Coaching programme feedback: 'I have been hugely impressed by Philip's understanding of me, the ways he's managed to push me to address the things I need to... Overall the most incredible thing - for which I am profoundly grateful - is that over a short period of time I have really seen the impact of our work in my ability to function successfully at work - especially in those areas I really wanted to address. I can hardly believe how massive that impact has been, and it's been repeatedly noted and commented on (in good ways and unprompted) by colleagues. I will look back on this work as a turning point in my professional life, I think.'

'I believe I am very self-aware and yet the session has opened my eyes to being more conscious of listening to how I actually feel. I recognise I ned to pay much greater attention to this and develop this going forward. Great session. Most useful of the whole event.'

Coaching programme feedback: 'Phil has been coaching me for the last 3 years. He has made an enormous difference in how I approach work, from how well I work with my stakeholders, to knowing what's important to me. I have developed considerably in my awareness, leadership skills and how I deal with people and challenging situations. The challenge Phil gives me makes me focus on what's important. All of the interventions we have discussed and worked on are very doable, and I am able to do this during a very hectic work schedule. You must give it a go. You won't regret it.
