Peter Salsbury
“Helping high performers discover untapped potential
 and putting it to use is what matters most in my work.”

Peter’s experience as a member of Plc Boards for the last 15 years (including
Marks & Spencer as CEO) has led to his specialisation in one-to-one work at the
most senior levels in commercial organisations. He approaches the long-term
improvement of performance by using current issues to develop more effective
leadership and management methods. He believes in the need to take risks, make
decisions and be comfortable with your accountability with the outcome. You will
certainly need to maintain a sense of humour to handle these well!
