PETER L. ALLEN, Ph.D.

I am a strategic business leader with deep roots in both academia and business.

 

Working through relationships, ideas, communication, thought leadership, and teaching, I build functions, turn ideas into reality, and help people and organizations develop and grow.

 

Educated at the University of Chicago and Wharton, I've worked at McKinsey, Google, and the Priceline-Booking Holdings Group, where I’ve been the VP for People and the VP for Public Affairs at Agoda.com, the Group’s Asia-based subsidiary.

I write, teach, and advise individuals and organizations about learning and growth.

Writing

My writing has appeared in publications ranging from the McKinsey Quarterly to the University of Chicago Press to Business Korea and Knowledge@Wharton.
