10 Reasons to Book Phil to speak

  1. Phil’s moving story is impactful and memorable.

    The guy who died… who descended “the white tunnel” and remembers every moment. It’s a life-affirming message for any audience to hear, and provides a genuine depth to his delivery.

  2. His style is fun, with a serious and significant message.

    His sessions are interactive – a cocktail of high energy and humour, peppered with real-life examples, case studies, and engaging stories which creates a unique connection with the audience.

  3. Delegate feedback is always very high.

    Phil has a knack of tapping into the challenges faced by an audience, because he takes care to discuss the needs of the delegates with organisers and event managers in advance. He takes professional pride in tailoring every talk to the specific needs of each audience.

  4. Phil uses clear language.

    His incisive content is distilled into immediately use-able tools for delegates to take away and action.

  5. Phil has wide experience.

    A background in the military, in sales and in business means he knows how people perform in pressure situations, and how to overcome adversity.

  6. Phil is a credible published author.

    Publishers like Pearson (one of the UKs largest publishing houses) are very particular about which books they publish… only the very best get to the bookshelves. Phil’s books have made it to a worldwide audience. So the way he articulates his message and communicates his ideas is clear, creative, well thought-out, and credible.

    He is on a mission to help people supercharge their performance, dramatically enhance their results, and lead fulfilled lives. And it shows!

  8. Noted for being very easy to work with.

    Phil will go the extra mile in helping you make your event a success. He will stay behind, answer questions, and sign books. He will be adaptable and work closely with conference organisers and event managers to ensure the success of the event, above all else.

  9. Phil’s material and content are tested and proven… and relevant

    His principles are not just “text book theory”… his material is tried, tested and proven to work. His material is highly practical because he works very closely with individual clients, teams, businesses, and organisations.

Phil Olley is one of those rare motivational speakers who is able to leave his magic with his audience. Not only did he completely re-energise a diverse audience of Time Bank participants at the end of a heavy conference day, but for the rest of our UK Conference participants and speakers kept referring back to him. Time with Phil Olley is truly time well spent.

Mick Knight

Sales Training Manager, Scottish Equitable

I booked Phil to speak at the inaugural event for our Business Club and I could not have made a better choice. He delivered an outstanding presentation, with very appropriate injections of humour and audience participation. Every delegate took away a number of real tips to use and the feedback was as positive as for any event we have staged. I would like to use Phil again, and I have no hesitation recommending him.
