With a wide variety of adventures under his belt, Pete Goss talks positively and with passion about leading teams through exciting, but often complex, difficult and dangerous situations. A natural communicator with a dynamic but informal style, Pete never ceases to amuse, entertain and inform with his presentations.
At the height of the Team Philips project, Pete headed-up a workforce of more than 100 employees, brokered multi-million pound sponsorship deals and assisted in the creation of several new companies in fields as diverse as new media, engineering, education and boat-building. Handling these complex and often conflicting pressures whilst all the while being under the media spotlight, gave Pete a unique insight into the challenges that face every organisation.
Equally at home battling the elements alone or leading a business team from the front, Pete draws from these experiences to offer management talks, team-building exercises and training sessions that will not only challenge individuals and groups, but inspire them to achieve beyond what they thought possible.
As Pete says: “I have been fortunate to have been brought up on a diet of adventure and privileged to take part in number of challenges. My training in the Royal Marines taught me to be professional at all times, even in dangerous and frightening circumstances. But fear can be dispelled by knowledge and preparation. I truly enjoy helping other people realise their full potential and tailor my talks and training to suit the needs of the audience.”
"If you need a team to be re-energised or inspired, this is your man. Pete delivered his talk to an audience of project and IT staff who had been grinding through exhausting and seemingly endless delivery for the past eighteen months, and who were hugely tired and dispirited as a consequence. At the end of the session all were awestruck and uplifted by the sheer magnitude of Pete's team's accomplishments and attitude. We have never had feedback like this before : - everyone felt personally connected to Pete's challenges and totally inspired by him. He was the centre of discussion for the remainder of the evening. What an amazing man. What a remarkable ability to connect at such a profound level with people in the audience. We would have him back tomorrow without a second's reservation."

"Pete was simply one of the most inspirational speakers we’ve ever had, and his messages about the importance of teamwork and innovation were very relevant for our business. He’s a great story teller, and an incredibly humble and likeable guy. The feedback from our event was overwhelmingly positive about him and his message, so I’d strongly recommend him."
