Background

Peter’s early career was in Information Technology working initially in IT consultancies focused on Financial Services and Asset Management.  As his career developed he moved into a front line role, managing a business unit at HSBC Investment Bank. In 2005, as a director at Plus Markets Group, he was instrumental in setting up a new stock exchange focused on smaller companies and start-ups.

In parallel with his financial services career and with his wife (artist and interior designer Ruth Canning) he setup an interior design and retail business, Canning + Sheridan Interiors, in 2003. This business concentrated on designing high-end private residences and retailing contemporary Italian furniture and lighting through their store in Kensington, Central London.

It was through working with international design clients and manufacturers that Peter became interested in communications and training. He has been a full time trainer and management consultant in 2013. He is the author of “The English Interview Question & Answer Book” a guide to doing interviews for non-native English speakers.
