I've seen Peter present on a number of occasions - both in a corporate environment and as part of a Networking meet to a room full of SMEs & Family Businesses. Each time he's been tremendously well received and clearly has a wealth of business experience which he can put across extremely effectively - and at a range of levels. 
 
A message from Peter…
 
Thanks for stopping by…
 
I’ve had a long and varied speaking career and have been most fortunate to have won many awards and plaudits for it. But far more importantly it’s enabled me to get the messages across that I believe are fundamental in business today for both individuals and organisations.

Listed below are four of the most popular keynotes (there are many more) that I would be honoured to deliver for your organisation and they all are always tailored to the specific needs of the event and the organisers. The keynotes can be delivered in a variety of formats from a thirty minute keynote to a two hour introductory workshop.

All my speeches and workshops are delivered in a fun, practical and relaxed style with instant take home tools and techniques. To my knowledge no one has been mentally scarred for life listening to what I have to say which is usually done with a smile, a degree of experience and humility. I know I don’t have all the answers, I have never professed to, but I do have something worthwhile for those wishing to learn.

The best thing to do here is for us to have a cuppa together and discuss your requirements to see how I may be able to help you and I can then provide a speaker pack (inclusive of show reel, key benefits, the investment etc.) for you to consider the options of how best to proceed.
 

Here are just some of my Keynotes:

How to Have a Great Family Business - BECAUSE FAMILY BUSINESSES MATTER!

This is a thought provoking and insightful keynote investigating the FIVE KEY AREAS that family business must address to have a well-run organisation, whilst at the same time maintaining great family relationships.

Business today is responding to a different tune, one that family businesses know, like and demonstrate every single day.

Simply put FAMILY BUSINESSES MATTER!

How to Understand the People in your Family Business

In this fun practical and relaxed day I take you through a process that completely changed my family and business life. For me it is essential that every business learns both the process of understanding people and its practical day to day integration into the business.

You will learn a four step process that is well proven and two simple questions to ask yourself when you are with someone that will change your relationship for ever.

Peter came to do a day's workshop on DISC Profiling. The definition of a genuine expert is to make the complicated, simple. He achieved that for us Property Mentors attendees in Newport Pagnell this summer. 

Highly recommended!

When I was first introduced to Peter some four years ago I asked him if I was too old to be a speaker. He replied "See me after the keynote has finished". Since that time Peter has nurtured, encouraged, advised, critiqued and helped me every step of the way. You simply couldn't meet a nicer guy than Peter Roper.
