"As an executive and business coach , I have always been impressed by Peter’s passionate determination to succeed in business and, importantly, to put into practice agreed actions arising from our meetings – a quality often found wanting in new business people.

Peter has shown courage in going into a business based on an “outside the square” - but very important - principle of personal development benefits to work productivity, gained from passionate leisure interests.  He has worked hard to articulate these benefits in ways that business minds can respond to positively.

As you work with Peter, you will quickly appreciate his energy and determination to go the extra mile in helping you or your staff grow and develop in business or personal life.

I am delighted to be asked to put a testimonial together for Peter and if you need anything further, please do not hesitate to call me on 0415 418 645"  Richard Levy, Business Behaviourist, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

"Peter Nicholls' insightful production, "Making Life Work for You", has an amazing depth of wisdom and compassion for people and our culture. With the succinct efficiency of a talented entreprenuer in the buisness realm, Nicholls couples his awareness with the principles of success. Wrapped in the style reminiscent of Peck's The Road Less Traveled, it's a delightfully easy read while tackling a meaty subject."  Becky Reed USA

"Having reflected on the articles you have published, I found myself able to reflect on my own life journey. As I work towards my lifelong ambition of running my own business of writing personal poems for others, I have discovered that the key to my success lies, not just in what I write but, first and foremost, in believing in myself.  Thank-you for helping me on my journey of self-discovery."

Website Testimonials

Genuine testimonials last a lifetime and I am extremely grateful for every one of the humbling messages sent to me by clients.  But some of them are now a bit long in the tooth. Frankly some of the best testimonials I have aren't written here. They appear as comments below articles and position statements I have published elsewhere on this website.  For example, see:
