"Peter Sheahan could light a small town with energy, enthusiasm and insight. He combines deep practical knowledge with unending passion for both his subject matter and his audience. In my 10+ years of speaking with executive-level audiences, I find Peter to be unsurpassed in his ability to engage senior executives.
Peter can draw out of your people answers to questions they did not know they had. That, and even more powerfully, he will have them question the very answers they come up with in a way that reveals an even deeper level of insight and understanding. Whether he is presenting or facilitating, Peter is clearly world class educator."

Brilliant. We will have you working with BP again soon. "

"Thank you for your thought provoking presentation at Google's HQ in Mountain View in December. You bring terrific energy to the Gen Y topic. A number of Google staffers reached out to say how much they enjoyed your thought/discussion provoking presentation.
The College team in particular will surely find real world applications for the Gen Y data you provided. You gave us great insight into the minds of literally hundreds of potential Googlers. For us to better understand how to motivate and develop that talent will certainly be key to our continued success."

"I have been a senior hospital, health system and healthcare industry exec for three decades. Every once in a while I come across an author or speaker who seems to provide transferable business concepts that are fresh and applicable to my role as a leader. Mr. Sheahan’s writings fit that description. I have used his concepts in my organization and I highly recommend him. I have been distributing his book to my friends. His presentation received very positive reviews. His personal energy, content and thought provoking style were all very attractive. I highly recommend Peter Sheahan. I am impressed with his grasp of key business issues and the freshness of his thinking on embracing change."
