About Phil


I am a pragmatic and straight forward type of coach who loves to get results and make a difference. I discovered the power of coaching while working as a young shift production manager many years ago at Philips Electronics. At the time I had very limited technical knowledge of a complex production area and was therefore forced to ask my teams questions that helped them to think of their own solutions, rather than telling them what to do. This approach (coaching) transformed the performance, mindset and beliefs of the teams on my shift. So began my absolute belief in the power of coaching. Ultimately after several other senior leadership roles I moved into learning and development and trained as a professional coach to follow this passion.

Over the last 25 year I have coached C suite executives, senior teams and leaders all over the world, in companies such as Airbus, Coca Cola, Unilever, Proctor and Gamble, Google, Microsoft and the BBC

I am an International Coaching Federation professionally certified coach, the gold standard in the coaching world.

In parallel to 1:1 coaching I love to deliver my own very pragmatic modular approach to helping others learn coaching and challenging skills. 

I have spent a lot of my life in the outdoors and have a love of the natural environment. As a consequence I have a real interest in the future of the planet and offer a percentage of my time either free or at reduced rates (pro bono) for coaching key individuals in environmental charities.
