The Leaving Of Liverpool
Farewell to you, my own true love,
I am going far, far away
I am bound for California,
And I know that I’ll return someday
– The Pogues
Peter Moore was born in Liverpool, but has travelled the world building an incredible career in sports and technology. In this very personal talk, Peter looks back on how his unique cultural heritage of growing up a Scouser served him throughout his life especially during some of the most challenging times.
Starting out as a commission-only shoe salesman living in a trailer, Peter went on to become one of Silicon Valley’s most influential leaders guiding global brands such as Microsoft Xbox and EA Sports and working with the likes of Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer among many many others. And then, more recently, how his journey has led him back home to Liverpool and sport where it all started. Peter will talk about how embracing who you are can lead to a life of unexpected opportunities.
