It's about your story

"In the heart of every thriving business is a story that breathes life into the brand, forges connections, and builds an empire. The art of storytelling isn't new yet, in the business world, its power is often underestimated."
Peter Roper The Family Business Man, aka, The Natural Presenter

Why do some businesses captivate, while others barely make a ripple?

The difference lies in the story they tell...

It's about creating experiences that resonate, mirror our journeys, and evoke emotions strong enough to forge lasting bonds and GET MORE, AND BETTER BUSINESS!


How Peter Roper can help your business today

A no-obligation Zoom call to help me understand you, your business, and its specific challenges will help me to tailor a business development programme just for you.

I offer specific workshops in Reputation and Natural Presentation, a newly introduced Masters programme and have limited space for Personal Consultancy.

Read on to learn more about my process and how it has helped many businesses just like yours!
As part of my process to understand you and your business challenges, we will cover some of the things below in our Zoom call. In my experience, paying particular attention to at least one of these areas will allow you to gain more or better clients: Clients that appreciate you, and your business plus crucially, pay you what you are truly worth...
1. Customer Connection
People love to see a bit of themselves in a story.

When you share stories that mirror your customers’ values or experiences, it's like making a new friend.

They’ll keep coming back because they feel at home with your brand.
2. Marketing Engagement
Think about the last advert that really caught your eye. I bet it was more like a mini-movie than a bulletin board.

That’s the thing...stories pull people in.

They make your marketing sparkle and stick in people’s minds.
3. Sales Persuasion
Now, selling’s an art, right?

A good story is like a picture that shows customers their lives before and after your product.

It's not just about selling a thing; it’s about offering a new chapter in their lives.
4. Employee Unity
Your team is like the cast of a show.

If they know the story of the business, the struggles and triumphs, they feel like part of something bigger.

It’s not just a job; it’s a shared mission.
5. Supplier Relations
Suppliers are your co-stars.

When they’re excited about the story of your sustainability or craftsmanship, they’ll want to be part of the saga, not just a cameo.
6. Public Relations
Media folks are always hunting for a good news story.

If your business has a heart-warming or heroic story, that’s more than just news—that’s a feature story.

Peter is an inspirational speaker who is passionate about helping businesses to represent themselves at their best. Peter's presentations are motivating and inspiring with practical tips to use when presenting.

Claire Wozencroft

Peter is as genuine as he is enterprising and capable. He is one of life's natural communicators and, from a professional and personal point of view, is utterly trustworthy. He always puts himself out for clients and others.

Sean Brickell

Peter is that rarest of speakers, someone who actually manages to combine education, entertainment and a commanding presence on stage. He speaks with consummate authority and adds real value to his audiences. Hire him with confidence.

Dave Thomas

We have spoken together at various events, written training programmes and co-authored a best selling book.
I'm not really going to have anything bad to say, am I?!
Seriously, Peter is a fantastic guy to work with and I have learnt so much from him. A fun and engaging speaking and genuine person.
One of life's 'good guys'.

Andy Lopata

Peter is not just an outstanding professional speaker, he constantly makes a huge commitment to helping others in the business to develop as professional speakers as a Past National President of the Professional Speakers Association. He is a speaker who walks his talk and I highly recommend him

Rikki Arundel

"I want to express my sincere thanks for the fantastic work you've done with our team. Your impact on their confidence has been remarkable. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you again in the future”.

Planet 81

I've seen Peter present on a number of occasions - both in a Corporate environment and as part of a Networking meet to a room full of SMEs & Family Businesses. Each time he's been tremendously well received and clearly has a wealth of business experience which he can put across extremely effectively - and at a range of levels.

Mark Tomlinson WPA

Over 80% of businesses in the UK are family owned or run, the knowledge that Peter has is huge and he is always sharing his messages and learning with clients and audiences alike. Proud to call him a friend, mentor and confident – great working with you as always Peter.

Mike Pagan

Peter shared his story with around 200 professional speakers at last weekend's annual conference of the PSA. His learnings, tips and insights touched a nerve and he really connected with us. His honesty, passion and commitment shone through. Thanks Peter.

Mark Lee

"Peter's ability to translate deep business concepts into relatable stories is remarkable."

Richard H

"Peter's keynote was more than just a talk; it was an experience that transformed how we see our business and ourselves."

Sarah G

“After attending Peter’s speaking masterclass I now have 4 speaking opportunities.  Previously I would have turned them down – now I’m just excited and keen to get talking! I fully recommend training with Peter for excellent coaching, a safe place to make mistakes, receive feedback and perfecting your technique before giving presentations.”

Claire Hill

“I've been privileged to attend Peter's Family Business Practice events over the last couple of years and they are amazing events. Peter's energy is stunning and his dedication to helping family businesses and their owners is without measure.

If you've not had the chance to speak to Peter or attend one of his events then I highly recommend it. Really appreciate everything you do and thank you.”

Dave James

“I don't think there's another speaker in the world that knows more about family businesses (in other words most businesses) than Peter Roper. He is a rare talent on stage, delivers great advice, and is the most charming and likeable man on and off stage. I recommend him unreservedly.”

Alan Stevens

I would strongly recommend any member to join this programme, I have learnt some really valuable tips and lessons across a number of different topics including networking, presenting and maximising client relationships…… I look forward to working with Peter more in the future developing me and my business.

Jamie Pratt Stockton Business Consulting

Peter provided a great course with positive interaction between the delegates to help one another. It really helped to focus the mind on how to develop my business further during the strange Covid times we find ourselves in. Highly recommended.
