Peter is the master! - As an event organiser, Peter is a dream to work with. From arrival to departure he was adaptive, smooth and seamless - There were various last minute changes with the event and Peter weaved them into the day as if they had always been there, leaving our audience unaware and enjoying the event. Thank You!
