"I met Leo Bottary when I was looking to strengthen my inner circle with the best leaders in the peer to peer industry. When I got in touch with him, I got surprised by his humility, expertise, willing to support and I couldn't stop until I finished the last page of his book "The power of Peers". Some weeks later we (CEO World and ANJE) invited him to come to Porto to deliver an incredible talk about the Peer Advantage and to participate in two peer group sessions. Leo is definitely a peer evangelist always willing to support his peer to grow every single day. I'm proud of being committed to his success in life and business. "
Co-CEO ScaleUp Valley

He always impresses me with his intellect and thoughtfulness - constantly offering alternative perspectives and unique insights on various aspects of the business. And now, he has written a book to share this with the world. If you have a chance to work with Leo, take it!"
