"Peter really fired the students up. His delivery was excellent, bringing an initially reticent cohort of Year 12 students together with ease and getting them to work together effectively. He commanded a crowd of over 100, never losing the group. The content covered was pitched at exactly the right level and students have come away with a much better understanding of British Values, democracy, human rights, social injustice and the power of collective protest. I recommend Beyond This without reservation and look forward to working with Peter again in the near future." (Head of Sixth Form, Sir John Colfox Academy)
"Peter's talk was part of our Induction to Sixth form programme. The talk focused on relationships and then switched to a survey of human rights. Peter is a superb communicator, His presentation has splendid visuals to support his messages and his manner was very much to the point and delivered in a style and with language which our students responded too in a wholly positive way. We very much look forward to Peter visiting us again." (Head of Sixth Form, Leicester Grammar School)
"Peter has delivered PSHE sessons and assemblies to the Talbot Heath 6th Form over the last academic year. A feature of these is that they are always current, relevant and delivered in an extremely thought provoking manner. The pupils have benefitted enormously from Peter's knowledge and expertly delivered sessions." (Head of Sixth Form, Talbot Heath School, Bournemouth)
"A huge thank you for your talk yesterday. I have had many speak to me since saying how thought-provoking and interesting they found it, and I have no doubt it has spurred some of them to act and even consider their future paths. It was clear that you know how to communicate with Sixth Form students, which is not always the case with guest speakers. You delivered a powerful, fact-based message at the right level for all to understand, and engaged everyone, even those traditionally hard to please! It would be great to have you back in the future... It is always good to have speakers in whose delivery you can have confidence." (Head of Sixth Form, King's School, Bruton)
"Superb. The content hit the spot perfectly and covered exactly what I was hoping for. The students could take away tips and ideas to help their performance in their exams. A few weeks on and the students are still talking about some of the aspects." (Head of Sixth Form, The Blandford School, Dorset)
