“When I invited Pete to our team meeting to give a motivational speech, I knew he was going to be good, but I never imagine by how much he would exceed our expectations. Pete took us all on a journey… moving swiftly between intense moments of personal reflection and liberating re-evaluation, to moments of belly laughing humour and tears of delight. Pete seems to speak to everyone’s language, highlighting and challenging core and fundamental self limiting beliefs in order to help us free our lighter side. The feel good factor was off the scale straight after the event, there is still a buzz and many broad smiles on people’s faces when they reflect back on the short but impactful time spent with Pete. On a personal note, it will go down as one of the highlights of my working career!”- Deborah Perry, Insights & Innovation Manager, Boots
“I invited Pete to present at our Dove Spa managers conference in front of our entire team. Pete delivered a motivational, inspirational and entertaining talk over a couple of hours. The feedback was fantastic and the team were left on a high. Pete is easy to work with great fun to be with and knows how to inspire and challenge his audience to really look at themselves and think differently about life”- Frances Hayter, Development Director, International Dove Spa
“Pete was a superb keynote speaker! He took a great deal of time prior to the conference undertaking his due diligence as to what we at New Leaf required from him. After exploring one avenue, he did not mind in the slightest taking a full U-turn and developing a more appropriate theme for our business. The personal service from him was gratefully received. He was punctual and he stayed at the event for questions and photographs long after the scheduled time allocation as per contract. This too was greatly received. His highly motivated and informative speech got us all thinking about how we should behave and adapt to the business world. He was the centre piece to our day and he really delivered”- New Leaf Group
