On behalf of the Tri State leadership team at Cisco, I wanted to thank you for the leadership workshop you moderated for us yesterday. I pulsed the team and some verbatims are below:

-Best session in my career at Cisco
-Could have listened to him for hours
-Riveting
-Awesome, best Cisco meeting I have been a part of
-Provocative

Much more, including a number of your insights and how they impacted each leader as they reflected on their own leadership style. Technology change in the marketplace, fierce competition and escalating customer demands put leadership front and center to Cisco’s success – more so than ever. You really helped us up our game. Thanks again!

Pete Strickland's leadership training program that he did for our Southern Athletic Association (SAA) Student Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) may have been the best program I've done for our student-athletes since I've been Commissioner. Pete has a dynamic personality, and his accessible style connected with our student leaders IMMEDIATELY. Pete is a warm individual with a great sense of humor, and our student-athletes were completely intrigued by his presentation. I would highly recommend Pete for any leadership training or A-N-Y training regarding student-athletes in A-N-Y way.

It is my great pleasure to recommend Pete Strickland to any organization looking to engage a motivational or educational speaker

I have had the good fortune to know Pete as a Head Coach at Coastal Carolina and Assistant Coach at NC State. Not too long ago, i had the need to employ a speaker for a sales meeting. Pete was engaged to conduct the sales meeting as a coach preparing to lead his team to victory. For over an hour, Pete kept my sales team on the edge of their seats or sitting back in belly laughs as he imparted his wisdom, humor and experiences in sports. I believe my team learned a great deal about leadership, teamwork, and the value of communication.

On my conference room wall hangs a plaque given to me by my Sales Manager which is a quote from Pete's presentation and it has become one of my favorites. "It's important your team knows what you stand for and equally important that they know what you will not stand for".

I had the great fortune to meet Pete while I was Commanding Officer at the Navy Operational Support Center (NOSC) in Raleigh, NC, when he was an Assistant Coach at N.C. State. I found Pete to be a highly engaging and motivating personality, and I asked him to speak to our Support Center personnel during one of our drill weekends. The response of our over 400 Center personnel from 17 different Reserve Units was outstanding and met with such high praise that my Department Heads requested that he speak a second time! And his second presentation was more riveting than his first! Pete’s messages of teamwork, leadership, dedication, positive attitude, communication, commitment, and integrity were delivered in an entertaining manner that kept everyone engaged. His humor and compelling stories made his presentation - without a doubt - the best in my 2+ years as the Commanding Officer of NOSC Raleigh. Pete’s message resonates for athletic teams, military units, and companies of all types that want to perform at their highest possible level, and he delivers his message in an entertaining and thought-provoking way that keeps his audience on the edge of their seats wanting more! I highly recommend Pete Strickland if you want to make a positive difference for your team or company!
