As such, I gain clarity, insight and action strategies that are only possible via leveraging my ownership and expertise with Phil's unique experience and his respect that I know what is best for me and my company. Phil is a natural leader and he wants others to succeed and realize their business and personal aspirations. I would highly recommend Phil.
- Business Manager, Four Walls (VIC) P/L

I have worked with Phil during several Sales Force Effectiveness projects and also after that I often consulted Phil whenever I needed a profound opinion or to see 'the big picture'. Phil has a great amount of experience in the industry, lots of positive energy and is a visionary who thinks out of the box.
- Manager Life Sciences, Accenture (Basel, Switzerland)

He was always willing to share from his wealth of experience and has at all times given open feedback and constructive, specific and meaningful advice that I could directly translate into actions for myself. Phil is an excellent communicator that can address any level within an organisation - from top management to front-line sales people. He is extremely quick-minded and a great motivator - not only when standing in front of an audience but also when working with/leading a team. Combining excellent strategic thinking with a very good sense of pragmatism is one of Phil's key strengths and proof of his long and successful track record. In addition, Phil has a great sense of humour and is a down-to-earth and approachable person. I recommend him without hesitation.
- Product Manager, Astra Zeneca, (Hamburg, Germany)

Completely knowledgeable with extensive executive level experience means that Phil talks the walk and walks the talk. He has helped me see situations through a different lens, which has guided me to more effective action and better results for myself and the businesses I work with. I was also amazed when I saw Phil transform someone's public speaking phobia. This person went from blacking out in that situation to being completely oblivious that they ever had a phobia around this!
- Commercial Financial Controller, Jetset Travel World Group. Sydney, Australia.

I am a specialist hospital pharmaceutical rep with over 10 years' experience. I have attended and sat through many sales training courses and updates during my time in this industry. While at a recent company sales update meeting we had yet another session booked for "Advanced Sales Techniques". While accepting that it is good to refresh skills I admit that I did go into this session with a fairly standard 'here we go again' mentality. From the outset this was a very different and dynamic session. While it was only a 2 hour session the presentation was challenging, interactive and, most importantly, beneficial and educational. The training contained several apparently very simple techniques that, in many cases, I realised I subconsciously do in my day to day job. What was unique to this training was that it focused on each point and encouraged me consciously to promote this technique to maximise the control and outcome of a presentation or sales call. I could take from the session as much, or as little, as I liked. I can work on one technique at a time or all of them together now that I am aware of what I am doing. The session itself was very well constructed and run and was constantly moving forward and engaging. Phil Owens was very deliberate in his method and consistently demonstrated the techniques he was teaching throughout the session. This was one of the best genuinely 'advanced' sales training sessions I have ever attended and will certainly be using the techniques I learnt to improve my effectiveness in promoting a strong and clear message to my customers.
