“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.”

Stuart Callison, Director, Time Banks UK

“Where to start? My whole attitude and outlook completely changed following our sessions. A confidence was stirred from within that I didn’t realise I had. We are now getting on brilliantly with great results. We smashed our target, and ended up 49% up against 2012. I literally cannot thank you enough for the wisdom that you imparted and the impact that you have had – it has changed everything!

Aimee Roberts

“I have had the privilege of being coached by Phil for the past 5 weeks and cannot praise his coaching abilities highly enough. Meeting with Phil and working with him has helped me focus on and clarify my personal and professional priorities and enabled me to set goals to help realise these priorities. His manner and approach are both professional and challenging, easing me forward with support, knowledge and encouragement.”

Tricia Grimes, MD, Momentum

Dear Phil


I am writing to thank you for all the help you have given me in the last 6 months. Your initial help with coaching techniques proved invaluable in my day to day dealings with staff who are now being far more creative and focused in their roles.


Everyone involved knows exactly what success is and what behaviours we expect of them to achieve it both for themselves and for the company.


More recently we have worked together on strategic issues for my own role. Our sessions have helped me spend time working on my business (as well as in it) with the result that I have the immediate future totally clear in my mind (and written down) and plenty of ideas for implementation in the months ahead.


Phil, I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone. Please feel free to give my name and contact number to any prospective client who wishes to discuss what you have helped me achieve.


Once again, thank you for your help, and I am looking forward to our next session!


Yours sincerely

M D Knight, Sales Training Manager, Scottish Equitable

Your session was exactly what was needed. Indeed, one of the delegates commented that he had learned more from you in an hour than in six months in the branch!”

Fiona Jones, Training Manager, Scottish Equitable

You have illuminated what is important. with focus, I have slowed down, been promoted at work and have just completed a marathon! Thank you. There is no stopping me now. Work is great, and I am destined for great things. I will never forget what you have done for me.”
