BESMA Awards 2013
Phil Jones is an award winning speaker, author, trainer and coach. His vast experience has resulted in him being recognised as an authority of sales psychology and negotiation, for increasing turnover and profitability, and for simply getting stuff done!
Phil started 2013 with a bang, bagging the accolade as the youngest ever winner of the BESMA Sales Trainer of the Year award. 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. 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 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 with Birmingham City Football club and developed a number of commercial relationships for 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 set to make a massive difference.
Philmjones launched by developing a simple one day workshop titled Reaching New Heights. In its first year Phil took over 2500 people through these lessons and in April 2011, Phil shared his 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 and we now have a team of trainers, coaches and mentors delivering Phil’s message across the globe.
Phil is a regular guest and keynote speaker and his natural and interactive approach has delighted audiences internationally. Praised for his uniquely entertaining delivery style and practical, simple, useful content, his speaking work has seen him sharing a stage with inspirational royalty including Allan Pease, Larry Winget, Richard Denny and Steve Backley OBE.
In 2012 Phil released his first book Toolbox, shortly followed by his second Magic Words. Both books have reached high acclaim. Phil also provides his expertise in Audio CD via our Accelerator programme meaning that we can share his expertise across a huge area and in a format accessible by all.
Put simply; Phil Jones has developed processes and procedures which help people win more customers, who are encouraged to invest more frequently and return more often.
Phil is not a theorist, but is a business educator 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.
