Peter Vidmar's Rave Reviews

“I do want to make a special point to acknowledge Peter Vidmar's performance. He was perfect -- genuine, passionate, dynamic and obviously, very skillful. He really drove our key message home perfectly. On a personal note let me also say that I have never (I mean never) worked with a more gracious and sincere speaker as Peter. He not only did a great job fulfilling his speaking obligation, he spent the entire evening with our team at the bowling alley and then stuck around late in the evening talking to everyone in the lobby. And, late in the evening when I was speaking with three managers I sensed someone off to my side -- it was Peter -- he was patiently waiting for me to finish speaking to once again say thank you. Again, I have NEVER met anyone so genuine and gracious as Peter. Thank you! We will use him again.” -Hilton Hotels

“Peter's program far exceeded my expectations! He was able to connect with my extended leadership team in a way that riveted their attention for his entire presentation. My team is still talking about the impact Peter had on them as individuals, and also on how they can use his message to further motivate their teams, which was one of the major objectives of our meeting. They were amazed that he is still in "Gold Medal" physical shape to be able to perform the Olympic skills he demonstrates during his presentation. I also appreciated Peter's willingness to take questions from the group, to personally autograph a copy of his book for everyone, and to have his photo taken with any one who asked. His warmth and genuine connection with everyone made a lasting impression on all in attendance.” - PriCara

"Thank you for being so approachable and easy to work with. Your presentation exceeded our expectations. I can't think of anything that you could do to improve it. You were very good at bringing the audience up, taking them down, and adding humor to make your points. They loved it. The overall reaction to your program has been extremely positive and your presentation rated the highest on our survey. You also did an outstanding job of tailoring your approach to the message of the conference and our particular audience.” - Bekins Van Lines

“Working with Peter was fantastic. He took the time to prepare for the presentation, whether it was participating on a conference call with our team, to arriving ahead of time to meet people in the business and understand how it works. His presentation was extremely well received and he made himself available to meet and greet afterwards. Everything went perfectly!” - GE Consumer Finance

Peter was brilliant!!!! All of the feedback was really positive and our CEO was really impressed by him. The topics he talked about were a perfect complement to the discussions that we had been having during the conference. Everyone that has commented has spoken about how "on point" he was with his messages, with the right mix of fun and self deprecation.” - Beijing Olympics Sponsorship, BHP Billiton
