Phil really challenged me on leadership. He didn’t pull any punches at all! Working together, he had an ability to build rapport extremely quickly and to really engage with us as a company. If you want someone that differs from the middle of the road training that outs there then this is definitely an experience to remember. I really enjoyed my time working with him.

I first became aware of Phil’s potential whilst working at Leicester Tigers during my time as Head of Elite Player Development. Although I am now based in Australia I have kept in touch with Phil on return visits to England where we catch up and continue to swap ideas. Phil appreciated what it takes to lead and coach at the highest level. I am sure that Phil will add value to any team serious about ‘top flight’ performance.
