“We just came back from our International Conference, where about 60 representatives from 45 countries participated. This group is an amazing round of fascinating people, however, sometimes it is challenging to make sure that a message arrives as intended. We invited Pete Cohen to this three days event and asked him beforehand to help us with the following tasks:- To assist that attendees focus on a certain topics and really commit- To convert tough tasks into a real mindset, enabling people to truly adapt things at home once they left the conference- To translate very dry topics into a different, entertaining mode. Pete Cohen fulfilled all three tasks with superb skill, added with his great personality a very positive spirit and enhanced the power of the conference substantially. He got frenetic applause at the end and our team and the conference participants were very sure: we will invite Peter Cohen again for our next event. I could recommend his services strongly!”
