"Peter McCoppin offered unique perspectives, expert advice and coaching for public speaking and leading others that was refreshing and effective. A strength is his willingness to listen to the individual and bring forward the personality traits in speaking that will be most listened to and recognized as your 'brand'".
Diane Nicholls, RPF
ADM, Chief Forester, Province of British Columbia

"I believe speeches are an art and a reflection of our souls - one always wants to be sure to connect, captivate and compel their audience to action. Peter has a magical way of helping you bring your words to life. If you are committed to raising your own personal bar, I highly recommend you speak with Peter McCoppin."
Karen Radford,
Executive Vice-President of Enbridge Inc.
