Peter Davey

Managing Director Peter Davey and Associates Limited

Payments are changing at rapid and accelerating speed.  So many online events operate at too high a level of generality to provide real, new insights.  BWG strategy discussions include roundtable discussions with experts in an environment where they are prepared to speak openly and explore thought provoking ideas.  Further, there is scope to engage with participants afterwards if there are particular ideas expressed that are worthy of further exploration.  So it also becomes an effective way to expand one's network.

Amazon

Over the course of almost two years in leading the North American sales organization for Amazon Pay, my team enlisted BWG Strategy to help support our new customer acquisition strategy for Mid-Market and Large Enterprise size opportunities. From the very beginning, Bill Williams and the talented BWG staff sought to understand our overall strategy, help us uncover opportunities for improved customer engagement and interest, and worked tirelessly to help us accelerate sales adoption across a very competitive payments ecosystem. Their planning, their execution, and their follow-up are the best amongst anyone in the industry of connecting companies to the most important insights and prospects needed to achieve aggressive business goals. I offer Bill and his organization my highest recommendation, and will turn to them every year as new future business needs arise for us internally.
