"I've had the pleasure of knowing Phil for over five years - both as a coach and to facilitate the development of my leadership teams. As a coach, he is a true "critical friend", challenging whilst fully supportive, and brings all 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"

He took on our subject areas and weaved in his own unique blend of experience and delivery skills to make a real impact. It was a pleasure working with him and I would gladly use his skills again.”

“Phil's ability to provide quality solutions in a market where many promise but 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.”

Ross Barnard

HR Director

“Over the past several years, 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 coaching arena and has an ability to cut to the root of the question in a tenth of the time of many other coaches 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”
