Brilliant. Just brilliant. The combination of humour, deep thinking, clear intellect, detailed knowledge of history and sport and powerful delivery made a fantastic finish to our conference.  
New Zealand Food and Grocery Council

Peter is engaging, insightful and funny. He is an ambassador of our national identity, history and the art of storytelling. This was a brilliant event. One couple flew to the Central Coast from Queensland to attend, and the feedback from the community has been consistently 5 stars. I think Peter is going to have to return to the Coast again in the future!

Peter and Lisa were a truly great pairing for the Legends MC / commentary role, and worked off each other brilliantly. They had also clearly put a lot of work into the research, and delivered on all the messaging points we briefed them on, and more. Lisa also showed more of the same as the 'media personality' compering our fashion show later in the week on the steps of the Sydney Opera House.

Peter was very engaging from the start, very relaxed about the event, which made working with him very easy.
