Overcoming stuttering, and being quiet and having a hard time communicating.
These are challenges that Peter overcame. He read books, however he said it didn’t give him feedback so he went on to groups and one on one coaching.
Peter said the better he could present, the faster his company grew.
Peter speaks to simplifying so that people could relate.
“Back in the day” in the 60’s Peter shared the story about his teacher in room 102. She said “stand there and repeat after me”. At 9 years old he had tears and yet he pushed through it. Although he says today there may be different ways to deal with it, he admits that it may have helped.
This is really compelling. We may think we have challenges, however this story is amazing. Peter learned to overcome these challenges with a positive attitude and the ability to be compassionate with others who may have other “limitations”. Peter says it’s not what he talks about, however the odd time he is asked to include his challenges in his speeches and he agrees that he does have people come up and speak to him about how he inspired them.
Beautiful story about his father who was a firefighter who passed at the age of 30. He says he can’t help people like his Dad did, however he can in a different way. To hear more about this beautiful story, please listen to this Podcast.
Peter says “If you don’t prep, you lose them” and “public speaking is a three legged stool; it’s the message, the voice and the body language, and you drop any one of those and the message itself takes a hit”. He says it doesn’t destroy it, even if you can carry it through.
