"The ease and flow of the event exceeded our expectations, largely due to your detailed guidance through each stage of the planning process, technical knowledge, and on-the-day assistance. The feedback we have received from Forum participants has been overwhelmingly positive, with comments including “it was very well facilitated”. As this was our first online event, your expertise was central to our delivery of a successful and professional Forum. We would not hesitate to engage you again in future. I would like to thank you once again for offering your consultancy services and technical management of the Forum and for your support of the Councils’ work. It has been a pleasure to work with you."

"Pete Malicki has been generous with his time in providing us guidance on the most effective approach to preparing our corporate training video. Utilising his coaching skill and excellent knowledge of video production, Pete was able to pinpoint areas of focus and improvement where necessary. Pete is very approachable and thoroughly enjoyable to work with. I certainly do not hesitate to recommend him for consultancy or career development coaching."

"Pete Malicki provided our not-for-profit organisation a two-hour pro bono coaching session which enabled us to talk through our video editing ‘pain points’. Pete was able to quickly identify areas our team could upskill and upgrade, while keeping in mind our small budget. He provided practical, no-nonsense advice on video production, broadcasting and livestreaming, and suggested several relevant avenues of support. Pete is a warm, dynamic person who is both professional to work with and easy to interact with. I thoroughly recommend him as an industry consultant and career development coach.”

Firstly I would just like to say thank you so much for the coaching over the last three months. I really really enjoyed it and I found so much benefit from it. Secondly, I felt that it challenged my thinking and challenged the way I conduct myself. I believe this is going to be very beneficial for me.

"Our organisation was due to hold our biannual forum but because of Covid-19 needed to do this via an online platform. I was given the responsibility to make this happen but had no experience doing such a thing. Pete Malicki was all that we needed and more. Not only was he a master of all things to do with online events, he listened to all my needs, my concerns, my anxieties and delivered on everything he promised. He does not just talk the talk, he walks it. He kept me and the team involved and up-to-date with the next steps and heavily assisted us on managing the entire event from start to finish without any glitches. Pete continually reassured me that he was confident our online event would run smoothly. He was absolutely fantastic and extremely thorough in his event management and testing of everything. We had a successful online forum with glowing reviews from our participants about how well managed it was, so we were all pleased and extremely thankful that Pete was with us all the way, holding our hands and helping us to deliver such a successful online event. I would highly recommend Pete and definitely look to working with him again. He was charming and fabulous!"
