Piet is currently Director of the Master of Engineering Management programme and a former director of the Master of Business Administration (MBA) at the University of Canterbury. Piet mentors CEOs, consults with businesses and he also delivers training workshops.
He has presented numerous short courses and custom in-house workshops for local and international organisations including technology companies, district and city councils, electricity companies, infrastructure companies, government departments, and sports organisations.
Piet has developed a unique training style that combines underlying theory, practical examples and case studies into an integrated programme. He believes that learning should take place in a relaxed and friendly environment and that underlying principles should be taught first, before specifics, applications or tools are addressed. Participants therefore gain a thinking framework that can be readily remembered and applied over a wide spectrum in the workplace
