It’s what others say that really matters ……

Ben Sweetman (Director)

I worked with Phil for over 5 years, and most recently Phil provided a series of coaching sessions for me. I found Phil an insightful and astute leadership coach; he has an ability to get right to the core of the problem in a couple of questions and then help you find the way forward. I’m very grateful for the support he gave me over the last year 

Ben Pike (Managing Director)

Fundamentally Phil challenges and equips business leaders to live up to their role. Phil balances consulting and facilitation with his own extensive experience and research to deliver fast paced and high value executive development. Recognising that the success of most business today is about the performance and capability of staff, Phil uses his deep understanding of people to provide practical tools that support managers to motivate, develop and raise the performance of their teams Ben Pike (Managing Director)

Nova Ferguson (Practice Head)

Phil Holder has a unique and challenging approach to marketing, leadership, coaching and training based on many years’ experience as a company owner, leader, Director, manager, coach and trainer. He combines knowledge of practical best business practice to provide thought-provoking interventions and support. He applies humour, objectivity and fresh perspectives as well as being courageous in his decision making. Curiosity and continuous development are the underpinnings of his personal and professional ethos. Phil is also refreshingly open to being challenged and changing his viewpoint if appropriate. Working with him has been a pleasure – and an excellent learning experience. I heartily recommend him. 

Vicky Lovelock (Snr. Manager)

Philip is a brilliant course leader – I haven’t stopped raving about his course since I took part in it four months ago. The way he presented and engaged with the participants was second to none and actually made you think and most importantly come away from the course and apply the knowledge you had gained

Cheryl Swanns (Director)

I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with Philip during a brief international assignment I held in London. Philip had already built strong relationships within the organisation especially among many of my London-based colleagues. He has a reputation for being very personable, a wonderful listener and as a coach with impact on such topics such as human behaviour, leadership and team dynamics. I remember my first conversation with Philip, his intelligence was engaging and thought-provoking and like many of my colleagues described…”the time flew by”. Philip holds delicate conversations with people regarding their talents and opportunities for improvement in a very creative way — by listening, sharing stories and leaving the client with simple next steps towards their personal development. Philip is a wonderful thought partner and adviser who has been exposed to differing corporate industries and experiences. He was a pleasure to work with so I am delighted to recommend Philip to those seeking a coach and consultant who offers keen insight, has a deep of people & leadership and collaborates well with everyone. – 

Paul Tuck (Director)

I am pleased to recommend Phil. I have worked with Phil over an umber of years with great success. He has always provided professional support and creative solutions that are highly valued. 

Nick Kemsley (Director)

Over the past 4 years or so, I have interacted with Phil both as a user of his services and in more informal circumstances. He oozes energy and positivity, and has a very creative mind allied to a commercial business grounding – which makes him very entrepreneurial. Above all, Phil is one of the most intuitive and insightful individuals that I have met in the consulting arena, and has an ability to cut to the root of the question in a tenth of the time of many other consultants I have encountered. From a purely business perspective therefore, this makes him great value. From a more personal perspective, he is also a pleasure to work with. I recommend Phil to those wishing to get under the skin of what makes them tick, or where a different and creative approach is desired

Les Reid (Principal Consultant)

Just seek Phil out – he’ll inevitably help you become more insightful about whichever part of your world you want to improve

Mark Laughton (Financial Director)

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Phil for over five years – both as a coach and to facilitate development of my leadership teams. As a coach he is a true “critical friend”, challenging whilst fully supportive, and brings all of his experience to help you find your own answers. As a facilitator he brings a great positive energy combined with original thinking, which he uses to bring people together as a truly collaborative team. He is the most intuitive person I know and whenever we talk I always come away energised, with great insights and practical advice that sticks

Ross Barnard (HR Director)

Phil’s ability to provide quality solutions in a market where many promise and few truly deliver has been our reason for using his services repeatedly. This is highlighted by his high energy,creativity and ability to understand complex situations

Charlie Connell (Managing Director)

Phil will find a way using his varied tool kit to help you see that which is inside of you in a lucid and thought provoking manner. Never afraid of challenging you, yet providing full support, Phil’s commitment to you as an individual is unparalleled in his field of expertise. Phil has worked with me 121, and with a number of teams within organisations that I have worked, and he has helped so many of my colleagues to find their inner self, and his investment has reaped material benefit in their contribution to the organisation. He is a stand–out performer in a class of his own – money well spent

Roger Greenway (Enterprise Account Manager)

Philip is the most professional, inspirational and charismatic person I’ve had the pleasure to work for. He has an extraordinary ability to really understand people and what makes them tick. If you want to make a change to your life – you have to make a change in your life. I highly recommend Philip for you or your business needs
