  • “Peter gave a sparkling keynote presentation about The New Normal in Financial Markets – the true impact of the digital revolution. He gave the European banks a reflecting insight about their way of dealing with IT (people and daily business) in the payments market. For us it was a brilliant, inspirational way of presenting and creating awareness.”

  • Never before have I had such a positive and overwhelming reaction to a key note speaker. Peter spoke at our recent company kick off and gave a wonderful insight to how business, technology and behaviors are changing in a rapidly evolving environment. An excellent speaker, funny, informative and very insightful. We’re going to find it hard to replicate the buzz and impact that Peter created, a true testament to his wonderful style and approach. Fantastic!
