Peter Thurin was simply outstanding. Genuinely on brief, passionate with clear messages and energy to burn. He thoroughly engaged the participants as both a key note speaker and MC throughout the three day conference and gala awards. Peter is a true professional and absolutely comes with my highest recommendation. We have confirmed Peter’s involvement again next year and look forward to his continued contribution to the success of the business and conference.” Super Liquor Holdings Ltd
