Modern leaders need to care about emotional intelligence. Simply defined, emotional intelligence is the ability to manage your emotions instead of letting your emotions manage you.

Research has shown that this skill is a far better indicator of success than the traditional IQ measurement. Understanding and using the techniques of emotional intelligence is crucial for good relationships in both your business and personal life.

    Pete has a lively and enthusiastic way of capturing the interest and attention of listeners, particularly in a medium to large group setting. By his very heartfelt and pragmatic approach, Pete has the ability to equip his audience with the necessary skills to build their own self confidence.

    Bernie the radio broadcaster says...

    I have listened to Peter Watson speak publicly on many occasions. He has a genuine and rare ability to communicate complex issues in a clear, simple and engaging manner. He is also a keen observer of people and has a strong interest in management and business principles. Whilst he may at first appear unassuming, his communication and teaching style is remarkably clear and effective. He is one of the very few people that I know with this gift.  
    Bernie Dymet, CEO and radio broadcaster with the media ministry 'Christianityworks' 

    Matthew from Facebook says...

    Peter has the rare gift of being able to condense and communicate a range of complicated ideas in a concise and engaging manner. I would recommend him to anyone who needs their training to have impact, both on the day and months later.
