and action orientation to the knowledge management arena.  Based on my personal experience and exposure in the field I believe the methodologies he and others are developing are responding to shifting realities and will have staying power and practicality for society in the coming decade.  Jonathan Green, Director of Knowledge Management, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Thank you for your presentation and follow up conversations. You were truly a hit! You seemed to appeal to everyone both more technically savvy and those less so.  Your message was clear and accessible no matter where people were on the continuum. Thanks again for doing this. Amy Coupal, Executive Director, Curriculum Services Canada
