What People are Saying
Maurice’s approach to strategy development gives a short list of priorities for any business or geography. We used it successfully while I was MD of HP EMEA and Maurice was part on the EMEA Leadership Team.
I feel honored to be at #3 of the top 15 people to follow in 2017 in my primary area of interest. Fred Reichheld is of course at the top of the list.
A true leader in the application of big data analysis techniques to customer and employee surveys. It has been my pleasure to work with Maurice at HP Autonomy where I was CTO and at HP Software. He made a big difference for our customers.
As our head of Customer Experience for Software, Maurice has implemented a number of strategies that have created measurable positive results for our customers and our business. His commitment to our organization, as well as to our customers, has been remarkable and I know we will continue to feel the benefits of his contributions well in to the future.

Peter Artist and analyst
After his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the National University of Ireland, Peter went on to do his doctorate in Cognitive Psychology at Oxford University. Among the important things he learned was that he needed to paint with his left hand, rather than his right. He combined early work at the Max Planck Institute in Munich with the development of a successful career as an artist. He ultimately left psychology to work in the visual arts full-time, including thirteen years as the editor-in-chief of Ireland’s leading art magazine, Circa.
