In-House Performance Programmes


As well as providing keynote speeches at conferences, Phil is often asked to work “in-house” with organisations to:

  • Increase company profitability
  • Improve individual and team performance
  • Enhance Focus, develop excellent business behaviours, and inject fresh business zest!

This might simply be a one-off session to inject extra focus, energy and “enthusi-ACTION” to your team,


it might take the form of one of Phil’s more in-depth programmes:

Guerrilla Tactics for Business Breakthroughs

A Two-Day Masterclass for business leaders and management teams

The World has changed so dramatically that just being the company of yesterday is not going to help meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.

The future belongs to those businesses and organisations that can create a powerful “Cause”, embrace a new set of tactics, and foster a results focus that is sustained for maximum growth.

This is a fully supported programme to help delegates:

  • Get away from “business as usual” – rise above the day-to-day, get Strategic
  • break the mould, and use Phil’s Generative Thinking toolkit to produce leaps in performance.
  • Apply the psychology of achievement in a business environment.
  • Use “Action Levers” to enhance focus, get out of the “stagnant quagmire”, and generate fresh results.

The Masterclass focuses on:

  • Creating your Business Blueprint – a clear Business Vision and a Master Plan of how to get there, using Phil’s unique Business “Stratagrams”.
  • How to identify and incorporate the key strategies that will allow you to make a breakthrough, create a cultural shift, and implement the change you want.
  • How to simplify and systemise the business to maximise results in the “New World Order”.

You’ll emerge with increased clarity of Vision, an action plan of how to get there, and the generative thinking toolkit and mechanisms to immediately put it all into place in your business.

We are always open to creating bespoke development programmes, and the content is always highly tailored to your circumstances and requirements.

Initial “Trailer” session

Before embarking on the programmes, a “trailer/taster session” is recommended, to give you and your team a sense of Phil’s style, and so you can see the sort of areas that will be covered. This is also an opportunity for Phil to get a real sense of the company, your team, and also to see whether there’s a good fit too.
The exact nature of this session will depend on circumstances, and will be tailored to your needs.

Workshop series

As an alternative to the masterclass format (above), a series of workshops may be preferred, allowing the material to be covered in bite-sized chunks.
This is particularly valuable where it is difficult to take the whole team out of the business for a full masterclass and where a series of regular group workshops is preferred.

So often, training seminars and workshops give you a cluster of new tools and you go away with a whole load of new “stuff” to try and do. Returning to an in-tray the size of a landfill site, it’s no wonder most of that new “stuff” doesn’t get done.

Traditional training suffers because soon after the course, the enthusiasm and commitment wanes, and faced with the “day-to-day”, most people fail to implement any of the new ideas or learning.

Which is why Phil’s programmes are all about implementation…

The uniqueness of our follow-up ensures each delegate gets to put into practice what they have committed to, so that the company gets value where it needs to see results – back in the working world.

Each delegate is assigned their own external professional coach (like a top athlete would have a personal coach) who works with them over a period of 4 –6 weeks after the course to “make it happen”.

“Helped to make sure this was not just another course folder to put on the shelf.”

Our April meeting produced a brilliant presentation from Phil Olley. Phil gave us an exceptional insight into our own internal thought processes, producing fast and fluent ideas in his own incomparable style.
Bob Marshall, Chairman, LIA; as reported in Prospect magazine

Phil’s unique style of interactive presentation gave the audience exposure to his ideas by encouraging reaction. He has the edge on other motivational speakers as he not only points out our objectives, needs and opportunities, but inspires and encourages action from his audience. He is a dynamic force and makes a significant impact on any audience.
