“Pete really helped galvanise my vision and mission. He has motivated and inspired my team to become leaders”
At the age of five, Pete Cohen can remember asking himself, “what’s wrong with me?” An undiagnosed dyslexic with ADHD, his teacher found him too much to handle so demoted him to the reception class. As he grew, he learned to be self-conscious and full of self-doubt. His parents, however, didn’t give up on him. From his mother – who sought out and found a school that would help him – he learned that “there is an answer to anything.” From his father, a lifetime Rotarian, he discovered that it’s “not what you know but who you know.”
That early wisdom coupled with an intense curiosity set him on a path to discover why people struggle and how he could help them. Inspired by his mum’s daily battle with the scales, he developed a weight loss programme which didn’t focus so much on food and exercise but on mindset and relationship with self. This led to national and international attention and regular TV appearances.
In 2011, when his partner Hannah was faced with a terminal diagnosis from an aggressive brain tumour, he set out to prove that there is an answer to everything and used his extensive network (not what you know but who you know) to find a treatment in the US – saving Hannah’s life.
As a speaker, TV presenter, author and coach he is constantly seeking ways to motivate people to move forward in their lives. He shows them how they can move from who they are to who they want to become, by guiding them to identify their ambitions, overcome their limitations, and recognise their unique talents. By doing so he inspires them to accomplish more than they ever believed possible.
Using his wealth of knowledge and experience he has developed proven techniques, strategies, tools, and systems. Committed to make life coaching available to everyone, he is the founder of Mi365 and the Stop One Start One App.
