I've been privileged to attend Peter's Family Business Practice events over the last couple of years and they amazing events. Peter's energy is stunning and his dedication to helping family businesses and their owners is without measure.

If you've not had the chance to speak to Peter or attend one of his events then I highly recommend it. Really appreciate everything you do and thank you.

Dave James Coaching

I have had the honour of knowing Peter for a number of years through my Family Business Practice membership. Peter has an infectious passion for supporting business, family businesses, to ensure that their unique features are celebrated and deliver more success.

To ensure they are not seen as 'just a family business'. Peter has turned the invaluable face to face meetings around into 72 minute meetings online, whilst retaining the passion, engagement, and energy in the meetings. I couldn't recommend Peter and the family business enough.

Claire Lawton Acorn HR Support

After attending Peter’s speaking masterclass I now have 4 speaking opportunities.  Previously I would have turned them down – now I’m just excited and keen to get talking! I fully recommend training with Peter for excellent coaching, a safe place to make mistakes, receive feedback and perfecting your technique before giving presentations.

Claire Hill Hill HR Consultancy

I would strongly recommend any member to join this programme, I have learnt some really valuable tips and lessons across a number of different topics including networking, presenting and maximising client relationships…… I look forward to working with Peter more in the future developing me and my business.

“I’d recommend 'the Practice' to people who want to build their business on relationships not sales. When you do this, the sales look after themselves.”
