Following an exciting military career, Phil entered the world of business in 1990.
A life-threatening (and life-changing) near-death experience (the full “white tunnel” moment of clarity) coupled with his wide experience of leadership, business and sales, helped him to distil the ingredients of success into clearly understandable principles and in 1999 he established a performance coaching practice and began working with a number of businesses and individuals to help them set goals, generate peak performance and improve their results.
He quickly became a sought-after inspirational speaker and has worked with business people throughout the world, from company owner-managers to strategic leaders in international brands, as well as people from all walks of life seeking to achieve their goals and reach greater fulfilment.
Phil is no stranger to the media, has written articles and columns for magazines, is often quoted in the national press, frequently appears on BBC radio, and has contributed to prime-time TV programmes, including having appeared a number of times on the Richard & Judy show!
His first book, Counting Chickens “went international”, a second edition being specially produced for an Asian audience. His second book, RESULT! Think Decisively, Take Action, Get Results, was published by Pearson, and following success at high street bookshops, as well as the business section at airports, special editions have been commissioned for the Far East markets.
His most recent book, Reflections from the White Tunnel, revisits his near death experience, and he connects that moment of clarity with his NEXUS Code – the subject of his public events where audiences are enthralled by both the story itself and the principles Phil has developed to help anyone reach a more fulfilled, successful and significant life.
In addition to running public masterclasses and seminars, Phil speaks at conferences and business events, as well as working with select individual clients in both the UK, and throughout the rest of the world.
