Take 5 with Pinnacle – Peter

If you’ve ever wondered what makes a Pinnacle Team Events facilitator tick then you have come to the right place! Each month we will be taking 5 minutes to chat with each of our facilitators about their lives both inside and outside of work.

Peter Dowler Pinnacle Team Events Facilitator

What do you love about hosting Murder Mystery events?
The laughter. Hearing a group or team laughing together over the course of a night is “the best medicine”. I love helping groups “let their hair down” after a long day’s, week’s or even year’s hard work. 
Favourite moment as a corporate Murder Mystery facilitator:
At one of the first corporate functions I hosted, a female executive told me to my face that she hated these sort of nights. At the end of the night, she led the conga line and told me what a great night she’d had. It’s always nice to win people over. 
Do you have a favourite Murder Mystery theme?
I’m pretty fond of our 1930s Chicago Gangster theme. 
Most embarrassing moment as a facilitator:
I always make a “dramatic exit” at the end of a night. One night I thought I was running out of the room but ran into a glass door and gashed my head. One of the waitresses was studying to be a nurse and patched me up. 
My favourite hobbies are:
Running and song writing.
