Hi Peter,
Thanks again for your fabulous work at the 2014 GrainCorp Leadership Group Conference.
 We’ve had nothing but extremely positive feedback about the caricatures!! Thank you again for everything.
 It was a pleasure working with you. If another opportunity comes up we’ll be sure to get in touch.
Kind regards,  Allison Craighead, Internal Communications Consultant, GrainCorp Limited
"We hired Peter to drive delegates to our booth at the 2013 ADMA Forum. His skill, charisma and engagement with the crowd generated an exciting buzz around the stand. All of the visitors left with a smile on their face. Peter's use of the Pen in his approach to drawing has brought the caricature art form into the 21st century and beyond. We were able to use the drawings successfully on a follow up campaign with great results - Highly recommended!"
