Peter, I am writing this email to let you know that your sessions are indeed awesome and life changing although we usually don't take the time to express it. The very first time I attended your session, you talked about public speaking. You told us to believe in our stories and share them with confidence. That single message resonated with me so much that I made it a point to keep attending your sessions.
Greetings Peter I am not sure you are aware of how much impact your training is having in the world. I came to your sessions as a person who sought to empower people to be the best they can and to enjoy success in their life. You empowered me at your sessions to in turn, empower others you may personally never reach. And this is the value you bring to the world through the people who attend your trainings. I am a Ghanaian who has organized various events in my country to empower people exercising some of the amazing things you share in your sessions. I just want you to know that you have gone beyond borders by what you teach. I share this with you to appreciate you for your work and to encourage you to keep on making a huge difference in our world from your trainings.Thank you for all you teach. Best regards

I have known Peter for a couple of years now, and he has been a great influence. I started going to his in-person Venture cafe public speaking workshops, and they really helped me with: 1. Making a powerful and impactful minute-long pitch; 2. Become more comfortable speaking publicly and actually enjoying it; 3. Implementing this public speaking skill into everyday life, and making me more comfortable with connecting with like minded people and generating an income from the clients I keep getting for my coaching business.
I reached out to Peter after hearing him speak at a virtual event on a community platform. In this talk, he spoke with confidence, passion and easily captured his audience's attention. These were the exact skills I was looking to build in order to tell my story as I entered a transition phase into a new career. After just a few sessions, I noticed my ability to speak in a clear and concise manner, to connect with my audience, had drastically changed. Working with Peter helped me take the next step in my journey. Peter, thank you for your support,advise and guidance!
Hi Peter, Thank you for your help and support on my pitching journey. I have worked with Peter Cummings the Pitch Man for six sessions, on improving my pitch performance. Peter gave many helpful suggestions and tips on the pitch storyline, word choices, delivering posture and vocals. Working with Peter, the most helpful thing would be that from the sessions I grew a solid understanding of different pitching goals and confidence.I went on to win a number of "pitch competitions and could not have done it without him. A great coach and listener. I have told many of my friends about Peter, and my improvement on my pitch performance. Best regards,
Recently, I had the opportunity to attend a public speaking workshop given by Peter Cummings. Public speaking has always been a weak point for me, but Peter presented practical tools and strategies to gain the audience's attention and get my message across. Peter reinforced those ideas by example, by keeping us engaged with lots of stories and interaction. I'm sure that by using even just a few of the concepts that Peter shared with us, anyone's presentations can become much more effective
Working with Peter on my ViewN seed funding pitch changed the way I approached public speaking. He taught me the how and why of the audience's response so as I pitch I can connect more naturally. I believe that my pitch after the coaching reflects polish, practice, and poise.
