Thank you so much for a great session – all the reactions were ‘awesome, amazing, and inspirational’. The only thing we’d do differently next time would be to book you further in advance so we have you present on the first day of our event – you set a great tone and really energize and inspire. Brilliant. We will have you working with BP again soon.

Peter Sheahan could light a small town with energy, enthusiasm and insight. He combines deep practical knowledge with unending passion for both his subject matter and his audience. In my 10+ years of speaking with executive-level audiences, I find Peter to be unsurpassed in his ability to engage senior executives. Peter can draw out of your people answers to questions they did not know they had. That, and even more powerfully, he will have them question the very answers they come up with in a way that reveals an even deeper level of insight and understanding. Whether he is presenting or facilitating, Peter is clearly world class educator.

Peter – I really enjoyed your session yesterday in Shanghai! Totally on point for what we are dealing with now, and especially relevant for China. I now have the tools to build a business case for employer branding thanks to your unique and powerful model for building our brand and attracting top talent.

Peter's vibrant energetic style engaged the Ericsson team to think about thriving and surviving with Generation Y. He is living proof of Generation Y and turns it on!

Thank you for your thought provoking presentation at Google's HQ in Mountain View in December. You bring terrific energy to the Gen Y topic. A number of Google staffers reached out to say how much they enjoyed your thought/discussion provoking presentation. The College team in particular will surely find real world applications for the Gen Y data you provided. You gave us great insight into the minds of literally hundreds of potential Googlers. For us to better understand how to motivate and develop that talent will certainly be key to our continued success.

You know I’m a tough audience and not easily impressed. Peter was wonderful. He ranks as one of my favorite Success Forum speakers of all time. His remarks were brilliant, relevant and timely. He invested himself in the day and wove content from the day’s programming and other speakers into his keynote. We all had fun and learned a lot.
