“He is a Zen Master to the modern CEO”

Dr. Peter Fuda Founder and Principal

Peter is regarded as a global authority on leadership and business transformation, and is considered an indispensable source of competitive advantage by CEOs around the world.

As a management consultant, Peter and his team at The Alignment Partnership (TAP) have created some 40 published case studies of business transformation, and more than 1000 individual case studies of leadership transformation in blue chip organisations including MasterCard, Kraft, Westpac, Telstra, Philips, Bayer, Promina, CSC, Suncorp, Peabody, Crown Casino, Dun & Bradstreet, Thiess, and The Hong Kong, NSW and Queensland governments. In an environment where an estimated 70% of all business transformations fail, TAP have achieved a success rate of more than 90% over the past decade.

As a leadership coach, Peter has enabled more than 200 CEOs to measurably increase their leadership effectiveness and performance.

As a thought leader, Peter’s research and approaches to transformation have been published on five continents. He is the first Australian ever published on transformation in the prestigious Harvard Business Review. He is the Executive Producer of the documentary film Beyond The Superhero, and recently completed his first book Leadership Transformed: How Ordinary Managers Become Extraordinary Leaders, which was published internationally in August 2013.

Peter has completed countless speaking engagements to tens of thousands of senior executives on four continents, is a regular commentator across print, TV and radio media, and his doctoral research is now required reading at universities from Taiwan to the USA, including at Harvard.

Peter recently became an Adjunct Professor at the Macquarie Graduate School of Management (MGSM). He holds a doctorate in Business Administration, a Master’s degree in Marketing and Management, and a First Class honours degree in History.
