Incredible performance! Peter nailed the topic. Everyone in the room came away with a much better understanding of where the next big business opportunities are in healthcare. He challenged the audience to think "out of the box"— and they responded.

"Embrace change and plan now for how to do business in the future. Don't try to hang onto the past ... It's gone." That was Peter's take-home message. His prescription is a thought-provoking call to action.

Peter's program touched all the "hot buttons" that are creating tremendous challenges for healthcare trustees and executives today. He made complicated issues understandable and outlined ways to take constructive action.

Peter gives new perspective on the changes going on in the industry. More importantly, he presents practical ideas of what to do in the face of so much change. His presentation style is unique and exciting...the lights are lowered and the audience is swept away in a world of powerful images and ideas. He combines a touch of theater with a serious educational message - and it works!

Peter helped attendees think more strategically. His insights, critiques, and market knowledge made a valuable contribution to our conference.

Refreshing! Peter avoids the tendency of many speakers to recite collective fiction. He is pragmatic, direct, and able to integrate the perspectives of patients, purchasers, and providers. Audiences are treated to deliberate thinking about where healthcare is going and—because Peter offers practical solutions—
they are motivated to act!
Robert Kisabeth, MD, Director, Mayo Clinic Medical Laboratories, Rochester, MN
Specialists can't keep doing business as usual— and Peter told us why, thoughtfully and convincingly. He pointed to a challenging future that is both demanding and optimistic. He does a superb job delivering a difficult and threatening message: specialists must change how they think and how they practice in order to survive. The good news is that Peter gives practical ideas about how to do it.
David G. Tinkelman, MD, President, Joint Council of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, Chicago, IL
Peter gave concrete and tangible suggestions about how physicians can take charge of the way they deliver healthcare. He counteracted the "gloom and doom" prophecies that physicians often hear by pointing out the opportunities ahead.
Carol Rau, Public Affairs Director, Fresno Medical Society, Fresno, CA
Peter’s keynote address challenged our assumptions about integrated delivery systems. His emphasis on the customer definitely set the tone of the entire conference.
