With a wide variety of adventures under his belt, Pete Goss talks positively and with passion about leading teams through exciting, but often complex, difficult and dangerous situations. A natural communicator with a dynamic but informal style, Pete never ceases to amuse, entertain and inform with his presentations.
At the height of the Team Philips project, Pete headed-up a workforce of more than 100 employees, brokered multi-million pound sponsorship deals and assisted in the creation of several new companies in fields as diverse as new media, engineering, education and boat-building. Handling these complex and often conflicting pressures whilst all the while being under the media spotlight, gave Pete a unique insight into the challenges that face every organisation.
Equally at home battling the elements alone or leading a business team from the front, Pete draws from these experiences to offer management talks, team-building exercises and training sessions that will not only challenge individuals and groups, but inspire them to achieve beyond what they thought possible.
As Pete says: “I have been fortunate to have been brought up on a diet of adventure and privileged to take part in number of challenges. My training in the Royal Marines taught me to be professional at all times, even in dangerous and frightening circumstances. But fear can be dispelled by knowledge and preparation. I truly enjoy helping other people realise their full potential and tailor my talks and training to suit the needs of the audience.”
Following Pete’s dramatic rescue of Frenchman Raphael Dinelli during the 1996/7 Vendee Globe non-stop single-handed round the world yacht race, he was awarded the MBE by HM The Queen and the Legion d’Honneur by the French President, amongst a plethora of other awards, honours and life memberships.
