Once named by PR Week Magazine in their “30 under to 30 to watch,” Peter is recognised as a leading internet commentator around the world, and he is read and followed by a huge international audience. He is a serial Internet entrepreneur who initially founded and sold Help A Reporter Out (HARO), a platform that has become the de-facto source for journalists on deadlines.
