Booking Information



"Pete spoke at the Building Brands marketing conference in May this year and was absolutely superb. We had around 300 marketing professionals in the room, and Pete had them gripped with a talk on building your brand in the social media age.

Everyone enjoyed it and got lots out of it. Pete's entertaining, funny, but has a fantastic wealth of knowledge and experience, that the conference attendees really benefitted from. I would have absolutely no hesitation, whatsoever, in recommending him to anyone else. Really engaging, interesting and a really good person, on top of his marketing experience and background."

His understanding of the digital space and what this means to companies, agencies and those hoping to work in PR is outstanding. He is an authoritative speaker, but also friendly and very approachable - a highlight of the term."
