Testimonials for Pete Cohen
“It has been brilliant to observe the changes in my team after the keynote that Pete delivered and to see them grow and take on the challenges of growing a business in a highly competitive market. I would highly recommend Pete to anyone that is looking to energise, motivate and inspire their organisation.”
“Pete delivered a talk to our WW Leadership team at Blue Prism. To say that I was hugely inspired and excited during and after this session was an understatement. The energy and passion that Pete brings is phenomenal. His ability to help individuals see the wood from the trees is fantastic. We all get clouded in terms of our goals and objectives at times. Pete helped every one of us to bring clarity to what is right in front of us. To not fear looking at and doing things differently is critical in life let alone in a leadership position. Without doubt, Pete brought that clarity and desire to do things differently NOW to every one of our leadership team in that room. Pete was truly inspirational to me. I would highly recommend and encourage everyone, whether in a personal, business or sport capacity to spend some time with Pete. He will have a massively positive impact. “
“Pete’s enthusiasm has been a significant contribution to create a team spirit which surely will increase our performance and potential. We thank Pete for his excellent job and for his friendly and warm attitude that made our conference a great success.”
“Pete’s 45-minute session at our annual company kickoff day was magnificent. We are acutely focused on engagement within PMGC and many of our company days focus on that; working out how to get the best out of each other to benefit our customers is a huge priority.”
“Pete was the “Inspirator” presenter at my WW Sales Management meeting in June. He was on first to set the tone for the two day workshop to help us continue towards our goal of world class sales leadership. He did an outstanding job, the team were pumped up at the end of the two hours and were in exactly the right frame of mind to take on the messages that were coming. Top class!”
“This man is an absolute Genius!
I was fortunate to spend a day with Pete, which was one of the most thought-provoking, inspirational & mind-blowing days I’ve ever had.

“Pete presented our 2016 Good Spa Guide Awards to an audience of 450 spa professionals, after they had been in a conference all day.Pete owned the room with tremendous energy. He was positive, powerful and vibrant. We hope to work with Pete again in the future.”
“Pete Cohen is an excellent coach and a great example of how to motivate yourself for change. He worked with our senior management team at a major conference and this showed how effectively he could home in on what needs to happen and then to galvanise people to make a positive change. Good fun too.”
“Wow, words alone won’t do this justice but Pete is a remarkable speaker and, I imagine, a remark-able mentor. I feel privileged to have met him.
He really strikes me as the kind of guy who wants to make the world a better place, one human being at a time – I felt so lifted and inspired to make the best of myself (and others around me) after his talk.
When he came to speak to us as a large group (50 ish), each and every one of us came away with the sense that he had reached us and spoken to each of us individually. He spoke knowledgeably and passionately in a way that reached people’s humanity: touching both their frailties and every person’s deep yearning for greatness.
His talk was both memorable and actionable. I learned several tools to use each and every day to overcome my own worst enemy: myself.
In the words of Zig Ziglar, people complain that motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing and that’s why we do it daily! I came away from Pete’s talk with the tools and the will to start each day anew and to feel inspired.
Thank you Pete!”

“He was really excellent and incredibly well received. He had so much energy and really engaged with the delegates.”
“We were lucky enough to have Pete deliver a development session to our group in January. A vibrant and energetic speaker, he was immediately able to engage the audience and drive us to deliver the groundwork for change. I’d happily recommend him if you want a fresh perspective on your own, or your organisation’s leadership.”
