Welcome to Peter
Venn's resource directory
Within this site,
you'll find out about me, my family and my hobbies,
interests and passions.
The site is designed
to be a quick-access tool for anyone with interests
in personal development and training, while giving
quick access to subjects as diverse as science
fiction and jazz music.
I try to make a point
of adding new interesting sites every day or so, so

A little about me:
I'm 44 years old, currently single (again!) and work

training goes back many years, however I haven't felt
this engaged in the discipline for a long time.
Merchants have a knack of challenging people in order
to get the best from them. I believe that it's due to
their open culture that I've been able to accomplish

on team effort and collaboration, and within this
culture, it's been possible for me to help drive the
launch of no less than ten complete career
development programmes for staff within our Managed
Services division. Next year, we'll be designing new
programmes to support every role within the company,
and as well as this, I'm developing an Open Learning
Centre for the company that will be accessible to all
staff worldwide. You can probably tell already that
Merchants is a very exciting place to be!
