Dear Peter,
It was very nice meeting you and having you as our Facilitator for the Workshop on “Effective Risk Management Oversight For Executives and Board Members” in Johannesburg early this month.
I substantially benefitted from your vast experience and excellent presentations covering the entire GRC FRAMEWORK and much more ammunition for a truly effective director and leader.
I found your capability to simplify complex topics making them easy to grasp using day day life illustrations admirable.(e.g. smart shopping)
You make complex life simple and complex material easy to digest and remember, benefitting not only corporate and institutional operations but also better management of personal life.
Warm regards and best wishes.
Sincerely yours,

Dear Peter
Hope you and your dear wife are doing well.
Please accept my sincere thanks for the hospitality extended to me and for the success scored in the programme (The Leadership Excellence Workshop), I really feel you did your best for me and I look forward to more such interaction on my journey to try and build up my leadership skills and contribution to building leaders that are committed to leadership.
May I commend you for the good work you are doing. The saying “It is more blessing to give than to receive” I feel you are always willing to share your knowledge with others, desiring to build leadership in Africa, this shows the fact that you are willing to give and may God bless you for this right attitude that you have shown.
It is also my hope that many up coming leaders can take advantage of this provision you have opened so that we do not only have leaders, but quality leaders.
Please continue with the good works.
Best regards.

I feel so blessed and inspired knowing that someone like you had given me so much support. Peter I was helpless at the time and never had any direction to my dreams. God sent an angel to rescue me, after our meeting I had to materialize my dreams according to your advice, and now realise that I was capable of more, and it was not just a dream. I then decided to research a medical project dealing in stem cell banking in South Africa, which I’m currently networking with doctor’s and senior government officials.
Peter you had installed hope, support, inspiration to me.

Dear Peter
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful execution of the task set before you this week. It was truly inspiring, I believe, both to Hans and myself. For us it has been 11 months of really hard toil to reach this point and the value you added to this event was huge!
So often many approach these matters as purely transactional situations of supply vs demand and simply delivering according to requirements. What you have given us personally, to TRALOBA and to the Wesvaal Chamber, and then to the greater audience cannot be measured. You have assisted us in changing this from an event to a “happening”.
We look forward to a future relationship with you, particularly with developing a PPP for the event.
Be blessed!

I would like to thank you most sincerely for your contribution to the US workshop earlier this week. From all accounts, it was a great success and your particular contribution was greatly appreciated.
Omega has a keen interest in the US and specifically in US-African relations; and while we caution – as did most of the speakers at the conference – against over-expectations of what an Obama Administration will mean to Africa, there is no question that his presidency will add interest to US-African relations; and this is something we will be coming back to from time to time.
Thank you again for your contribution and looking forward to working with you in future.

Dear Peter
Thank you for your message. I am very encouraged by your kind words. My chairing of the conference after you left was easy, as I was carried along by the momentum of the very positive energy you had left behind!
It was a rare privilege for me to have met you and to have been touched by your radiance. You are such a lovely human being – so kind, warm, generous, caring and wise.
Your passion for Africa – and for humanity – elevated the conference and gave it a special significance. It also made it memorable for everyone present. With best wishes for continued success in all your endeavours,

Dear Peter
Once again I am writing to give you our very sincere thanks for making our programme so successful.
Your message had real impact.
Rochelle Davidson, one of the delegates, quotes you directly: ”When you care about something it is a 9-5 job. When you care for something it is a way of life” – Peter Metcalfe (Director, Foundation for the Development of Africa). Rochelle understands this as being passionate about work.
Another student, Mpho Kgwaswane, has reflected on the long-term implications of your message: ‘I agree with Peter Metcalfe that it is sad that there is a misperception/misuse of the meaning of Nepad and BEE. I believe as a prospective entrepreneur I will perhaps add value in creating wealth (employment) and along the way eradicating poverty.’
You added depth to their understanding and your enthusiasm and commitment are inspirational.
Many thanks, Peter.
Very best wishes

Peter
Thanks again for your great chairmanship (African Infrastructure Renewal and Financing Congress).
Me and my colleagues from Namibia took a lot of ideas to reflect about home, which we will have to digest first a bit and then to discuss with our Road Fund and Ministry.
I would be glad if you could mail your most important 10 outcomes to me.
I will then add my thoughts and ideas before we forward everything to our colleagues.
Thanks again

Dear Peter,
Thank you very much for being such a warm and “real” chairman yesterday.
There are so many out there whom I’m convinced are robots or cold-blooded creatures – whilst they might be good at what they do, one is not able to feel their humanity.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards,
