    ‘In a refreshing linkage of physical and classroom style he demonstrates the power of positive attitude. Peter is a terrific storyteller, he delivers anecdotes from his personal experience in a most professional and amusing manner. The process he employs builds through several stages, culminating in an explosion of group energy unlike anything I have witnessed before.’

  • Peter did a magnificent job at our recent sales and marketing conference in the Barossa Valley.

    Most people probably think that keynote speakers have one stock standard presentation that conference organisers need to match to their theme. Well they don’t know what Peter Thurin does before he does his thing.

    We drew great confidence from several interactions we had with Peter prior to his session. His presentation was at the end of an action packed three days and we were looking for Peter to pull all the themes we had threaded through the conference and weave them into an action plan.

    His work ethic and determination to ensure he delivered exactly what we were looking for was magnificent, as was the product he delivered. Full of energy and humour, he nailed all our key messages and challenged everyone in the room to make the changes necessary for them to take our business forward.

    The feedback from the delegates has been extremely positive. As someone who has previously been motivated by Peter to take those first steps to change my ways, I look forward to seeing the transformational change we are seeking in this business gather momentum over the next few weeks.”

  • What can I say about Peter Thurin – what a genuinely passionate, energetic, charismatic human being! He filled the room with enthusiasm, the audience hung on every word and he struck a chord with delegates and business partners alike.

    I could go on forever but you can see that he has had a huge effect on all present (including me).”
