Welcome to the John Peters website

Picture of John PetersJohn Peters knows about dealing with uncertainty, change and performing under pressure. Many will remember John from the 1991 Gulf War when, as a Prisoner of War, the enduring, iconic image of his battered and bruised face was paraded on television by Saddam Hussein’s brutal regime. It is his insight and ability to relate this to everyday challenges that keeps him a unique, contemporary speaker that is in constant demand and why so many are eager to hear him speak.

With over 15 successful years on the public speaking circuit, John has gained an international reputation as an exceptional and versatile speaker with audiences worldwide ranging from 5 to 5500 people, from corporations to charities, from Royalty and Heads of State to schools. Of note, he was the sole reader representing the British Armed Forces at the National Gulf Memorial Service, in front of Her Majesty, The Queen, presented the Sir James Martin Lecture at the Royal Aeronautical Society in the presence of Prince Philip, and has followed Mr Nelson Mandela on stage in South Africa for which he gained a standing ovation!

Concurrently, John has over a decade’s experience in business consulting developing senior business leaders with a particular focus on leadership, resilience, uncertainty, motivation, strategy and change. These unique attributes allow John to seamlessly tailor a speech to whatever the client’s requirements may be and thereby supply the perfect address for any event. His insights generate actions; these actions inspire performance.

At the extreme you discover your own humanity. There is a tranquility and honesty in this reflection. Calmly you accept where you are, accept your weaknesses, and it is in that moment you truly understand yourself. Then you begin to win. No should have, could haves...you start to learn and adapt to whatever challenge. You will always make mistakes, you are human, but you realise that your power rests in the speed at which you learn.
