Testimonials from Speaking Engagements conducted by Peter Gilchrist and RTI Australia.
I am writing regarding your involvement with our National Directors Conference in Dunedin in November last year.
Our New Zealand network holds a national meeting once a year which involves a level of external presenters on a variety of topics. There were about 30 attendees at this meeting from throughout New Zealand and all were practising Chartered Accountants in public practice.
Your motivational speech was very well received by the delegates. Refreshingly you addressed us in an easy conversational style that quickly made the session interactive that added significantly to the benefit we received. Your common sense and down to earth approach, supported by easily understood graphics, reinforced to us the steps we need to take to gain growth for our group and brand. There were also some new twists that we could take away and consider.
The feedback to our firm, as conference organisers, on your session was very complimentary. So much so that I expect we will invite you to address a much larger annual conference we have that includes all of our teams in the future.
It was also very pleasant not to be head banged into guilt by the evangelistic so called motivational ‘prophets’ that invariably invade the conference circuit.
We as a group have no hesitation in recommending your skills to other potential meeting organisers.
Kind Regards, David Russell, Director, Markhams Clarke Craw Limited.
“Peter Gilchrist has been involved with Loan Market for the past 18 months at different levels. He has conducted personal coaching (1 on 1), corporate team training (20-25 people) and group training (100-250 people) for our group in this time. He is a wonderful, inspirational speaker, whose message is applicable to all levels of the business. His approach is collaborative, enthusiastic and “real”. He recently presented to 250 mortgage brokers at our annual conference, and it was widely selected as the best session of the conference, from delegate collected feedback.
Probably the biggest endorsement for Peter was his working with our Elite sales people. He has done group sessions with the Elite, as well as personally coaching several of them over the past 12 months. These are a very difficult group to impress. Everyone who has been involved with Peter has improved their business, and are raving fans of Peter and his approach to sales coaching.
On a personal note, Peter has given me some of the best lessons of my management career, and has been a key contributor to our business prospering in a tough market. I highly recommend Peter’s message to anyone, but it’s Peter’s personal delivery of it that really makes one sit up and take notice.”
Kind Regards, Andrew White, STATE MANAGER QLD.
I attended REAL 2012 last Friday and I just wanted to say thank you. You were amazing. Both of my parents are real estate agents and they have been to a few of your seminars and always said you were fantastic but I really was blown away by you. Your energy, practicality, humor, wit and versatility about what you had to say. Your advice and the skills you were teaching are so relevant to all industries (not just real estate) and to every part of life.
So again thanks, I walked away for Friday with a lot more motivation and clarity about how to move on wards and up wards not only in my career but also in my personal life. I hope that one day we at APN can organize to have you come and spend a full day with us as I believe we would all benefit greatly from your wisdom and humor.
Nicki Venaglia, Sunshine Coast Newspaper Company.
“Solid advice – good measured delivery and strong influence.”
“Thanks for expanding the playing field of possibility and changing up the accepted status quo.”
“Brilliant, engaged the entire time and some great strategies that have meaning. Exceptional – I think you’d work well in Macquarie!!”
Peter Gilchrist has been a very effective presenter to our people in Ray White and Loan Market. Peter’s message is very effective by challenging the belief and prejudices that can restrict performance.
Sam White, Executive Chairman, Ray White.
I have used Peter’s services for over 15 years and have grown from a fledgling company to market leader in our area. Peters coaching enables you to cut through the bullshit and achieve great results in any market.

I have been involved in Real Estate now for 23 years owning and running a successful real estate business for the past 8 years. I felt I was always doing well but knew there were ways I could always do it better! Meeting Peter was inspirational and he has definitely kept me on track! He is a no nonsense man, he says it as it is and whilst he is not teaching us anything that we don’t already know, his commitment in ensuring you get it is what makes him so effective. In an ever changing world, Peter strives to stay always one step ahead. Anyone who encounters time with Peter will definitely get a feeling of fulfilment and achievement.
Kind Regards, Nichole Jones, Principal/Licensed Real Estate Agent.
Peter has removed the clouds from business and the way forward is now clear. His experience, network, approach and personal nature means nothing is too hard…he is an easy shoulder to lean on and strong where necessary. As a business owner stuck in the daily grind, Peters independent eye and strong view on the property industry has assisted my growth personally and professionally faster than I would have achieved with his input. Peter coaching style is user friendly, very approachable and value adds my offices and team daily. A tough industry needs strong managers…and coaches…Peter is a large part of our strength.
