From training more than two million people worldwide to coaching some of the biggest brands in the world – Phil’s mission to “teach the world to sell” has resulted in his expertise being globally recognised.
Understanding behaviour, he’s able to use his infectious thought-provoking style of delivery to make long-lasting change by re-wiring beliefs and instilling what he refers to as his “Magic Words”.
By teaching audiences how to use particular word patterns and showing them exactly what to say in order to work around difficult situations, Phil’s able to help non-sales people to increase their activity and have more of the right conversations to generate more of the right outcomes.
