And yet a lot of lawyers find public speaking a daunting experience. Unsure about how to deliver a public speech or how to engage an audience, they hide behind a traditional powerpoint presentation.

Your Coach

Peter Kessels has experience in all positions the legal profession has to offer: legal counsel, judge and attorney-at-law. Until recently - and for almost 15 years - he was the Head of HR of one of the major law firms in Belgium.

Peter also has a passion for teaching, which is reflected by his work as a guest professor in HRM at KU Leuven and Université St-Louis in Brussels, as well as the EHSAL Management School.

All these elements combined make for a solid foundation for giving training and coaching in the legal world.

On a more personal note, Peter is totally crazy about the very unique combination of aircraft carriers, special forces and skiing. Not the most obvious combination, but hey, who wants an average trainer anyway?
