His in-depth understanding of current legislation allows him to provide clients with informed advice and training based on current interpretations.

This expertise is also demonstrated in the successful Licensing Consultancy Services offered by Beyond the Blue and the professional representation delivered for Licensing Committee Hearings, Licence Review Hearings and other statutory licensing processes.

In 2009 he was asked by the Association of Town Centre Managers to become one of the first Lead Assessors for their ground-breaking ‘Purple Flag’ scheme; a national initiatives which assesses the management of the late night economy across the UK. In 2012 he was asked to take that scheme’s first international assessment in Dublin, Ireland.

Peter delivers much of the training and provides many of the consultancy services on behalf of Beyond the Blue himself. His knowledge base is reflected in the approval ratings he receives in feedback, which consistently rate him as ‘excellent’.
