Peter Cochrane is a former Head of Research at British telecommunications and has over forty years of practical experience to his credit. 

Renowned for his pioneering and out-of-the-box thinking he has resisted specialist views to adopt a broader spectrum approach to management, technology and operational experience thus joining the dots on multiple levels. 

Rising through the ranks at BT from a linesman to R&D engineer, Head of Research and ultimately CTO with a 1000 strong team under his jurisdiction, Peter was ultimately answerable to the main board for developments in regard to future IP, eCommerce, eRetail, eLogistics and numerous other businesses.

Since Leaving BT, Peter has worked in the start-up sector involved with the MoD and defence, logistics, travel and transport, retail, energy, education, entertainment, healthcare, security and I.T both in management and on a consultancy level. He was a founding director of eBookers which went on to become one of the largest eTravel businesses in Europe and a founding investor for Shazam, the hugely popular mobile music identification service, now one of the most downloaded Apps in the Apple Store. Peter has also served in an advisory capacity at the Qatar Computing Research Institute and was appointed the UK’s first Professor for the Public Understanding of Science and Technology.

A graduate of Nottingham Trent and Essex Universities, Peter is now and established lecturer of academia and one of the country’s most highly regarded keynote speakers and exponents in technology, future trends and the effects of change on corporation and individuals.
