What some of my clients say…

“Philip worked with me recently in a coaching capacity. He helped me gain insights that wouldn’t have been possible without the wealth of experience that he has in family business. I would have no hesitation in recommending Philip and I look forward to working with him in the future.”

2nd Generation Family Business Successor

“Having done a course of coaching with Philip, I found myself having to re-evaluate my business thinking, and reorganise my thought processes of how I want to proceed in my business career. With the assistance of Philip, I was able to extract from within, a clearer path to career nourishment, along with an understanding that this is work which I must undertake myself. Philips’ monthly sessions followed a pattern of works which built piece by piece upon each other, and in conclusion, led to an excellent mental path of how one can proceed on this process, then and now. The tools acquired during my time with Philip will be used long into the future.”

Robin Campbell, businessman and entrepreneur

“Philip was a really useful sounding board in helping me to unpack some of the challenges around the business and think through my vision and approach to solutions. He helped me to analyse where the business was at and how to get the right blocks in place for the long term succession planning for the family and the business.”

Flavia Howard, 2nd Generation family business successor
