Meet The Man That Is Changing The Face of Sales
Phil entered the world of business at the tender age of 14.
With nothing more than a bucket and sponge, he went from single-handedly washing cars at weekends to hiring a fleet of friends working on his behalf, resulting in him earning more than his teachers by the time he was 15.
Soon after, at just 18, Phil was offered the role of Sales Manager at fashion retailer Debenhams – making him the youngest Sales Manager in the company’s history.
His early career went from strength to strength, as he worked with a host of Premier League Football Clubs to help them agree sponsorships and licensing agreements, to then being a key part of growing a £240m property business.
But in 2008, after several years of being one of the most in-demand young sales leaders in the UK, Phil decided it was time to make his own mark on the world.
He took everything he had learnt about selling/sales from his previous roles, and created a one-day workshop, where he trained over 2,500 people before eventually licensing his training to the UK, Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand.
But there was a problem…
As Phil plunged deeper and deeper into the world of sales training, and worked with more and more businesses/organisations to improve their results – he was becoming increasingly uncomfortable with the style of information that the marketplace was glorifying.
“Sales” was all about hype, it was celebrating ruthlessness and it was all about unethically persuading and influencing people to get what YOU want.
The only thing that ever seemed to matter was the RESULTS, with no second-thought for the customer.
Since then, Phil has made it his life’s work to completely demystify the sales process, and bring both simplicity and integrity to a world that is often full of big egos and even bigger lies.
With this as Phil’s core mission, he has gone on to deliver over 2,000 presentations in 56 countries across five continents, training more than two million people.
Phil’s unique philosophy of using specific word choices to teach his audiences “Exactly What To Say” in order to influence, persuade and drive outcomes, has made Phil one of the most practical and in-demand sales trainers on the planet.
Phil currently lives with his wife Charlotte between their homes in London and New York, has two beautiful daughters and a rather surprising passion for Yoga.

|I started my first business, car valeting – with nothing more than a bucket and a sponge. By the time I was 15, I had friends working for me and was earning more money than my teachers. This led to a string of other teenage businesses including landscaping and being a mobile DJ.|
