“I was organising 3 conference events, when a colleague who had been lucky enough to see Pete present before told me all about him. The conferences centred on the delivery of great customer service, with a heavy focus being on changing behaviour, winning hearts and minds, and encouraging people to embrace change. Pete therefore seemed to be the ideal choice, and we definitely weren’t disappointed. Pete ran a session for each conference and was an extremely engaging speaker. He really did create a light bulb moment for so many people in the audience, and made them take a look at themselves and examine their own behaviour and contributions. Our feedback forms produced loads of positive responses with the sessions being described as ‘inspirational’, ‘motivational’, ‘thought-provoking’ and ‘amazing’! We look forward to working with Pete again in the future as he definitely struck a chord with so many of our people. We hope to continue the great relationship we have formed with him in such a short time.”

His energy and thoughtful discussion create a variety of actions: smiles, when he brings appropriate humour to the conversation; and eyebrows up, when allows you think differently about something common. He’s a treat, and a great add to your agenda.”
