About Peak State
“Disrupt yourself or be disrupted.”
John Chambers, ex-CEO Cisco
The price of keeping up is continually re-inventing yourself and your business.
Peak State was founded by Andrew Ramsden from a passion to help organisations keep up with the ever-changing world around us and succeed with financial, social and environmental goals.
To increase the leadership and innovation capacity of businesses so they can grow, transform themselves, disrupt their industry and become the business they strive to be.
We envision a future where every person feels happy and empowered in their work and personal lives. They are able to realise their potential and help others around them do the same. As a result, businesses achieve far better results for profit, people and the planet.
At Peak State, our values are more than just words on a wall, they guide everything we do. We like to work with organisations who’s values align with ours.
