Peter van Stralen was our closing keynote speaker at the Nursery & Landscape Association Executive’s Annual Conference in Toronto. He hit the mark with our attendees with his message about CARE Leadership. Thanks Peter, for being an easy speaker to work with throughout the process.

On behalf of the committee and delegates who attended Hort-East, please accept our sincere appreciation for the presentations you gave at the show. This year has been applauded as having the “strongest speaker lineup” and we could not have earned that praise without you. Peter – you were so very accommodating and easy to work with – the world needs more people like you! One of our delegates actually came out of your session and said “ it should be mandatory for every person in our industry to hear this guy”!

We were privileged to have Peter speak to our Franchise Partners at our recent Lunch Lady Conference. Many said it was the learning hi-light of the event. His eight principles of C.A.R.E Leadership resonated with the group and I saw lots of nodding heads as I looked around the room. The biggest take away was about the importance of changing attitudes towards kitchen and delivery staff and acknowledging the role they play in our businesses. Staff are traditionally viewed as an expense, but just shift this belief, and staff can become assets that contribute to the growth and reputation of your Brand. An engaged staff is a powerful business-building tool. Peter’s message was delivered in a way that was extremely meaningful to the group. Our Franchise Partners were left inspired, informed and energized!
