Pete Leemeijer

Pete Leemeijer is a renowned expert in the delivery of large-scale programs of significant strategic change. He is also a bit of an adventurer and whether it’s from the bottom of the ocean or the top of a glacier he likes to look at the world from a new perspective. 

Something I said I’d never do but did anyway:
I overcame my fear of heights a couple of years ago and spent a week ice climbing in Iceland

Who would play you in a film of your life?
Ricky Gervais - because we share the same self-effacing sense of humour!

What is your favourite memory?
Being lucky enough to watch a Soyuz rocket launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and being presented with the launch key as a gift.

Your favourite quote:
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Ferris Bueller

Fun fact about you:
I once took no fewer than six flights over three days to get to Bikini Atoll which is a nuclear testing site from the 40s & 50s and how the bikini got its name. (The ‘atom bomb of fashion’ - really!) I spent two weeks scuba-diving some of history’s most significant warships and aircraft carriers.

If you were given an airline ticket to go anywhere in the world where would you go and why?
I’d be on the first plane to Greenland to climb the glaciers and watch the fantastic Auroras!
