What our clients are saying:
"Truly outstanding! A room filled with McDonald’s Managers aging from 18 years of age through to adult sat on the edge of their seats involved in “blackbelt in excellence” for the entire presentation. Peter spoke about Customer Service Basics, which is a keystone for our Business. But he also made them think about being the best you can be and this has challenged many of our managers to take note and know that they can make a difference, but that it starts with them! WOW thank you for the experience, the morning was entertaining, motivating and inspiring!!"
"What can I say? How good are you!! Our meetings before and at the conference not only reassured me of your professionalism but also impressed me greatly about your intuitive ability to understand the messages, which we were trying to deliver to our delegates. And might I say that you delivered those messages in spades! It is difficult to hold the attention of a 300 strong audience for almost an hour but you managed to do that without hearing a pin drop, other than the injection of laughter and applause. I cannot speak too highly of your dynamic and interactive stage presentation “blackbelt in excellence”. I have received nothing but positive feedback from so many of our delegates, some suggesting that the conference generally and your keynote address in particular were the best we have had. Thank you so much Peter for contributing to the success of our conference."
"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)."
"How fortunate we are, to have had the opportunity to work with you over the last two years, and what a difference to our business and culture you have made!
You bring to the table a complete package:
* consistency - we are never allowed to move on and pass over our learning's
* inspiration - you find and provide inspiration from many sources
* purpose - keeping us focused on the ultimate goal - not allowing distractions
* a great deal of shared business knowledge and experience - we are always learning from others
* real passion for what you do - you are an integral part of our team, and
* you care - it says it all!
We are on the way to delivering on our BHAG - because of your contribution to WHK CW - without your direction and guidance - we would be still floundering.
Personally, you have lead me to a higher level of personal development and achievement that I would never have dreamed possible - and I will never be able to thankyou enough.
I have said so many times to colleagues and friends - you get my "head right" - you see through the Mir and babble - and provide me with clarity and direction.
To "be the best you can be" takes a lot of commitment, passion and enthusiasm - and you bring these attributes to life in us.
Thankyou for your past contribution, and looking forward to sharing the successes of the future together."
"Peter was absolutely perfect. In fact, he got a standing ovation from the crowd! It was such a great way to finish our conference everybody left feeling pumped and excited.
Peter was the perfect fit for our audience and an absolute pleasure to work with. He really went all out to include as much Epson information and details in his presentation as possible.
I would not hesitate in recommending Peter to anybody. In fact, I already have!
We would definitely utilise Peter in the future. "
Just a quick email to thank you for a phenomenal session we had with you today at the Sydney Convention Centre.
You are truly an amazing personality and have such power to engage one and all.
Meeting you today was a once in a life time opportunity which I will cherish all my life. I am sure that I will follow the principle of Easy to do...and hopefully make a difference in both my personal and professional life.
I strongly believe that each one of us has the potential to achieve great things in life if we have the right attitude, look at the positives and take small steps towards achieving great things in life.
Thanks once again for giving me a signed copy of your book and the hug I got from you in the end made my day!! I couldn't help sharing my experience today with my wife, she is looking forward to reading your book as soon as I finish it.
I hope our paths cross again and would love to attend your sessions in future.
Thanks & Kind Regards,"
"Our franchises were overwhelmed and energy charged with your interactive and challenging workshop. The experience and the memories that all attending franchises conveyed to me after your “floor show” was nothing short of brilliant and will be held up as one of the highlights of this year’s event. Your uncanny ability to precise all the topics from our extensive event program in a single address was both entertaining and thought provoking. It made them question and rethink the road map required to achieve their personal and professional objectives."
"We have just returned from Sanctuary Cove where we had Peter Thurin on site for different sessions for one of our pharmaceutical clients. And, once again, a triumph! Peter literally brought the house down with "blackbelt in excellence" and I can't recommend him highly enough.
Such was the response to his session, that our debrief with the client will include plans to further his involvement with the group at their mid-year Conference. Talk about hit the nail on the head and know how to get the best from a group! The response was overwhelming enthusiasm and I really believe that he changed a few lives in the room on Wednesday morning.
In addition to achieving a 100% board breaking success rate through a very varied age group, our clients were amazed at Peter's research, preparation and understanding of their business - he delivered EVERY key message and really got through where others have failed.
As I was leaving, the internal conference organiser said: "I will never forget this morning, never, the whole of my life. I feel amazing." Truly, that's a quote! And I think this was a sentiment that would be shared by much of the group.
Suffice it to say, once again, we are ecstatic and so are our clients. Please pass on my grateful thanks to Peter and I look forward to working with him again in the near future."
"Roll over high octane pretenders! This guy is the real deal. He has more staying power than the Duracell Bunny even dreamed of.
He is Australia's answer to Anthony Robbins.
If you want your people to be pumped Peter Thurin is your man.
Without a doubt he is one of the most exciting and dynamic speakers and MC's on the circuit.
He has more than enough personality and pizzaz to fill a stadium of thousands or enough sensitivity, empathy and understanding to connect with one person in an elevator.
Yes, he is larger than life. Yes, he is overflowing with enthusiasm. But, there is so much more depth to Peter Thurin than meets the eye.
I have used Peter successfully many times as a keynote and workshop speaker here and overseas. And, boy is he hard to please. His measure. If he doesn't get standing ovation - he hasn't hit the mark. More standing ovations (without the roses!) than Pavarotti.
As a speaker or MC? Guilt edge guaranteed winner."
"Peter is clearly your ‘not so average’ speaker. He listens intently to your brief, and executes right on target. He uses your conference themes appropriately and takes the time to research.
Spent his own time observing the team in action well prior to the delivery so he knew the culture and how to speak in tune with expectations, whilst being comfortably challenging.
His delivery is very energetic and almost exhausting. I was impressed with his ‘call to action’. His ‘easy to do’ also ‘easy not to do’ is driving us all mad.
He got a standing ovation from an appreciative crowd."
"Mortgage Ezy is renowned for its cutting edge conferences. Integral to these events is the company’s ability to attract the best and brightest speakers available.
Peter was the Key Note Speaker and Master Of Ceremonies for our annual Congress Convention. Right from the first discussions with Peter on the telephone I knew that he would be a fantastic presenter.
His energetic enthusiasm combined with his polished professionalism makes for a sensational session in any event. Our audience left this session with some very practical and applicable tools to create change in their lives.
However, it was the extra care, effort and attention Peter gave to the MC role that really held our event together. What was most striking was the genuine manner with which Peter engaged with the all participants, from our staff to the attendees and other guest speakers.
Nothing was too much trouble, everything was given appropriate attention, and everyone at the event felt his presence as a collaborative and contributing force.
Occasionally one is lucky enough in business to come across someone who exceeds all expectations; Peter is one of these people.
If you are considering using Peter – I suggest that you act quickly as he is going to be a man in demand. "
"'I can guarantee that Peter Thurin through his "blackbelt in excellence" programme will motivate your staff. He has brought together his experience from many years in the pharmacy business with his passion for taekwondo and combines this with the message you want to deliver, to build an action packed two hour session.'
'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.'
'His message is simple and inescapably correct. Your most valuable resource is your people. Their most valuable possession is their relationships with your customers.'
'A truly memorable session. We will be using him again.'"
"Thank you once again for putting together such a wonderful session for the Dan Murphy’s National Conference last week. Your presentation was UNBEATABLE! The research you did to understand the Dan Murphy’s business and its people to the passion you displayed during the whole session was amazing. The whole team was buzzing with inspiration after the session and they can’t stop talking about it."
"Thank-you for your inspiration with this great book ...the sales team are experiencing the best ever results yet as we speak!!!."
