Client Feedback

Peter Hillary’s presentation was one of the most polished and interesting I have ever witnessed here.  He could be a stand-up comic; his dry wit, delivery and tales make him a great presenter.”  Susan Norton, Director of National Geographic Museum, Explorers Hall 


Words won’t event come close to expressing how deeply you touched the lives of 155 people at our company kickoff.  You so eloquently intertwined humor into the tales of your expeditions, and your descriptions made us feel as though we were right there with you.  From all of us at Top Layer Networks, we are immensely grateful that you were able and willing to fly around the world to speak to us.   We will not soon forget your words of wisdom and amazing experiences:”  Michelle Neddo, Top Layer Networks, USA 

“Working with Peter on this event was certainly a great pleasure because he is so gracious and cooperative.  He went way above and beyond by personally autographing the 500 atlases we presented to our customers.  The more than 500 guests at the Lucent “Reach for the Stars: Customer event in the Fernbank Museum in Atlanta on June 7, 1999 enjoyed the exciting account of Peter’s adventures and the photos that he showed. He actually delivered the presentation twice because the theater could not accommodate in one sitting all of the attendees who were very anxious to see and hear Peter.  The feedback following the conference indicated that Peter’s presentation was one of the highlights.  His name came up very frequently in the list of “Things I like best.”  We would certainly consider him for any other speaking oppo9rtunity that may come up in the future.”Joan Bar-Zeev, Lucent Technologies 

“From beginning to end, Peter’s talk and interaction with our audience was wonderful.  He was without question one of the two best speakers we have ever had the pleasure of hosting during the sixteen years our Society has been meeting – the other being Peter’s father – Sir Edmund Hillary.”Morton H. Sigel, Chairman, Worcester Foundation, USA

Peter Hillary is an extraordinary person and a delight for anyone to meet.  I cannot imagine any setting where he wouldn’t be the talk of the group for years to come.  He appeals to all age groups and backgrounds.  He is a gentleman and a humanitarian – along with being an extraordinary explorer.  Peter Hillary is the real thing”.Dr Thoru Pederson, Director, Worcester Foundation for Biomedical Research, Massachusetts 

The focus of the weekend was on leadership and Peter captured that beautifully.  He really connected with the group, which clearly demonstrates what a great communicator he is.  He combined all the right elements – motivation, aspiration, leadership, boldness and bravery – as well as being highly entertaining and down to earth.  I can’t thank him enough for helping to make the weekend such an outstanding success.  Qantas

Thank you so much for the excellent speech and your generosity of time and spirit.  I have had strong positive feedback from all of our key constituents at the convention.  You were a wonderful success for us.  Please let me know if we can ever serve as a reference or provide other groups with reports of the fantastic job you did for us.  Thank you again.”  Scott Jordan, International Golden Key Honor Society 


I wanted to thank you personally for speaking at our 3rd Annual Fuel Cell Conference last week in Cooperstown, New York.  The strong personal examples that you highlighted during your presentation were not only inspiring, but gave us valuable metaphors which we referred to during the balance of the conference”.Roger Saillant, CEO Plug Power
