“Peter van Kets is not only a magnificent athlete and champion; he is fun to listen to and to chat to; he is motivating and when hearing the ease with which he takes decisions in extreme conditions, it makes our personal challenges look much smaller. His speech is well prepared and complete and well documented. I am sure we will have him again at one of our functions. Until then, we wish him well in his preparation and adventure to the South Pole. Most of all, we wish him health and love and happiness with his family and friends.”

“What a truly remarkable and inspirational person Peter is, we thoroughly enjoyed his presentation – Our leadership really enjoyed his enthusiastic, thought-provoking discussion… More importantly, however, is the fact that everyone was still talking about his courage and tenacity the following day… we’ve had many guest speakers in the past, but the group agreed he is one of the very best!”
Pete’s presentation of his life experiences is inspiring, moving and extremely motivational. His ability to link his secret of success and apply it to the business world and your own life is realistic and apt. One realizes that no matter what, the mind is not only exceptional but in most cases an untapped resource with unlimited potential. You just need to realize this!”
There is something so good about Peter van Kets and his presentation…so very good for the inside of his audience. You’re left with an elation and celebration bubbling up from deep down inside of you.

I have used Pete extensively in strategic facilitation as the opening presentation to events. His presentation and his story of overcoming the most incredible adversity fits perfectly into any break away, conference or strategic facilitation. If you haven’t used Peter yet, you’re missing out. Please feel free to contact me for any further information on this amazing presenter!

He is an amazing and gifted speaker – he had my absolute attention for the full presentation. Not once during his entire presentation did I think of anything else.
TIMOTHY D. NOAKES
PROFESSOR OF EXERCISE & SPORTS SCIENCE - SPORTS SCIENCE INSTITUTE OF SOUTH AFRICA
Peter van Kets is special and so is his presentation. It reveals the unimaginable extent of the emotional and physical demands that some exceptional humans are prepared to endure in pursuit of a goal they consider sufficiently important. He shows that his success is based on his belief that he would win, expressed even before he began; his understanding that the mind is the barrier that must be overcome since it quits long before the body reaches its limits.
His lecture uses a modern adventure of epic proportion to teach human and business lessons that are timeless.

I highly rate Peter as a public speaker. He comes across very well- most sincerely and with tons of passion and charisma. His story is an epic one and he holds the audience in the palm of his hand.

MANAGER BUSINESS BANKING - NEDBANK
We had the very fortunate opportunity to have Peter share with us and our clients his experiences and valuable life lessons he gained in his recent solo row across the Atlantic Ocean. It was a truly powerful and inspiring presentation that sparked a flood of positive feedback from our clients who received a tremendous amount of value from the talk, taking lessons and principles back with them that can be applied in both their personal lives and business environment. We will certainly be challenged in future client appreciation events to have our clients as captivated as they were at this event.
