Navigating through the job market is often a daunting task, particularly when you're trying to figure out how to get "in" to the industry, how to advance to a more senior position, or how and when to consider a career change.

Mentorship has been a long-standing resource that many have turned to in order to find guidance and overall direction (and an objective perspective!).

The SFU Alumni Association invites you to join us over food and drinks on Tuesday, November 23rd at Ceilis Irish Pub in Downtown Vancouver to hear about the best ways for you to seek out a good mentor, determine your overall mentorship goals, and leverage mentoring resources in the community.

Twenty plus years of consistent leadership and extensive experience have given Peter the skills to create strategy, champion initiatives, inspire teams and deliver contact and outreach.  For more than a decade, Peter built and led a multimillion dollar practice for PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC)--the world’s largest professional services firm.  As a PwC partner, he provided consulting and assurance services to local and multinational clients in the technology, life sciences, banking, insurance, mining, government and non-profit industries.  With experience that spans the Board room to the shop floor, Peter focused on the governance, strategy, and optimization of people, systems and processes.  Through this extensive exposure to numerous organizations, communities and cultures, Peter harnesses the power of diversity and inclusion in his professional and personal pursuits.

Supporting and leading men and women from all corners of the world has been a privilege during Peter’s career.  Committed to developing human capital, Peter initiated PwC’s first Diversity and Inclusion efforts in BC and Canada.  Formally and informally, Peter has been a mentor to high school and university students, career professionals, senior executives and business owners.

Early in his life, Peter discovered the responsibilities and rewards of investing in community activities and groups.  He has volunteered, worked and governed locally and beyond, and experienced the one-to-one contact that makes a difference in individual lives, as well as organizational development, sound governance and financial turnarounds. Personally and professionally, the deep satisfaction that has arisen from these commitments has reinforced Peter’s dedication to service beyond self, and now is a lifelong endeavor that is shared with his wife and their four children.
