The business world is constantly changing. It is a world characterized by an increasing variety of collaborations between organizations and supporting business models. Collaborations for the long term, flexible and agile, or even short term focused. Collaborations can be bi-lateral or between multiple partners. New leadership styles are required to succeed in these changing dynamics in the collaborative business world.
Within the context of this vision, Peter Simoons’ (1963) focus is driven by the curiosity to explore what it requires for leaders of the future to succeed in the collaborative business world.
Peter’s mission is to make business collaborations work. He delivers on his mission through a structured and engaging coaching process that guarantees improved results in leadership development, and by enabling best practices for consistently improved results with business collaborations.
Peter’s experience includes decades of working in partnerships and new business development with multinational clients and partners. In his previous corporate assignment, Peter was the Global Alliance Executive, responsible for the global alliance between IBM and Philips.
As an entrepreneur, executive coach and alliance mentor, his clients include industry leaders such as Microsoft, DSM, Reckitt Benckiser, Office Depot, Canon Océ, Philips, SAS Institute, eVision Industry Software and Fitch Solutions.
In 2013, Peter walked the Camino to Santiago de Compostela for the first time. This pilgrimage brought him a life-altering experience and many stories, which often come back as anecdotes in his daily work. Peter is the father of four young adults and lives in the Amsterdam area in the Netherlands. As an avid photographer, Peter captures many stunning views and amazing moments.
