His most popular presentations offer solutions and solve challenges around the following:

To bring about change you have to go first. This is one of most fundamental principles of business transformation and yet it is one of the most challenging. Habitually, when we seek change, we look first for others to behave differently (“Do as I say, not as I do”).
This is where Pete’s skills as a top performance coach come into play. He is a master at helping people become aware of the inner voice we all have which holds us back. This allows his audiences to make different choices based on vision and passion rather than fear and doubt.
Organisations often struggle to define their culture and the culture they wish to have. The successful cultures of the future, however, will be far more than a selection of words.

People need to know what their company stands for and where they fit within that. Their own personal values and beliefs must resonate with those of the individuals for them to want to truly be a part of the organisation.
Pete specialises in working with organisations to help establish powerful, positive cultures and then support them in growing it.
To motivate people is to understand the basic of human psychology and what drives different people. At the heart of this is answering the question of “what’s in it for me?”. More than ever, people ask themselves a question and are looking at individual gain for the answers.
Pete shares an incredible tool box of tools, techniques and strategies which result in more self-motivated people, looking to support others and open to asking for help when they need it.
Disruption is an inevitable part of business at both the micro and the macro level. The difference that makes the difference is in how we react. Human’s are creatures of habit. We revert back to what we know.
The solution for this is in by developing Willpower. Willpower has been proven to out predict IQ in a number of areas of performance. Willpower provides the vital self control to choose how to respond to disruption and to use each obstacle as an opportunity to learn and grow stronger.
Pete provides the information and techniques to understand and maximise willpower and to therefore make every disruption a positive opportunity for the organisation.
A world class team is one which has is made up of people who have learned to ‘get of their own way’ and work as one. To do this people have to learn to deal with their ego and insecurities and be committed to the greater good of the team. Together that are always looking for solutions and are committed to supporting one another other no matter what is thrown at them.
The leader focuses on what is important to each team members and works to grow strengths and overcome weaknesses.
Pete teaches leaders the importance of a shared vision, how to understand different peoples values and their different ways of moving through the world.
The emerging statistic are stark – the vast proportion of our teams are physically, mentally and emotionally below par and it reflects in their performance. Recent research highlighted up to 900% return on investment by focussing on corporate wellness.
A leader who focuses on the wellbeing of his people sees better decision-making, higher productivity and improved team relationships – as well as the obvious reductions in sickness and staff turnover.
Pete works with organisation to explore the benefits of a happy, healthy and motivated workforce and the impact this has on them, their lives and on the bottom line.
It is estimated that the average human has between 12,000 and 60,000 thoughts in a day. This constant dialogue going on behind the scenes every moment of every day is the brain’s way of guiding us and helping us make decisions.
The duck is the constant chitter-chatter, however, often operates as mental interference and makes most of us our own worst enemy.
Having coached people from all different walks of life - from high flying business executives, to world and Olympic champions, to everyday people. This fun, interactive and highly memorable session will provide practical tools, tips and strategies for quietening the duck and how to coach oneself for success.
Innovation – the conception, introduction and establishment of something new – is something that is viewed by many from the outside, looking in. Yet, as Tolstoy said, “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
Innovation must start from within, removing distraction and fear to create more space in our minds and unlock our creativity. Innovation comes from small, incremental steps and from considering all aspects of life –health and relationships, as well as work. It comes from giving people the positivity, purpose and sense of achievement to truly flourish.
Pete shares a set of best practices, creating an environment for innovation by helping people become more aware of what is pulling on their energy and drawing them away from what is important.
The leaders who, across history and industry, have been the most inspiring, are above all else, authentic. They know what they stand for and stand for it every single day. By being absolutely consistent they inspired others to follow them.
Pete will share with you how to develop more leaders and some of the emerging thinking for leadership development. Plus he shares the wisdom and knowledge gained from interviews with some of the most inspiring leaders in the world.
