Product Creation Magic


Coaches, consultants, speakers, trainers and small-business owners now form the majority of my clients who ask for my help and guidance to write and create and market their very own information products – so they can share more of their authentic messages with more people than they ever reach on a one-to-one basis.

I do this by hold two sets of 3 x 1 day events and 2 x 3-day events each year entitled: Product Creation Goldmine. These lead to my Mentoring programmes – meetings or online based.

As a family man (4 sons), 30 years of business experience on his own account and as a keen golfer - his presentations and audio works are brought to life with true stories of success and failure – designed and delivered to make any listener realise that they too can achieve their goals, be more successful and still – have time to play!

A hallmark of Peter's work is his use of thought-provoking original expressions – expressions that stop people in their mental tracks and have them re-evaluate their beliefs about success.

"If the first 'yes' is the real yes – don't ask for the second yes""

 

"If it's too easy you don't care to try – if it's too hard you don't dare to try!"

 

"In a world where the big things have little difference –

it's the little things that make a big difference"
