As President of Network Ireland, I asked Peter to address our annual national conference on the topic of the Future of Work. Feedback from the attendees was that Peter’s presentation was thought provoking, fascinating, engaging and relevant. He had the audience (225 women in business from across Ireland) in the palm of his hands throughout his presentation! From the beginning, as the organiser, when I contacted Peter he was responsive to my requests and on the day of the conference he delivered on time and on topic. President of Network Ireland
Peter was the headline speaker at The AIB Future Sparks Festival with over 7, 500 attendees. He captivated both students and teachers with his dynamic take on the Future of Work and the skills required to prepare and navigate the years ahead. During the talk, you couldn’t hear a pin drop and afterwards, the feedback was exceptional. I would have no hesitation in recommending Peter, totally professional and insightful speaker.
