He is particularly interested in the new rules in business and society in the Anthropocene.

As an author, lecturer and interview partner, Peterka, a self-confessed humanist, inspires, surprises and provokes. He creates context, conveys relevance, and instigates creative thought and bold action with caring rigor. Through his 25 years of practical experience in the tension between new technologies and human behavior, he delivers actionable recommendations.
In doing so, he pushes the limits of imagination and feasibility without losing sight of everyday life. Because, not least as a cyborg and father of two children, he is interested in rapid change and concrete action to keep the world of the 21st century humane.
