Peter Priednieks – Director of Learning

Senior Consultant  • Reflective • Coach

 I have held a very varied work life, beginning as a Science teacher in Nottingham.In my late 20s I moved to become an RAF Officer with responsibility for training and development. This was followed by being a Training and Development Manager in industry for 13 years.

I joined Dementia Care Matters to work with David in 2000 initially as the Development Manager/Consultant of the team. I have always worked from the perspective that each of us has our own reality and need to be reached in order to realise our potential. Coming into the field of dementia care brought different aspects of my personal and work life together.

I specialise in linking Leadership and Change Management with implementing person centred care. To achieve this I draw on my experience as a Master Practitioner in NLP (Neuro - Linguistic Programming) which explores how people form their identity and view of the world.

During 2015 /2016 I have been priviledged to be the Lead Consultant and Project Manager of the first 3 Butterfly Care Homes Projects in Alberta, Canada and from July 2016 will be undertaking this role too with the first 3 Butterfly Care Home Projects in Australia

I am known to end the day with my catchphrase which is “I need to watch a comedy!”
