Peak Performance has been around since last century! Established by Linley Watson and Deborah Truter in Auckland, New Zealand in 1999, Peak Performance grew quickly to fulfill a market need for training and organisational culture development that centred around the customer.

A large project with a major Australian bank was the catalyst to moving head office to Melbourne in 2004. Proud of our antipodean roots, we are an Australasian people and culture consultancy with team members in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland, partners in New Zealand, the U.K. and the U.S. and a wide network of professional consultants across the globe.

 OUR Purpose

As our name implies, we're all about inspiring and developing peak performance in the workplace. We connect people and ideas to unlock potential and facilitate growth in individuals and organisations.

We care about making a positive difference in all that we do and are proud of the measurable results we help our clients to achieve.  We know that our sustained success comes down to our people and our culture.

A Peak Performance Culture

Our core values are integrity, client-centricity, relationships and growth. Here are the key principles that guide “how we do things around here”.


We believe that our clients are our business so we ensure they are top of mind and at the centre of everything we do. 

Do the right thing

We behave with honesty and integrity and always have our client’s best interests at heart. 

Seek to understand

We are genuinely curious and listen with the intent to understand our client’s real issues and opportunities.  Only then can we know if and how we can best add value.

Show we care

We care about our clients and colleagues as people and do our best to help them achieve their personal and professional goals. 

Together we achieve more

Peak Performance is not just another vendor. We build long term relationships based on mutual trust and respect and work in true partnership as part of the team accountable for results.

Bring our A game

Peak Performance fields a highly experienced team that is second to none. We strive to always bring our “A game” by ensuring there is a good fit and we have the best people and tools for the job.
