Put bluntly, Peter is an inspiration to everyone. He is a wonderful example of someone who has achieved many great things in his life because he has a personality that combines sheer determination with an engaging and charming character. He challenges our interpretation of disability and offers a lesson to one and all – whether disabled or not - about what we are all capable of achieving in our lives and that few things are real obstacles to our goals.

Peter attended our Annual Forum in March 17 and was truly inspirational in his recollections of his achievements as a Paralympian. Our theme for the day was ‘thinking differently’ and Peter certainly gave us all plenty of scope for thinking about things in a different way. I have received many positive comments about his presentation from my colleagues. Peter is friendly, engaging and easy to listen to. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a speaker to inspire their team.

Peter’s ‘can do’ attitude and approach to life demonstrated to the team, that no one should make assumptions on behalf of anyone else in life. If we want something enough we should all go after it. Peter is a true inspiration to everyone, reminding everyone of the real importance of exceptional team work and what going the extra mile achieves for the customer.
Peter’s contribution to the event was priceless; he added texture and understanding, showing the audience, that together we can all make a difference.

As a speaker at our charity event, Peter was inspirational and fascinating as he took us through the highs and lows of his life as a professional athlete with a disability. His humorous delivery and engaging story kept our audience enthralled. Highly recommended.

Peter’s inspiring talk at the Eastleigh Sports Awards was incredibly engaging, motivational and so well received by all members of the audience. Peter has a natural style of delivery and was able to capture everyone’s attention and interest through the stories about his sporting and personal journeys. Peter has a kind manner and is incredibly humble which keeps people interested for the entire presentation. He left an audience of sports stars of the future inspired and encouraged to work that little bit harder in order to be the best they can be.
