Type Of Speaker


Pete was a fantastic speaker at The Telegraph D.E.N Live event. His presentation on storytelling in the media age was concise, engaging and exactly what we were looking for in the Connected Customer stream of the conference.

Pete’s an engaging public speaker and a great strategist – a pleasure to work with

I’ve had the honor to welcome Pete on stage 3 times, in 2 different countries, within the past couple of years. He is a very experienced speaker, who effortlessly combines substance with style thanks to his wit, passion and the actionable information he provides. He always ends up as one of the highly rated speakers in our events and he is a pleasure to work with, therefore I am looking forward to our next collaboration.

Pete challenges conventional thinking and is willing to speak up. His ability to strategise as well as deliver is what sets him apart from the many self proclaimed social experts today. I endorse Pete and would welcome an opportunity to work with again someday.

Pete gets digital and has a cracking knowledge of media, social and comms platforms. His ability to focus on consumer lead experiences through the lens of Paid/Owned/Earned means he has an uncanny knack of pulling a vision together in short order. Well connected in the industry, passionate about his craft and with get-up-and-go, wherever he works I’d expect him to make an immediate impact.

Incredibly engaging speaker and a key team player that has the vision and business acumen to accomplish his goals, and enjoys having a good time in the process.

One of Pete’s great strengths is his ability to come up with highly imaginative ideas for client’s campaigns. Highly organised and driven individual with a fantastic understanding of social media engagement strategies in terms of what motivates users and how to get them to interact with campaigns. He has a can-do attitude and someone who I think would add value to any organisation wishing to build a serious social media offering.
