Quality speakers are so good, and Peter is one of the best. Thoroughly inspiring and useful. Slick presentation that engaged you from the moment he stepped on stage.
— Human Resources Institute of New Zealand
Peter’s presentation was sensational – an inspiration to our delegates. The feedback I received from various delegates was all positive and I know that Peter had the opportunity to speak to a few of our member delegates, supplier partners and staff afterwards. The people that I spoke to said they found Peter to be engaging on stage, and that they could relate to his presentation on both a business and personal level.
— Liquor Marketing Group
When we collaborated on our Leadership Summit content, I asked Peter to do two things: give our people genuine tools that they could use in their regular work environment and drive behavioral changes that would help them act like leaders instead of managers. He succeeded beautifully! I see evidence EVERY DAY that your material has lifted their performance as leaders and created its own momentum. Peter, I want you to realise what an amazing impact your work has had for us!
