Peter Cosgrove comes from a family of nine children. He is married with two kids Emily and Tom. He has a great deal of experience of games for young people, especially prior to the advent of iPads. His mother ran a crèche for twenty years in which he helped to teach in for a number of years. As Chairman, both of Junior Achievement, an organisation devoted to improving the achievement of children in Irish schools, and as Chairman and coach of his local athletics club, he has worked with primary schools and a multitude of kids over the past 20 years.
Peter is passionate about brain teasers and riddles that kids can use to outsmart adults.
He is a regular conference speaker on the topic of the future of work and he speaks a lot about the dangers technology can bring with it and the fact that kids are interacting less with each other and more with their screens. He also had the dubious honour of winning a national RTE radio show titles "Ireland's funniest parent" in 2011.
