Peter Sugden welcomes you
So what exactly is Sprint Start?
Sprint Start is about people and performance. With a major focus on business, (but not exclusively), I offer coaching, professional development, and products to show people how to do things better. I support business owners, managers and their work teams in developing their capabilities for leadership, team development and importantly recruitment. I also help individuals who are in career transition and looking to stand out from the competition. Find out more
Isn’t performance more than succeeding in business?
Yes, performance is also about sport, health and well being. Have a look at some of the other resources I have, they may be of benefit to you. Find out more
You seem to have a broad range of skills?
There are fundamentals to my capabilities. I have a pretty good understanding of what motivates people and have a unique depth and breadth of experiences (see my biography) in the application of this knowledge. In addition I can connect and engage with people of diverse ages and backgrounds; and am skilled at forging robust and resilient working relationships in results driven environments.
So once more why should I buy your services?
I assist people in a range of environments to do things better. I have a pragmatic approach with a solution focus. In a business sense, if you see motivating, retaining and developing people as critical elements to success then give me a call!

Sports Medicine Australia
As a member of the leadership group with Netball Victoria and now Executive Officer of Sports Medicine Australia Victorian and Tasmanian Branch, I have had a long standing professional association with Peter. He has provided invaluable advice and designed practical suggestions to improve organisational HR management strategies. In one instance Peter designed and facilitated multiple sessions focused on leadership group effectiveness. More recently he has advised and assisted in the revision of a performance management system. Peter has also given ongoing guidance specific to staff performance issues.
Peter’s work demonstrates his results focused, pragmatic and hands on approach, which is all the more effective due to the importance he places on listening. His breadth of experience enables him to bring insights in ways that cut through the complexity and to produce workable solutions. I recommend Peter as someone of integrity and competence.
