We’ll keep this short, if there’s any important stuff here at all, you’ll find it in the Blog.

Peter de Jager was born in South Africa, raised in Ireland and currently lives just outside Toronto, Ont in a small growing large town city called Brampton.

While he’s best known for his leadership role in the Y2K project, his first love over 30 years of speaking and consulting has remained a provocative melange of Problem Solving, Creativity and Change Management. He’s more interested in how we respond to Change than in what is causing the change.

He’s given more than 2,000 media interviews, spoken at the World Economic Forum, published an article in Scientific American, been profiled by the New York Times and the FT of London. He’s presented to audiences in more than 36 countries and published hundreds of articles in dozens upon dozens of publications.

He’s primarily a keynote speaker and facilitator on issues relating to Change Management.

His presentations and workshops are highly interactive, fun, irreverent to mistaken ideas and most distinctively – provocative. He forces the audience, by demonstrating conflicts between their stated beliefs and behaviours, to think differently about what they thought they knew. You can read much of his work in the publications section of or contact him at

Why does he speak? To see the lights go on in the eyes of those who ‘get it’.

    Hey Mr de Jager: happily found this blog randomly – got your Y2K book when I was working in technology in the late 90s. Most people say that it was all hype – personally I say that a lot of problems were fixed in time – I KNOW a lot of work was done. So thanks for the heads up on that one! 🙂

    Will drop in from time to time to read your blog.
