What Pete Cohen's clients say
"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. If you’re wondering how to get your Business or Team performing better and you’re not sure about the right steps to take, the best questions to ask or what you need to know about yourself first give Pete a call – this man will help! I promise you that it’ll be well worth your time. Thank you Pete"
"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!"
"Have just returned from a Leadership workshop with Pete with the management of Hotel Du Vin and Malmaison Hotels. We had am amazing day of personal development, looking at our own and teams performance and the role of Great Leaders in our organisation. The training helps you to look at your management style and performance in an honest, raw and insightful way. Something rarely done. Pete’s training resonated with all of the leaders in many different ways. Pete was an exceptional trainer and his shared knowledge will support me in continually developing the hotels fantastic people. Pete is Highly recommended."
"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."

The Magnificent 7 to Optimal Health.
Great health does not happen by chance but by design.
Pete will explain that to have magnificent health in todays society we must become deviants. We must be prepared to successfully resist conforming to your society’s standard way of doing business.
You have to make all kinds of inconvenient and unpopular choices. The great new is that this does not require superhuman willpower, single-figure body fat percentages, buns of steel or an endless stream of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. It does however require a willingness to toss some official looking rule books out the window and begin to do things differently.
In his talk Pete will share his Magnificent Seven model for optimal health. This is our ability to Eat, Drink, Talk, Move, Sleep, Poo and Think Right.
Pete will share practical wisdom and tools to improve these seven areas so you set yourself for optimum health and well being.
Mastering human behaviour in challenging times
Our modern-day working world is in a state of crisis. Every day there seems to be more pressure on everyone to do more with less, and to come up with new ideas to stay ahead of the competition.
The traditional demand for productivity is no longer enough. Employers now expect their workforce to be both constantly creative and constantly productive to keep up with the never-ending demands of their jobs – and it’s not working. In the rush to boost performance, we have become over-worked, over-scheduled and overwhelmed. We come to work armed with to-do lists, life-hacks and inbox-zero mentalities. It’s exhausting!
Statistics which show that only 30% of the workforce is fully engaged and only 3% are on task and focussed, are not figures which any leader wants to hear. The truth is, people want to give their best but, for a variety of reasons, they are held back from doing so.
- For many, their time is spent being distracted and unable to engage.
- Some simply don’t have the tools to do the job – either in terms of training or equipment
- But by far the greatest barrier for most is their own minds.
Neither you, nor they, are fulfilled by this state of affairs. So how do we change the game and unlock the true potential of our people?
Backed with extensive research and experience in unlocking human potential.
Audiences will uncover the hidden power we all have to overcome obstacles, face our fears and to thrive in the modern workplace. He will show how to inspire people by who they are, what they do and how they are aligned to the vision of the organisation. In doing so, they can tap into their personal energy and creativity every day.
You do the maths. If you could get 30% extra from 70% of your people, what would that do for your business?
Making Wellness Work – Building Resilience In Challenging Times
Do you ever wish you were unbreakable? That when life’s challenges came along – both physical and mental – you could carry on without pain or suffering.
Sounds good, yes? The problem is, that without struggle, there is no challenge and, without challenge, there is no achievement.
In this talk Pete explains what it means to be anti-fragile – to be able to face every adversity in life and to learn and grow stronger without breaking.
He will share how to develop a mind-set known as psychological flexibility—a powerful mental state that enables you to respond effectively to fear, anxiety, and self-doubt.
You’ll also learn to develop genuine resilience that you can apply to take your performance and your well being to another level.
Innovation From The Inside Out
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 you become more aware of what is pulling on their energy and drawing them away from what is important.
