"HEARING PETE SPEAK HAS BEEN TRANSFORMATIVE"
"He helped me find my purpose..."
He made an incredible impact at the event as our keynote speaker with his enthusiasm, and ability to tell his story in a way that our audience could relate to and be inspired to impact their own strategies.Hearing Pete speak, and following his career subsequently, has been transformative for me personally. He made me think differently about what the role of a marketer could, and should, be as we look at our role in living and working sustainably. He helped me find my purpose and for that, thank you! Pete is also a really nice guy and like all good leaders, finds time to help and support and advice.
Telegraph DEN Live
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.
Global Insight Conferences
Pete spoke at our Social Media Results Conference & received some fantastic feedback from delegates, who said he was 'engaging, interesting and knowledgeable' & shared 'really interesting insights'. It was fantastic working with Pete at this conference and we hope he will be involved in future GIC events!
Ex Marketing Director,
Pete's an engaging public speaker and a great strategist -- a pleasure to work with
Head of Marketing Week Conferences & Awards
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.
University of Westminster
For the last two years, Pete has very kindly come and talked to our first year students studying for their BA in PR & Advertising at Westminster University. His understanding of the digital space and what this means to companies, agencies and those hoping to work in PR is outstanding. He is an authoritative speaker, but also friendly and very approachable - a highlight of the term.
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.
- Oisin Lunny, TEDxr, SXSW Advisory Board Member, Event MC
Pete spoke at the Building Brands marketing conference in May this year and was absolutely superb. We had around 300 marketing professionals in the room, and Pete had them gripped with a talk on building your brand in the social media age.
Everyone enjoyed it and got lots out of it. Pete's entertaining, funny, but has a fantastic wealth of knowledge and experience, that the conference attendees really benefitted from. I would have absolutely no hesitation, whatsoever, in recommending him to anyone else. Really engaging, interesting and a really good person, on top of his marketing experience and background.
