"For the last few years, News Corporation America has been engaging Peter Sheahan to transform the way its leaders think about their business, and the talent within it. From the creatives in the editing rooms of LA, to the Chairman himself in New York, Peter has had a profound impact on this company. There is no shortage of people who can entertain an audience. There is also no shortage of academics, conducting insightful research. It is very rare, however, to find someone who is engaging on the platform and whose work is clearly based on groundbreaking research and genuine insight into what makes a business and its leaders successful in today's uncertain marketplace. Peter Sheahan is one of those people... I have no hesitation recommending Peter to any organization looking to drive innovation deeper in their company, and wanting to inspire their leaders to think differently and take the necessary risk to future-proof the business." - News Corporation
“Peter wowed our audience and received glowing feedback in our post-event surveys. He went above and beyond and connected with the group in way that's going to be hard for anyone to follow. As one attendee put it, 'Are there no other ratings ABOVE excellent??’ This was the best and most riveting speaker we have seen in awhile. He is a genius and can relate to our business, as well as any other. I give him a rating of 15 on a scale of 1-10!'" - Prudential Real Estate & Relocation Services
"Peter has worked with some of our most senior leaders, almost all of our North American distribution partners and some of our most edgy businesses such as Webex too. Peter understands not only the forces of change in the modern business landscape, but the mindset the leader needs to adapt to future proof themselves against that change. His sessions are content rich, extremely thought provoking and inspiring all at the same time." - Cisco Systems, Inc.
"Peter, you amaze me. Your ability and willingness to customize material that resonates with audiences and reinforces brand goals is incredible. As the executive producer of countless conferences for owners, general managers and directors of sales for the Hilton portfolio of brands, I’ve hired speakers that range from ex-presidents to mountain climbers to Nobel Laureate economists. You deliver more bang for the buck than all of them! Your performance for my client last week was right on target, and the material was 90 per cent new from the material you used with another of my clients just ten months ago. Thanks for always helping me look good and deliver results for my clients!" - Counterpoint, Inc

He has a clear understanding of what drives human behavior, and always offers a thoroughly researched perspective on your main competitors, and where you are positioned in the mind of the people you want to attract and retain. Whether it is strategic guidance, or creative stimulation, Peter Sheahan is a powerful partner on your journey to building a powerful employer brand." - Pizza Hut
"Peter Sheahan is one of the few speakers we have had who can match the sharp minds of the highly intelligent people we have at Shopzilla, and also deliver an inspiring and insightful message with a clear application to our business and company culture. Well researched and highly engaging, his session with our senior leaders not only opened their eyes to the opportunity presented by the changing nature of the workforce, but opened their minds to new ways we can drive collaboration and innovation in the business. Our team’s response was unanimous – we want him back!" - Shopzilla
