About Phil

After a successful career leading high performance teams in the investment industry, Phil founded The Collaborative Advantage to help organisations harness the benefits of collaboration in responding to powerful trends and change.

His clients range from blue chip corporations through to government departments and non-profit organisations and he’s worked on big stages, in boardrooms, basketball courts and the back of Bourke (literally).

As a speaker, he distills years of experience into actionable learning, making use of storytelling, audience interaction and a splash of dry humour for a journey of insight and inspiration. Highlights include keynoting at corporate strategy days, leadership conferences and driving projects that tackle youth employment challenges.

In 2013, Phil was invited by Harvard Business School’s Professor Michael Porter and Mark Kramer to Boston to help form a network of global ‘shared value’ practitioners. Their role is to help corporations use the profit motive to tackle social and environmental challenges. He has become a leading practitioner and case study author in this field.

Phil is the author of the e-book, How To Create Successful Teams & Avoid Management Failure and upcoming book, Connecting Profit With Purpose: How to Create a World-changing Business.

Outside of work he is enthusiastic about coffee, chocolate and trail running!
