Peter A Hunter
Profile – 2011
Peter Hunter has over 20 years of leadership and team building experience as an officer in 3 different Navies. In the Seventies Peter joined the Merchant Navy. Qualifying as a Navigating Officer Peter spent the next six years circling the globe in oil tankers carrying everything from Heavy Crude Oil in Supertankers to Jet fuel and Kerosene in smaller ships around the coasts of Europe and the Mediteranean. Peter took his first Degree at Sunderland Polytechnic then a Masters in Underwater Technology at Cranfield Institute of Technology. Peter spent several years in the Royal Naval Reserve before finally joining the Royal Navy at the age of 32 as an Instructor Officer. Based initially in Portsmouth Peter soon gravitated to the Royal Naval Submarine Base in Faslane, Scotland, where he spent the remainder of his Naval career as a Rocket Scientist teaching at the Royal Naval Strategic Systems School. After leaving the Royal Navy Peter Settled on the West Coast of Scotland from where he spent the next eight years commuting to South America and the North Sea as a management consultant working with crews on drilling rigs. This experience formed the core of his first book, Breaking the Mould. Breaking the Mould is a collection of stories about what happened when employees were allowed to become engaged with their work. Their performance becomes so amazing that grown accountants have been known to weep. Peter took the lessons from those stories and created the repeatable process called "Breaking the Mould" that allows others to create the same performance by engaging the employees in their own organisations. Peter is now based back in Cranfield and spends his time writing, speaking at Seminars and delivering Training Programmes, allowing others to benefit from this same remarkable insight. The Breaking the Mould process is currently being rolled out in Canada, the USA and India.
