About Peter Kappus

I help great organisations to become outstanding and enjoy the journey.

I’m passionate about helping organisations to impove.

For more than 25 years, I’ve acted as an engineer, a project, programme, portfolio manager, facilitator, trainer, and coach helping teams in world-leading organisations to deliver their day to day work, find clarity and inspiration, realise outstanding outcomes and enjoy the journey along the way.

I employ powerful goal-science frameworks like Objectives & Key Results – OKRs, lean/agile practices, and ultra-inclusive facilitation techniques like Liberating Structures to help teams consistently challenge the status quo and redefine their peak performance.

Clients include the UK Government, Doctors Without Borders (MSF), Wikimedia Foundation, Société Générale Corporate & Investment Banking, BNP Paribas, Credit Suisse, Novartis, multiple private asset managers, Genomics England, Exscientia, the Automobile Association, and many more. Check out my CV).

What to learn more?

I was born in London, grew up in St. Louis MO where I attended the John Burroughs School, finished high-school in Denver, studied computer science then got a degree at CU Boulder, moved to Brooklyn and worked for Kimble Musk, then worked for “The Stock Market” which turned out to be a stock photography company but a great place to hone my technical skills and learn about the wider world of making tech and business work together.

The Stock Market got bought by Bill Gates who moved a bunch of people, including me, to Seattle, and now back in London, I’ve been privileged to help build a successful digital agency, a research, analytics, trading, and reporting platform, a more digital UK Government and a better BBC.

I’ve been a web developer, a project, programme, portfolio manager, flat-pack furniture-assembler, linux systems administrator, CTO, and coach. Along the way, I’ve learned to value diverse perspectives, experimentation, and strong relationships.

I’ve been a meditator since I was young but started practicing Buddhism in 2019.

I’ve also been known to make art and improvise on the piano.

I’d love to know what you’re working on. Drop me a line!
