Phil Lowe is a coach and facilitator with 27 years’ experience of helping leaders find and act on their authentic selves. He is fired up by helping individuals find then “sweet spot” between who they really are and who their organisation needs them to be. He works a lot with individuals struggling to navigate their way through transitions which challenge their identity and sense of self.

Phil Holds a BA (Hons) in English from Cambridge University, an MSc in Organisational Behaviour from London University and an MA in Screenwriting from University of the Arts London. He is licensed in the use of the Myers-Briggs Types Indicator, Insights Discovery, The FIRO measures, the Strengths Deployment Inventory, Thinking Styles, and the EQ-i measure of emotional intelligence.

He has co-authored two books on management development, and was co-deviser and writer of seven series of the business-based panel game The Board Game for BBC Radio 4. He has featured as a pundit on BBC Breakfast (BBC1) Today (Radio 4) and Newstalk (Radio 5 Live)
