Myself and my team has enjoyed working with Phil. His coaching style with a high engagement level combined with solid theoretical understanding of team dynamics was instrumental to make our journey successful as a team.

The brief Phil had from my boss had been to make me more of a people person and less execution/delivery focused. Phil was clearly successful as my change in persona was recognised. I would highly recommend having a coach to anyone and I would highly recommend having Phil. I have fully benefited and enjoyed my sessions with him. Thank you, Phil – you are awesome!
