“I have had the pleasure of working with Peter George to continue to develop my public speaking skills. As the President and Chief Operating Officer for a Rhode Island-based company, I am often called upon to speak on a variety of topics to audiences of an array of sizes. I decided to take Peter’s Public Speaking Master Course to refine my presentation abilities.

 

Three aspects of Peter’s work were especially remarkable to me. First, Peter has a clarity of communication that makes it easy to develop as a speaker. The objectives he identifies, the techniques he employs, and the targeted feedback he provides all reflect an underlying straightforwardness. His goal is not to make you a salesman on the stage. Instead, he emphasizes the central importance of the audience, and of the critical role practice plays in solidifying your speaking skills.

 

Second, Peter understands the importance of building confidence in your own message, presence, and on-stage personality. As a result of his approach, I learned to trust my own instincts. I know that I can continue to turn to Peter as a resource to support me in future challenges, as well.

 

Finally, Peter has the right set of characteristics that make him an excellent coach. He is humble, easy to relate to, and understands what it is like to make a presentation for the first time or 100th time. His candor and honesty can help anyone advance their presentation and speaking skills.”

public speaking testimonials

“Before meeting with Peter, I had some speaking experience/knowledge and I was fairly confident speaking in front of larger audiences. However, after working with him, I quickly learned that there was so much I didn’t even realize I could improve on — things like body language, voice inflections, pausing, and more! I’ve also learned how to powerfully master the opening and closing of a presentation — the most important parts! Peter has given me the tools and confidence I need to connect with and deliver my message to any size audience. Now I can’t wait for every chance to get out on a stage and share!”

public speaking testimonials

“Peter’s ability to connect with his clients on a personal and empathic level changes what might be thought of as a dreary task into a friendly collaboration with a skilled professional — and everyone benefits in the end. As a public speaking coach, his extensive experience, acuity and perception allow him to see things you may have never considered, which makes for a markedly improved delivery of your key ideas. Peter’s anecdotal and engaging teaching style is well-suited to subtly imparting key bits of wisdom and professional insight that he’s garnered over the years. For those looking to refine your message, voice and body language, and in doing so, better captivate and influence your audience, I highly recommend that you retain Peter’s services.”

“Writing a recommendation for Peter is difficult, as there are so many great things that I want to say. I have worked with Peter in a variety of different situations and always walk away a better person than I was when the process started. Peter has a gift for seeing things with a completely different lens. He may not always tell you what you want to hear; but he will always tell you what you need to hear. Peter has the ability to coach you without making you feel any less confident in your own abilities. He gives support but also pushes you to reach beyond your comfort zone in order to truly get to the root of the issue.”

“When it comes to storytelling, Peter captures your full attention. Recently, I had the privilege of listening to his presentation … twice! The second time around, it was just as good as the first. Instantly, after he expressed a few words with poise and a seemingly-extemporaneous delivery, my mind prepared for an outstanding speech. The talk was so uplifting and positive that I was truly grateful for his time and effort. Peter is an excellent speaker with amazing stories, keeping me captivated throughout each presentation. If you want an amazing and inspirational speaker, I highly recommend hiring Peter.”

eric-daddario

“I used to think that presenting to groups meant talking about what you know, for whatever time you were allotted. However, Peter taught me that there is much more to being a persuasive public speaker. During our coaching sessions, I learned the most effective ways to develop presentations. I learned the importance of body language, including how to convey confidence, move with purpose, and gesture with impact. I discovered how to use voice inflection, including the proper implementation of rhythm, pitch, and pauses. Through his coaching, Peter has provided me with the tools I need to be not just a competent speaker but an extraordinary one. I am now able to engage my audiences from the time I walk on stage until I deliver a compelling conclusion. Whether you are looking to improve your skills for presentations in the boardroom, talks at conferences, or just want to be more confident in your public speaking abilities, I highly recommend that you work with Peter. Put your success in his hands, and you won’t be disappointed.”
