“It was a pleasure to attend Pete's workshop (through the British Library) on marketing opportunities. His ability to share information applicable to a wide variety of industries is impressive, and I really valued the way he answered specific questions knowledgeably and with clarity. Highly recommend!"
“I had met Pete at a Workshop he was presenting and I immediately liked his charisma and how he explained things. It was 2 years ago!! Since, he is been my business coach, and meeting him every months at the British Library is pure joy. He’s ALWAYS positive, full of energy, and always helps me to sort out an issue I have with building my business. And he knows so many people and stories!! Love it, Love him!!”
