Peter had the students and staff members completely engaged throughout his presentation. His stories are inspiring, and he connects so well to his audience. Usually when it comes to Q + A’s, the students can be a bit shy. Not on this occasion! To see so many teenagers raising their hands, asking meaningful questions relating to goal setting, resilience, mental health, and sports psychology was awesome to witness. I’d highly recommend Peter to any school or corporate business seeking an exceptional public speaker.

We were privileged to have Peter as guest speaker at our end of year celebration function. Peter captivated our audience with his inspirational story and words of wisdom. His sense of humour and valuable life lessons motivated all in the room to use his 4 tools to reach one’s goals. We look forward to having you speak to us again!

Peter spoke to our Year 12s on their first day of the school year. Peters passion, inspiration and advice resonated with students and his session was the highlight of their day. The students were listening to every word with such intent, you could hear a pin drop. Our students left Peter’s talk feeling motivated and excited about the year ahead with sound advice about the importance of hard work and resiliency in life. Thank you so much for talking to our students, they will never forget it!

Peter Bol has been involved with the Victorian Institute of Sport’s (VIS) Community Programs from 2016 to 2020 and during that period has been one of the most popular speakers and VIS facility tour guides. Peter has a fantastic story to share along with a great personality and charisma that his audience is drawn towards. He has a way of relating to all the groups he has worked with here at the VIS, from primary school students, secondary students to international university students or corporations. It doesn’t matter what group he speaks to, he has a way of connecting with them. Since joining the VIS Community Programs in 2016, he has grown in confidence and competence, to the stage where he was able to host the VIS TV sessions at our Awards of Excellence. Coming to Australia as a refugee from South Sudan, Peter demonstrates resilience and overcoming adversity. Everyone can learn something from his story and I would definitely recommend him as your next guest speaker.

Our luncheon was a huge success today and Peter Bol was great as our guest speaker. I had numerous staff and students come up to me at the conclusion of the event to say how much they enjoyed listening to Peter’s story.

Thank you again for a wonderful afternoon at the VIS. All of the students had such a great experience which they are still talking about. Seeing the VIS and meeting Peter Bol is one of the highlights of the course.
