Executive coach, Peter Simoons, provides business and alliance leaders with practical ideas and strategies to rise above current hindering practices and collaborate most effectively.
Peter Simoons’ Expertise
Peter is a Certified Strategic Alliance Professional (CSAP) as well as a Certified Coach in the Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coaching methodology. He’s devoted decades to using his knowledge to help businesses form more rewarding alliances.
Past clients have included internationally oriented organizations such as DSM, Reckitt Benckiser, MedinCell, eVision Industry Software, World Waternet, Bayer Crop Science, Microsoft, Siemens Building Technologies, ABN AMRO, Royal Philips, and SAS Institute.
Over the decades, Peter has co-founded “The Alliance Accelerator,” an alliance of four European alliance specialists to combine the myriad services of consulting, coaching, education, and legal support that businesses need to increase their transformational and innovative value, and “The Alliance Roundtable” which is a gathering of top strategic alliance executives who share insights and inspire each other to be even more effective.
Peter gathers inspiration from his life as well. He has walked the Camino to Santiago de Compostela several times. The first time, in 2013, was a life-altering experience for him, and he frequently shares the insights he has gained from the journey with his clients.
Inspiration to Reach Higher
Peter’s expertise is helping alliance leaders see past the mindsets that hinder them at the moment and find practical, measurable strategies to achieve goals, even if it’s challenging and requires a push outside his clients’ comfort zone. The most rewarding work usually fits in that category as it occurs with the greatest need.
He holds himself to the expectation of providing practical, applicable solutions to his clients’ challenges. A client once reached out to him saying, “I have followed your blog for years appreciating your practical and pragmatic philosophies,” and after they worked together for half a year, she introduced him to her executive committee with that same description. He considers that a marker from which to gauge the rest of his work.
Peter Simoons drives himself to excel, challenging his own expectations, surrounding himself with others who future drive him, and he shares the knowledge and strategies he gains from all of this with his clients to help them build similar alliance strategies.
Peter is the coach and mentor you want by your side during those “headwind” situations, when progress seems difficult, as well as “tailwind” situations when the wind is at your back and there’s a need to sustain focus during fast paced growth. He has a great instinct for bridging connections and a talent for delivering strategic solutions for optimal business impact.

Peter has coached me in the development of a new direction for my business. He is an excellent coach. He asks incisive questions and sets me on to action. This has resulted in focus, speedier development of my business ideas and a direction I’m happy with and probably would not have dared take without Peter’s work.
