        We had the very fortunate opportunity to have Peter share with us and our clients his experiences and valuable life lessons he gained in his recent solo row across the Atlantic Ocean. It was a truly powerful and inspiring presentation that sparked a flood of positive feedback from our clients who received a tremendous amount of value from the talk, taking lessons and principles back with them that can be applied in both their personal lives and business environment. We will certainly be challenged in future client appreciation events to have our clients as captivated as they were at this event.

        To be able to share Peter’s experiences was truly inspirational, edge of your seat, stuff. The time flew past and I was genuinely disappointed when Peter had to end his talk. It was the perfect start to our conference and set the tone for the rest of the weekend. I will definitely be spreading the word.

        Peter is a giant among men, and moreover so humble in the manner in which he describes overcoming the most brutal physical and mental struggles. As a leadership team, despite experiencing tough times, we left buoyed by the fact that we too have the ability to push through to our vision.
