After decades of standing in the fire with leaders of high-performing organizations, Peter Sheahan has come to believe that an organization will only go commercially where its leaders first go personally.

Having grown his own companies by accelerating the growth and transformation for clients that include: Apple; Chick-fil-A; DeBeers; and AT&T — Peter will provoke you to get bigger, by getting better! When leaders are true to their purpose, they gravitate towards doing work that matters and solving higher-order problems. The journey to get there requires that they have the courage to tell themselves the truth, take intelligent risks, and assume ownership for driving the alignment necessary to build an organization which behaves in ways worthy of its leadership position.

In being true to his own ambitions and relentless pursuit of growth, Peter has published seven books, built three global companies and delivered more than 2,500 presentations in 40+ countries. Today he and his team at Karrikins Group are focused exclusively on inspiring leaders to do the hard work required to accelerate growth and transformation.




You amaze me - Your ability and willingness to customize material that resonates with audiences and reinforces brand goals is incredible. I've hired speakers that range from ex-presidents to mountain climbers to Nobel Laureate economists. You deliver more bang for the buck than all of them! Hilton Hotels Worldwide – Executive Producer

From the creative's in the editing rooms of LA, to the Chairman himself in New York, Peter has had a profound impact on this company. It is very rare, to find someone who is both engaging and whose work is clearly based on ground-breaking research and genuine insight into what makes a business and its leaders successful in today's uncertain marketplace. I have no hesitation recommending Peter to any organization looking to drive innovation deeper in their company and wanting to inspire their leaders to think differently and take the necessary risk to future-proof their business.

You've been an absolute wonderful partner, adjusting to our transitions and pivots along the way. Brilliant. Agile. Trusted. Confidant. Integrity. Inspiring. These are some of the attributes I use when describing your contribution to AT&T. Thank you for what you have brought us... It is corporate life changing for us and you have left a lasting impression on the leaders of AT&T!
– AT&T – PRESIDENT
Sheahan was the best outside speaker we have had at this conference in 10 years. He added real value and he was able to put into words, what I have been feeling. His presentation was literally perfect.
– UNITED TECHNOLOGIES – CHAIRMAN
Your insights were exceptional and I appreciated the research you did and the focused attention you gave to our particular needs. Your content was spot on for this audience of global leaders and I sincerely enjoyed our time together and received many comments on the value you brought to our global managing partners meeting.
– DELOITTE – GLOBAL CEO
Peter exceeded my expectations. During our pre-event briefing Peter asked me to send him as much information as possible for our industry so that he could work that into his presentation. I took Peter’s challenge, sending a large number of reports that he successfully integrated. The surprise, was the integration was natural, done in an unrehearsed way, which was extremely credible and reflected very well on our organization.
– PHOTIZO GROUP – CEO
Peter Sheahan addressed our most senior and high performing staff as part of an ongoing leadership development program. His online sessions were high energy, very informative and most importantly, thought-provoking… It takes some real work to get an already successful group of professionals to rethink the way they build their careers, and where their future success will come from and Peter did that superbly… I have no hesitation recommending Peter to anyone wanting to fast-track the success of their key performers.
– GLAXOSMITHKLINE – TALENT & PERFORMANCE LEAD
Taking a step back and truly focusing on our purpose as a business with Peter and the team, and then creating a brand promise that is compelling and intriguing to the right people who align with that, is one of the greatest investments in my business that I have made as an Operator.
– CHICK-FIL-A – OPERATOR
OUTSTANDING. I ate lunch at my desk-side and attempted to multi-task, do other work, with headphones on. Peter's ability to deliver content was spell bounding though. I had to give my attention over more than once. Excellent. I hope every person at director level and above made time for this. Affirms we are doing the right things at GY these days. Just having opportunity to listen in on spur of the moment on talent like this speaks volumes. Thank you.

Motor City YPO Education Year needed a boost to get us on track with ratings in the 10 neighborhood. Peter and his intense energy, relatable storytelling and ridiculously solid content hit the bullseye! We had 60 + companies represented and there wasn't a person in the room that didn't grow from the experience. As a CEO and owner of 3 companies, I walked away with serious reflections, harsh truths, and our leadership meetings instantly changed for the better! If you're looking for a challenge, to reflect on self and business and step up your game, Peter Sheahan is the right thought leader. Peter is a bad ass and everyone is better for the time we spent with him!
