Peter's Frequently Asked Questions


When I travel the country, whether it's on assignment or whether I've been asked to give a speech, it's always a great opportunity to meet people. And I do.  For the most part they're friendly and very interested about our work. That means they have lots of questions and I thought it would be fun to share some of them with you.

So these are the ten most frequently asked questions I get and, on video, over the next few weeks we'll be adding the answers:

1) Why did you ever agree to dance Gangnam style?

Now there are more questions and I'm sure you have some as well and because of that we're thinking of doing a Twitter chat early in the new year.  So gets those questions ready.  All will be welcome, and all reasonable ones will be answered!
