Testimonials

My Leadership Team have given me very complimentary feedback about the training session – What Leaders Do – and I think one of the most common reasons for this was the engaging way you presented the information. You had an appropriate mix of PowerPoint, hand drawings and models as well as relevant storytelling to really bring across your ideas and tap into the team’s imagination. The use of the memory book was masterful and still useful after the event as a way to reinforce the lessons learned. My team is still buzzing from the workshop, as am I, and I feel it fitting to sincerely thank you for a great day. I really appreciate the way you delivered exactly what we talked about – and then found ways to add much more.

Most significantly, tweaking of the content and format ensured that clients left the process equipped and committed to taking action in their business. This score lifted .. to 95% firm commitment in the second round. These scores exceeded our expectations. Most importantly, our ongoing follow-up of clients showed that this initial commitment led to real changes in the vast majority of firms that participated.

Peter has that rare ability to seize an audience with his enthusiasm; build a castle in front of them with his words – and then persuade them to live in it ever after! Our team started to change the day after attending a single 3-hour presentation with him.
