“Pete helped me break into the games industry.

After I contacted Pete about wanting a role in the industry he called me (an international call – I was 17296 km away) to find out about me.

After a refreshingly honest and easy conversation devoid of platitudes and sales spiel he laid out the possibilities for road ahead, he was realistic but upbeat. We established what we individually needed to do to for me to achieve my dream and he set to work preparing me for the road ahead.

After months of exploring options and listening to his advice he started presenting me with opportunities. I stumbled a few times but he picked me up and we continued. The result, I landed my dream job, in a wonderful place and a real breakthrough into the industry. It started a journey which was undoubtably one of the best experiences of my life and I’m still on it!

Things that really stood out about Pete for me. He trusted and believed in me from the beginning. He worked hard to and made sure everything was in order before exploring each opportunity. He was true to his word. He is not a salesman but an Agent; I never felt once like he turned on me to get a result for himself. He is expert. He knows what the industry is looking for, he knows the key players.

After all that I didn’t realise how good I had got it with Pete. He was the first guy I contacted; blind luck! It was years later until I worked with other agents and it was only then the penny dropped about what is normal in that industry. Pete is not, he is well above.”
