Up next, is Pete Byrne, our esphr CEO and founder, who discusses his passion for the sea and why the late, brilliant comic Sean Lock – and former school pal – would be the perfect dinner guest…
We genuinely care about our customers and our team. We see ourselves as a true extension of our customers’ HR/ER teams and really listen to them to continuously improve the overall experience – it is a passion!
We help HR and ER teams genuinely transform their in-house ER capabilities and help them become better, and more independent, in their roles.
Sam Davies, our head of commercial operations. I just don’t know what the business would do without her.
I have so many fond memories of our team ‘away days’ and holidays together that I could not possibly pick one experience out.
The variety of work that is continuously offered up by the business and our customers. Every day is a privilege, with a mix of interesting, strategic and tactical issues to address.
Dropping off yachts around the world as a professional delivery skipper.
As the UK’s leading law firm disruptor for employment law and ER support to the mid and large enterprise business sectors.
I once sailed across the southern Indian Ocean in a yacht race from Durban to Perth.
My wife Clare and our two dogs Peppa and Bella. It worked last time, so why change a winning formula?
Michelle Obama – I also think she would be an interesting next presidential candidate. Sean Lock – an old school friend who sadly died of lung cancer recently. He was someone who was so funny, he made your tummy hurt!
There’s also Sir Richard Branson to learn a business trick or two from; the ex-England cricket captain Sir Andrew Strauss who could talk through leadership at an elite level, and the fantastic Ruth Strauss Foundation – in memory of his wife – and Liam Gallagher as I think he would make for an interesting dynamic!
It’s our mission to advise and develop the employment law capability of HR professionals wherever we can, helping HR teams make a real commercial difference to their organisations. That way, you spend less time solving operational issues and more time actioning projects that drive far-reaching change in your company.

Pete set up esphr in March 2003, after running an HR resource management business for three years.
