“Peter gave the keynote on Health x Tech, an evening on the topic of medical technology organized by the faculty associations of medicine and engineering science at KU Leuven. Almost 500 students and alumni attended the event. With his accessible and interactive lecture, Peter was able to create a curious mindset among the public and set the tone for a successful evening. He was well prepared and even introduced the other lecturers when touching their fields of experience in the keynote. Peter is a very approachable and kind person and the communication to make arrangements on the keynote was smooth and enjoyable."

Imagine all of that talent combined with some Dutch flair and you have Peter. He can upgrade me any day! Great motivational speaker. Biohacking influencer pur-sang.”
“Peters bijdrage op onze quantifiedstudent.nl conference 2017 was precies in de roos. Enthousiast en op basis van eigen ervaringen weet Peter een abstract iets als quantified self tot iets heel praktisch te maken. VerwAcht geen holle goeroe verhalen, maar praktisch met een vleugje humor en ook serieus! Tnx peter!”
