Testimonials

Peter spoke to our 70 most senior leaders about the impact that Generation Y's will have on our culture, leadership and work processes in the coming 3-5 years. He's dynamic, engaging and fun. He uses non-threatening metaphors, and enables people to see things in a new way. He interacts superbly with all ages and styles of managers and enables them to confront their own biases and blind spots. An extremely effective speaker, who I strongly recommend.

Peter clearly spent a great deal of time researching CPA Australia and as a result we were rewarded with an insightful and inspiring presentation that was specifically tailored to our audience. I have heard many motivational speeches but none of them have left such a lasting impression on me as Peter's.
CPA Australia

Peter's approach and delivery of "Presenting for a Generation Y Audience" was as motivational as it was practical. The mix of theory, based on Peter's research and wealth of experience, combined with a healthy dose of practice worked a treat. Even though each of the participants had a different style and different story to tell, Peter was able to give each of us that bit of inspiration that we needed to take our individual presentations to the next level.
University of Southern Queensland

Peter Sheahan presented at the New Apprenticeships Centre’s Marketing Forum in August 2004 on Generation Y. All the participants said his presentation was exceptionally informative and worthwhile. Peter provided insights into this largely diverse target group and expertly conveyed his message of how we can best communicate the benefits of New Apprenticeships to this generation both as an employer and a client.
