John McCabe, Senior Managing Consultant - IBM Global Business Services
I have never witnessed a standing ovation for any visiting speaker – your achievement was really quite something.
Tim Eddis, Eton College
I can't speak highly enough of Peter and the memorable presentation he gave at the Minerva company birthday celebrations. The way he managed to skilfully weave magic in with business to show just how many similarities there are was truly inspired. As I looked around the room my guests moved between being completely captivated, in fits of laughter, gasping with surprise and all thoroughly enjoying themselves.
Lorraine Ashover, Minerva Procurement
As a presenter Peter provides a great combination of magic & humor, tied in with our key messages. We have employed him to present at exhibitions for over 6 years as well as using him to deliver a motivational speech at a recent annual conference. He is totally professional and has proved to be a huge asset whenever we have used him.
