“Peter rocked the stage at TEDxMongKok and provided many mind-blowing examples of how crowdsourcing is drastically changing the way the world works!” May 28, 2012
Sarah Woodhouse , Group Managing Director at Cohn & Wolfe-Impactasia | Social Media Week 2011 Hong Kong
“Peter was such a great support to us during Social Media Week and a passionate volunteer. Although we were based in HK and Peter in Shanghai it didn't stop him becoming an instrumental part of the team that contributed to the success of this inaugural event. During the week itself, Peter made the trip to HK and immediately picked up responsibilites and supported every event he could get to. Peter was a real flag flyer. He's an asset to his company and to the social media community in China/Greater China.”
Alessandro Teglia, Community Program Manager | Microsoft
“I met Peter online first. Little by little I started following his social media insights and his blog posts to realize then we were working for the same Company! Peter demonstrated high skills on social media environment, being able to drive enthusiasm, product announcements, web 2.0 tips and tricks and, in the end, driving market share. His work on Microsoft KB was really astonishing, driving the success of the Microsoft Knowledge Base worldwide with a lot of creativity, passion and total devotion. I had the pleasure to meet Peter face-to-face and I have to say his commitment, his enthusiasm, his action oriented mind really outnumbered my expectations. A high skilled professional IT guy I would highly recommend to work with”
