Director, HR Consulting Services
Pete Needham is a professional provider of on-demand consultancy services embracing People, Culture, and Strategy.
In Pete’s early career, spent in Finance in the United Kingdom with Unilever, he learned to appreciate that “what gets measured gets done!” Moving to North America at the turn of the century, he transitioned into Human Resources roles with Unilever Canada, and End to End Networks. Pete sees the value in aligning People Strategy with Business Metrics, but never forgets that “You Manage Things, You Lead People”.
Pete seeks to build long-term, mutually beneficial business relationships, and unashamedly uses his British sense of humour to achieve balance between adding meaningful value to every client while having fun!
Advocating that every organisation - no matter how big or small - should give to their community tangibly and consistently, Pete has embraced this through his facilitation of the TechConnex Human Resources, Leadership Development, and Strategy Peer Groups, serving technology companies in the GTA. He is commitment to giving a percentage of all revenue earned to the Food Banks of Canada.
Simon Sinek once said “If you don’t understand people, you don’t understand business”, a sentiment that Pete not only passionately believes, but which speaks to the heart of his own mission and vision.
