Why You Should Hire Me for your Next Event

  • Ease of understanding; I strive to present minimal jargon by simplifying complex psychological concepts.
  • Cutting edge ideas; I use original content when appropriate, and only focus on presenting ideas and research findings if they have a practical application.
  • Motivating; I love engaging the audience and enjoy telling topic-specific stories to emphasise important themes. If there are a few laughs, all the better.
  • Adaptable; I am easy to work with, calm in a crisis, I adapt my content to the particular audience, and can change topic midway through a presentation if its what the audience wants
  • Long term Impact; I give people tools and techniques that can have a positive impact long after the presentation is finished

Mr Charleston,
thank you so much for facilitating the discussion with our Leadership Group on monday afternoon. From the discussion after, I think that we all gained a lot from it and it has certainly given us some food for thought in areas that we as a group could develop further.

Hi peter, I just wanted to thank you again for your presentation last week. The feedback from the staff was extremely positive (and it is usually a very difficult bunch to please!). In fact I have been repeatedly asked about whether I have received a copy of the overheads as yet. Is it ok to send me a copy that I can distribute?
Thanks again.
