I recently received a very nice testimonial from one of my last events where I was keynote speaker. I was able to speak at the Western Winter Workshop 2013 for the AACE International. It was a fun event and I enjoyed every minute of my presentation, and so did the audience. Below is a testimonial from Julie Owen who organized the event.
"We were extremely lucky to have Neil Peterson as a keynote speaker for the 2013 Western Winter Workshop. He spoke of the terrifying experience he and his family experienced in surviving the rogue wave and being trapped in a cave. Neil has a fantastic talent to connect with every member of an audience. His speech had our group of over 150 attendees mesmerized. Our group will never forget his performance."
A while back I had the honor of being selected as one of the "80 Men to Change the World". The site is in French, but you can use a translator to read the article. It covers my work with a car-sharing program called "Flexcar", now known as "Zipcar".
A few years ago I had a very scary, near death experience happen to us on a backpacking adventure on the West Coast Trail, a 47-mile route that hugs Vancouver Island's Pacific shoreline. During the second day of our trek we were swept away by a rogue wave. But we all survived. Backpacker magazine recently wrote a survival case study based on our experience.
