Global HR Director, Microsoft 

Utterly world-class. Phill is a subject matter expert in behaviour change, program design, branding, storytelling, and narrative creation and has a unique ability to fuse big-picture thinking and abstract ideas with practical insight and advice. I can think of few in the same class as Phill. 
CCO & Co-Founder, Karrikins Group Global 

Inspired. That is the word I would use to describe how Phill left our audience. Not in the way so many are inspired for the moment and walk away and do nothing. They were truly inspired - to shift their thinking and motivate real change. We could have searched the globe and I still believe that we could not have found anyone more ideal to convey the message of purpose to our clients and prospects. 
Sr Brand Strategist, Littlefield USA 

Phil is a true professional. He is highly intuitive - cutting to the chase, capturing people’s thoughts, feelings and ideas quickly and translating those into strategic pathways for growth. His ability to simplify action and provoke reflection is second to none.

I still go back to my notes constantly for motivation and inspiration. Since then, I've had the privilege of meeting with and briefing Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft. It was your teachings that made that possible. 
'R.K.' Management Lead, (Fortune 500 company) 

Was there ever a more dynamic speaker to grace a world stage? What a phenomenally gifted mind. Phill’s ability to communicate and simplify (big ideas) and make (them) relevant for any industry is mind-blowing. We were privileged to have him present to our real estate franchise recently and his gift was apparent to all in the audience. We hope to work with Phill again in the very near future.

Chief of Staff, Microsoft 

I am yet to finalise the evaluations however it appears that some attendees decided to rate you 10 out of 5. My favourite feedback regarding your session was “I took 4 pages of notes, and not because he told me to!" 
Disability Services Australia 

Phill’s pitch was timely, relevant, impactful and entertaining. He nailed it and both our customers and employees loved his message, his delivery and presence.
