BESMA Awards 2013
Phil Jones is an award winning international speaker, author and trainer, having worked in 18 countries across 4 continents. His vast experience has resulted in him being recognised as an authority of sales psychology and negotiation, for increasing turnover and profitability, and for “walking the walk”.
Phil started 2013 with a bang, bagging the accolade as the youngest ever winner of the prestigious BESMA (British Excellence in Sales and Marketing Awards) Sales Trainer of the Year award, and has been non – stop helping people across the globe. He has accomplished more than most in his fast-moving life having started his first business at just 14 years of age, clearly demonstrating the qualities of a budding entrepreneur with a natural and simple approach towards sales.
A young Phil Jones
After developing a number of successful business ventures through his teens Phil joined the Management training programme of one of the UKs leading department store groups, Debenhams. Within months (at 18 years old) Phil was rewarded with the role of Sales Manager, continually building his reputation by delivering exceptional results.
He later moved to one of Britain’s favourite furniture retailers, DFS, as a promising Store manager, improving and developing sales skills of everybody he worked with. From here he held roles as head of retail, developing a number of commercial relationships for a number of Premier League football clubs, including Birmingham City Football club and Leicester City Football Club, before building a property business responsible for sales of over £240million per year.
With a track record of developing opportunities for organisations at all levels, Phil is acknowledged for his strategic intellect and has been instrumental in turning around underperforming businesses by developing new opportunities.
Wow this guy is good! “Magic words” that really get results. One of the best speakers that I have seen on the circuit.
Best New Business Award 2010
What makes Phil special is that through all his experiences he continues to learn. He has written journals since his first business began and collected countless lessons along the way. This meant that in 2008 when Phil decided his true passion was to shake up the business education market by offering something unique, he was well set to make a massive difference.
Philmjones ltd launched by developing a simple, one day workshop titled Reaching New Heights. In it’s first year, Phil took over 2500 people through these lessons and in April 2011, he shared his knowledge, material and business systems with a group of like minded professionals, keen to help their local business communities too. Reaching New Heights was launched as a business opportunity and we now have a team of trainers, coaches and mentors delivering Phil’s message across the globe, including Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand.
Phil is a regular guest and keynote speaker and his natural and interactive approach continues to delight audiences internationally; from England, to Iran, all across the USA and many places in-between. Praised for his uniquely entertaining delivery style and practical, simple, useful content, Phil’s speaking work has seen him sharing a stage with inspirational royalty including Allan Pease, Larry Winget, Richard Denny and Steve Backley OBE.
By 2012 Phil had released his first book Toolbox, shortly followed by his second Magic Words, an Amazon best seller. Both books have reached high acclaim. Phil also provides his expertise in Audio CD via our Accelerator programme, meaning that with international distribution we share his knowledge, his experience and his lessons worldwide.
Put simply; Phil Jones has developed a fresh understanding towards sales with simple processes and procedures, which help people to win more customers, who are encouraged to invest more frequently and return more often.
Phil is not a theorist but is a business educator and true sales professional, who speaks from his own experience. His mission is to teach the world to sell; changing the perception of “sales” from being a dirty word to being a profession to be proud of.
