Coach Message

Coaching came to me as a logical extension after 3 decades of directing plays and teaching acting. These disciplines gifted me with a unique understanding of how people hear and receive information. In corporate workshops and seminars I am able to corral disparate personalities into focused and communicative teams. Guiding these groups to perform with a sense of co-opetition, cooperation and competition, leading them to add to the profitability of their businesses. The variety of professional areas I have worked with include: Corporate, Finance, Business, Architecture, Media, Law, Real Estate, Education, Non-profits and many start-ups helping to grow their companies into a cohesive, functioning, and profitable whole. My work with individuals easily leads them, with confidence and assurance, to deliver a focused presentation that is educational, enlightening, and entertaining. The audience always walks away with a deep understanding of the benefits being offered. My work has covered a wide range of fields including CEOs, Politicians, Architects, Writers, Teachers, Religious leaders, Rabbis and Reverends. My new book, Demystifying Public Speaking, has 10 points comprising a road map to a compelling presentation and will be out this winter.

Thirty years of working in the communication field, with a wide variety of clients from different areas of the professional world, has given me a broad base of expertise in facilitating business growth. Producing conferences and presentations for companies and individuals has enhanced my ability to work both privately and publicly with clients and companies.

No job is too small or too large. I am a one stop shop from information gathering, writing and creating an educational, enlightening, and entertaining experience for the audience/listener. My site, Leonardpeters.com, provides additional depth concerning my background.

Two professors, one from Harvard, the other from Yale, came to work with me after they had written a business book which became the highest selling business book of the time. They were going out on an international promotional tour and were quite uncomfortable with the idea. After working with them their tour turned out to be highly successful. They are now assured and accomplished speakers. Working with a company who's vision statement was no internal conflicts, I facilitated by giving them guidelines to work with creating an atmosphere of comaraderie and positive competitiveness.

Amazing teacher.

Matthew Silverstein, Democratic State Committeema

“Coach Leonard Peters is an amazing teacher. After just three months working with Coach Leonard I feel like a new person. Before working with Coach Leonard every time I had to speak before an audience my hands would start to shake and I would feel sick to my stomach. Those feelings no longer exist when I have to speak before an audience. Coach Leonard has helped me to find my voice. For this I am forever grateful.”

Awesome experience.

Greg Slamowitz, Co-Founder and Co-CEO, The Ambros

“Leonard’s insight and ability helped me to focus my presentations. He efficiently targeted and prioritized my work so that I was confident in delivering what my clients most needed. Working with Leonard was an awesome experience.”

Expertise and patience.

Adam Brandenburger, J.P. Valles Professor, Stern S

“I came to Leonard Peters with a strong desire to be able to talk to people about a book I had just written, but with very little technique and with even less confidence. With great expertise and patience, Leonard taught me how to speak in public and to do so with a sense of calm and security. He is one of the great teachers I have encountered in my life.”​
