Peter is an excellent motivational speaker for caregivers! He knows how we feel and what we do, and he inspires us to do our best. Bring him back!

I was fortunate enough to have attended a Peter Leidy workshop. I was a bit concerned when I noticed that this consultant, trainer and speaker on human services arrived with only a GUITAR (and what turned out to be a fabulous sense of humor), but after five hours of listening to Peter engage, educate and thoroughly entertain an audience of Direct Support Professionals, consumer/clients and administrators, I became a Peter Leidy follower!
Although I haven’t learned to sing my way through modules, there isn’t one of Peter Leidy’s DVD’s or CD’s that I don’t own or that doesn’t contribute to, educate or lighten up any presentation, including ITP’s, Trauma, Crisis, Behavior, Principles of Instruction, Working in the Home and especially Community Resources.

Peter, thanks again for the conference you presented. It was truly one of the most inspiring conferences I’ve attended.
Nebraska Association of Community Professionals
Peter Leidy uniquely combines humor, wisdom, experience, and an occasional song to help us learn ways to strengthen the connections and needed support among people with disabilities and the families, friends, and paid caregivers in their lives. You may borrow him from Wisconsin, but we want him back!
A Simpler Way
I first met Peter at our annual New Hampshire Direct Support Professional Conference. As the chairperson of the Planning Committee I recommended that we have Peter back for a second year as our keynote speaker because he masterfully validates our work and really ‘walks the talk.’ Peter truly understands what it takes to support people on a daily basis in a meaningful way –and the joyful spirit necessary to do the work well. Peter is an inspirational, insightful and entertaining speaker. Our Direct Support Professionals in NH gave him excellent ratings!

Peter Leidy is a wise guy. In the true sense of the words. Oh, he’s funny enough. He’s got a good voice and can make great music. But the fact he understands the first responsibility of helping professionals is to treat the people they support like fellow human beings, not to get the progress sheets recorded, makes him a rare and wise guy in the world I know.
Thanks for the inspiration, Peter!

Peter’s singing keynote address at our annual Supported Life Conference received rave reviews from attendees. He’s a great presenter and performer, and his songs are right on target. Peter is also wonderful to work with — organized, professional, and easy-going.
Peter’s many years of experience with individualized supports, and talents as a story teller, inspire staff to look at people with disabilities they support in a whole new light. He helps staff understand new ways of contributing to people’s success as community members.
