Really resonated and inspired…

Pete Luckett was a perfect fit for the Pharmasave Atlantic Owners & Front Store Managers Conference. His energy, passion and enthusiasm kept the audience captivated and his tips and insights on running a successful business in a highly competitive market were truly inspirational. As a group of independently owned and operated pharmacies, Pete’s entrepreneurial spirit and innovate approach to business really resonated and inspired our group. Pete is one of the best speakers we’ve ever had!

Jeannine Massie, Pharmasave Atlantic
favourite part of the day

“Pete Luckett was an engaging presenter at our Population Health Day on Local Food. He had practical advice for the audience. He had lots of personal antidotes to share and did so with humor. When we asked the participants what their favourite part of the day was, most said it was Pete’s presentation.”

a great motivational speaker

“Pete Luckett spoke at our “Embracing Change” luncheon. His message and presentation kept the audience captivated. Pete is a great motivational speaker.”

Chris Atwood, Executive Director , CBDC Yarmouth
wildly entertaining

“Everyone REALLY enjoyed Pete’s speech… It was not only wildly entertaining, but it was also some business world insight that the students can use in the future… we feel we could not have chosen a better guest speaker! WELL DONE!”

Jasmine Goudreau, Coordinator , UNB’s CIBC Business Plan Competition, University of New Brunswick, Faculty of Business Administration
our best agenda ever

“All comments and feedback I have received have been extremely positive. Many producers went out of their way to come over to me and commended us for our choice of speakers and for the positive, well rounded and uplifting session. We have heard many times that it was our best agenda ever – so I guess that means hats off to both your group and ourselves! Pete was just tremendous – his take home message was something everyone could, and will, relate to. “

able to transcend across diverse HR Group

“Pete was able to transcend across our very diverse HR Group, and transfer his customer service practices in the perishable product business and make it applicable to one of the world’s largest Natural Gas supplier….made it relevant, it stuck, and now it’s up to us to build upon his 7 key messages.”

Peter Barrett, Head of Training, , RasGas, Doha – State of Qatar
an outstanding speaker.

“As you know, a closing keynote is crucial – it is an opportunity to reinforce the conference theme and at the same time, provide it in a more light-hearted manner. We were extremely fortunate to have you offer the final plenary for Congress 2009. Your passion for change as a positive catalyst, your own experience as an entrepreneur, and your humourous approach, combines to make you an outstanding speaker.

Our delegates felt your message – The Gift of Change: Embracing the Challenge – while geared to your experience in the grocery industry was very pertinent to the field of public education and we appreciated the focus you placed on the importance of communication.”

Ronald G. Marks, Chair, CSBA Congress, President,, Nova Scotia School Board Association (NSSBA)
completely engaged in his message

“For many years when customers and clients were trying to describe the kind of environment that they envisaged for their facilities they would say “like Pete’s Frootique!” So finally the light came on–who could best deliver our new customer service message but the truly passionate Pete Luckett! We worked with Pete to combine his well established message along with our new creed, the 7 Essentials of Exceptional Service. Initially the audience was impressed just by his celebrity status but soon they become completely engaged in his message, only great is good enough for his customer service! Audiences see and hear that Pete lives and breathes this message so they buy in to his delivery of the program. Thanks Pete!”

Darrell Johnston, Atlantic Regional Vice President, Compass Group Canada
Kept us fully engaged and entertained

“To say that we enjoyed having Pete Luckett as our keynote for the Canadian Public Procurement Council Forum 2016 is an understatement. We quickly realized as Pete took the stage that our expectations had been exceeded and that our investment in him was well worth it for our members. He did a fantastic job of tailoring his presentation to the work we do every day in procurement and kept us fully engaged and entertained for the hour. He was an absolute pleasure to work with on-site, taking time for questions and to pose for several “selfies” with the audience. We would highly recommend Pete to anyone looking for a keynote speaker.”

Kimberley Murphy, Government of Nova Scotia
Incredibly enthusiastic thumbs up!!

Incredibly enthusiastic thumbs up!! One of the best speakers we have had—his experiences really resonated with the audience. He nailed many of the issues we deal with in the recreation world and was able to link the business message from the corporate world to the recreation world. We are all about building community and his message was what the audience really needed to hear.

David J Brown, Director of Recreation and Culture,, Municipality of East Hants
Crisp ideas & fresh practical tips!

Our “East Meets West” conference could not have been kick started in a more inspirational and interesting manner. As one of the globe’s finest Greengrocers, your presentation brought many crisp ideas and fresh practical tips to our tables! Our members look forward to implement and plant the seeds of your fresh approach in their stores. It was an absolute honour and pleasure to have you as part of our conference and to get to know you as a friend! Dynamite truly does come in small packages! We look forward to working with you in the future!”

The right mix of humor & business message…

Pete was delightful and was very well received by the audience. His delivery was just the right mix of humor and business message and worked very well in the overall program. It was a pleasure spending the day with him. Be sure to convey my thanks and appreciation for his contributions.

helped to engage and energize

Our retailers thoroughly enjoyed Pete’s presentation and I can confidently say that it was one of the highlights of our conference – The energy he brought to his presentation was infectious and really helped to engage and energize our group and the content of his speech was right on the mark for our group of franchise business owners. Our only regret is that we should have allocated more time for Pete at our conference!”

Robin Downs, Director of Marketing, Sobeys
very passionate about his topic

Pete interacted with the young farmers group previous to the banquet which created a lot of fun during his speech. He was full of energy and very passionate about his topic; which really fit the group of young, future farmers of Nova Scotia. All comments I have received have been extremely positive!”
