John Acton

Co-Founder and CEO, Peer2Peer

John has 30 years’ experience of working in senior leadership roles within global organisations. As Executive VP of the global DPD Group, he was instrumental in driving 5 consecutive years of triple market growth in international business.

Throughout his successful career, John worked with all the major business consultancies, including DPI (Decision Processes International). While at DPD, John worked with DPI in 2005, 2008 and 2011. This was critical in reshaping his strategic thinking and direction of DPD, resulting in the creation of 3 tipping points that totally transformed the vision and success of the business.

John left DPD in 2012, becoming Managing Partner for DPI Europe. In other words, he was so impressed with the company he bought it!

He has since worked with large FTSE corporations, SMEs and start ups helping them to formulate their Strategic and Critical Thinking, drive innovation and to outclass and outperform the competition.

In 2018, along with 3 other entrepreneurs he established Peer2Peer Global Supporting business leaders to help them build the best businesses and be the best leaders they can be. On 22 October Peer2Peer Club will launch in Hertfordshire, making this knowledge accessible to smaller businesses.
