Peter Meyer

Founder and Principal, The Meyer Group

As a founder and principal of The Meyer Group, Peter Meyer brings a strong management and general management background to any keynote or talk. In addition to his own experience he conducts ongoing, targeted research in management and strategy among company owners and officers across the United States. Many of the details in his speeches and manuscripts come from this work.

Peter has over a decade and a half of successful experience as a manager and problem solver for two of the largest communications and technology companies in the world and one of the smallest. As a manager of sales, instruction, development, and as a general manager of a separate "intrapreneurial" business, he has sampled and succeeded in a variety of business functions.

A popular and accomplished speaker, he has done speaking tours on management, technology, and strategies throughout the United States, in Europe, the Far East, and Australia. He has also twice addressed the Commonwealth Club of California, guest lectured at the University of California and at Santa Clara University. Some of the companies that he has addressed are listed in the attachment.

Peter is regularly published in business journals. In the past few months he already has recent articles in The Wall Street Journal, The Canadian Business Review, Business Horizons, Dateline, the Internet Business Journal, Executive Female, and The Recorder as well as a profile of him in Entrepreneur. He was recently named the contributing editor for technology for the Business & Economic Review. For a complete list or clips, please feel free to call Capitol Speakers.

Based in Scotts Valley, Ca., The Meyer Group specializes in executive and management development.
