Below is just some of the feedback Pete has received from his inspiring speaking events...

“Absolutely First Class. We were mesmerised. Without doubt the most interesting, stimulating and motivational speaker we have experienced… Pete Goss has excellent management motivation.”
Peek Plc

“Pete was recommended to us as a motivational and leadership speaker. We wanted to put him in front of our customers, a senior group of no nonsense operational management. Having not seen Pete speak before, I was apprehensive. His session was a keynote, the audience was tough, but one minute into his speech, the attention was 100%. You could hear a pin drop, everyone related to his adventure and story of determination in business. We were all truly motivated by it. In our feedback survey everyone voted 5/5 for Pete, we would definitely hire him again!”
Robert Nehme, Director of Corporate Marketing, TECSYS Inc. USA. TECSYS Inc: - SmartVision Summit

“Pete’s work with executives exhibits his ability to reinforce important business lessons. These include, how to move on from having an idea to making it happen and how to manage risk. He always remains humble and grounded - reinforcing the concept of the team approach. Pete’s sessions provide the ideal backdrop for global senior executives to challenge their capability, whilst remaining true to their values.”
Steve Mostyn, Associate Fellow Said Business School, University of Oxford

“What strikes me most about Pete Goss is that he’s authentic! No pretenses, no self-adulation, just exceptional wisdom and leadership skill. He takes real-life adventures and extracts lessons that are relevant to many business situations.’’
Dick Ehst, President, Customers Bank, Wyomissing, PA

‘‘During a lunch event held in Monaco, Pete Goss gave one of the very best keynote speeches we have heard. He inspired the audience with his lively, well organised and thoughtful presentation, which was delivered with a fun and appealing approach. Members of the audience were inspired and could easily relate Pete’s incredible experiences to their own day to day business challenges.’’
Kevin Marsh, Azur Production

“Pete’s presentation, like the oceans he has sailed, has an underlying calm, while on the surface the audience are hit with waves of ideas, advice and emotions that leave a lasting and valuable impression in the business world. An amazing speaker.”
ICAP plc

“Pete Goss has a “can-do” spirit that’s infectious. His exploits are both inspirational and awe-inspiring. When he recounts his adventures, you feel you are at sea by his side! I could listen to him share his stories, insights and wisdom for days - whether in conference or in the pub!”
George Harris, President, HBM Marketing/Communications, Philadelphia, PA

“I have heard Pete speak several times over the last decade. Every time, I see the audience go still, all heads point in one direction; one word comes to mind: Absorbed. Pete is a humble, eloquent and clear speaker, who tells the stories of his team’s remarkable exploits in a manner that powerfully and directly translates to the world of business.”
Peter John Brickley, Global CIO for SAB Miller

“Pete Goss made an enormous impression on our audience. He had the right mixture of “adventures”, pertinent leadership and team building delivered in a relaxed and personable manner which left our audience with a lot to think about.”
Institute of Management & Volvo Trucks

“Pete was simply one of the most inspirational speakers we’ve ever had, and his messages about the importance of teamwork and innovation were very relevant for our business. He’s a great story teller, and an incredibly humble and likable guy. The feedback from our event was overwhelmingly positive about him and his message, so I’d strongly recommend him.”
Richard Cameron, CFO, BT Retail

“If you need a team to be re-energised or inspired, this is your man. Pete delivered his talk to an audience of project and IT staff who had been grinding through exhausting and seemingly endless delivery for the past eighteen months, and who were hugely tired and dispirited as a consequence. At the end of the session all were awestruck and uplifted by the sheer magnitude of Pete's team's accomplishments and attitude.
We have never had feedback like this before : - everyone felt personally connected to Pete's challenges and totally inspired by him. He was the centre of discussion for the remainder of the evening. What an amazing man. What a remarkable ability to connect at such a profound level with people in the audience. We would have him back tomorrow without a seconds reservation.”
Lesley Morgan, Group IT Director, Hachette UK

“I have to say that Pete’s presentation was absolutely first class, his presentation skills were spot on, mixed with a sense of life experiences, challenges and real business issues that he has overcome during his obviously challenging career. I am pleased to say that everyone in my audience has remarked at how impressed they were with his presentation and that it put a lot of the issues that my business is facing, into context and how uplifted they felt after his presentation.”
Avaya UK & Ireland

“Just a few words to say how the team, and I thoroughly enjoyed your motivating and highly inspirational talk.
I was captivated. For once, I had nothing to add. I was silenced. You showed us that if the human spirit is there then anything is possible. You demonstrated again and again that when your chips are down and you have your back up against the wall, deep-seated resolve and determination will see you through. You really fired the team up!

The other personal reflection I had is the ability to let go and rely on the team around you. Some things may not be exactly the way one likes, but so what! Trust the team. Empower every individual. Give responsibility and opportunity to grow.”
Sanjeev Pandya Advanced Oncotherapy

“We found Pete to be one of the nicest, most inspirational, enlightening and empowering speakers many of the audience had ever heard.”
John Baker, Devon Local Medical Committees

“Pete is truly captivating, both as a speaker and as an individual. He was the opening key-note speaker for our conference focusing on the exploration of new environments and challenges within HR and tax and succeeded in inspiring our audience. Faced with a diverse group of delegates, he shared his stories of endeavour and drew meaningful parallels between his experiences and the challenges facing each of us across our businesses today.

His style is balanced and at times understated, not punctuated with dramatic outbursts or flashy media, however through this he delivers a significant impact. Having captured the unwavering attention of every delegate within seconds of his introduction, Pete’s session proved to be a source of energy and a talking point throughout the whole of our event.”
Chris Jenkins, Deloitte
