Peter Cochrane OBE

Former chief BT Technologist


If talking technology is what you want from the motivational speaker at your event, then Dr Peter Cochrane OBE fits the bill perfectly.

However, although the good doctor has been professionally engaged in science, technology and engineering for more than 40 years, his presentations are anything but staid. With a lively and infectious style, Peter delights audiences with his passion for using new technologies and business solutions to solve problems and create wealth.

During his career, Peter has managed teams of up to 2,500 people and budgets of more than £1bn. The motivational speaker has worked at an operational level, created new technologies, products and management systems, transformed corporations and started several businesses.

Dr Cochrane spent many years at BT (formerly British Telecom) where he moved from R&D engineer to head of research and then chief technology officer (CTO). His work was instrumental in the company moving towards using fibre optics and getting involved in mobile networks, e-commerce and digital communications in general.

Apart from being able to recount his time at BT, Peter is a motivational speaker who can draw on a vast amount of experience in many industry sectors, including defence, retail, travel, logistics, energy, transport, pharmaceuticals and healthcare. His roles as investor, manager, adviser or board member have furnished him with enough material to hold delegates enthralled for a very long time.
