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.
On behalf of Lifeline Gold Coast, I would like to thank you for the amazing job you did at the launch of our Business Lifeline seminar. I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation and was inundated with positive remarks from colleagues and attendees singing your praise. The presentation was interactive and very engaging. I truly believe each person who attended will be able to take something that they will incorporate into their business from your stimulus.
