"I booked Peta Milan, to host our World Sustainable Development Forum event in Mexico. She shared the stage for part of the event with HH Mike Rann, former Premier of South Australia, discussing “Visionary Leadership in Industrialized Countries”. Her ability to work with current and former political leaders and heads of state was seamless. Her presentation left an indelible mark on our audience and contributed significantly to the success of our gathering. Peta possesses a unique ability to captivate and inspire. From the moment she took the stage, her passion for the subject matter was palpable, and it immediately drew the audience in. Her knowledge and expertise on the topic of sustainability and leadership were evident, and she delivered her message with clarity and enthusiasm. What truly sets Peta apart is her exceptional communication skills. She has a gift for simplifying complex concepts and making them accessible to a wide range of audience members. Her skillful engagement fostered a dynamic and interactive atmosphere during her presentation. The impact of Peta's presentation extended far beyond the event itself. Attendees left her session inspired, informed, and motivated to apply the insights gained from their talk. The feedback we received from our audience was overwhelmingly positive. In addition to her on-stage performance, Peta was a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. We look forward to the opportunity to work with her again in the future and are grateful for the impact she had on our event"

"Peta is an exceptional public speaker, particularly in the realm of regenerative investing and finance. I've had the privilege of witnessing her profound knowledge and expertise on multiple speaking occasions. Her ability to articulate complex concepts with clarity and conviction is unparalleled. Recognizing her prowess, we invited her to speak at an event co-organized with Liechtenstein University. Both we and the audience were profoundly impacted by Peta’s transformative vision and the undeniable power she brings not only to the stage but as well when it comes to the practical implementation. We very much value her foresight, holistic and systemic approach and transformative power for good. She is a true visionary and driving force of innovation."

"At the end of the Clean Equity Monaco conference, everyone was tired from hearing two full days of presenters; however Peta reinvigorated the event when she offered her refreshing take on impact investing and the powerful concept of regeneration as a model. I then invited her to speak in Davos during the World Economic Forum at the House of Balance, where she further incited global leaders to rethink their strategies and perspectives. She was an immensely thought provoking and valuable speaker and I have continued to invite her back to speak"
Tiffany Harnsongkram - Director, House of Balance - World Economic Forum
"Ms Peta Milan has been undoubtedly amongst the biggest advocates of sustainable regenerative investment in commodities trading, investment and decarbonisation strategies, and while endorsing the same values, we were so honoured to have her to chair our Commodity Investment Summit within Commodity Trading Week Europe in London, 2023, and more to come. Her presence and speeches more than meaningfully contributed to the assembly of asset managers, commodities investors, traders and policy makers that came together at a programme where energy-transition and the net-zero objectives were major focus. As a Project Manager of our global Commodity Trading Week series, I’m in debt to Ms Peta Milan’s voice, chairmanship, contribution and advocacy!"
