BIO

“Phil worked in the investment industry for 19 years where he oversaw $50 billion of investments. He left that ‘comfortable’ life in 2007 to work on methods for tackling social and environmental challenges through core and profitable business, and was invited by Harvard Business School’s Professor Michael Porter and Mark Kramer to Boston in 2013 to help develop this field.

Phil has since become a leading author of case studies and the book, Connecting Profit With Purpose, and has frequently been called upon to facilitate collective approaches to complex social challenges.

His clients include small-medium enterprises through to multi-national corporations and everything in between, and has extensive experience working with not-for-profit organisations, peak bodies and governments.

As a speaker and facilitator, he distills years of experience into actionable learning, making use of storytelling, audience interaction and a splash of dry humour.

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

SPEAKER INTRO

This is tailored to your event and supplied by Phil and / or his representative, however this may help in the meantime:

GENERIC SPEAKER INTRO

“Our next speaker traded in a high flying corporate career to help individuals and organisations make a difference on a much larger scale, and is now a business purpose guide.

When you hear what he has to say about purpose, you’ll understand how it drives high performance and why leading companies are using it as a strategic weapon.

He’s worked with small-medium enterprises through to multi-national corporations and everything in between, including names like Bendigo Bank, Challenger, IAG, GPT and QBE. Plus, he’s helped not-for-profit organisations and government clients engage with the private sector more effectively to solve complex social problems.

Please welcome, the master of putting purpose into practice, Phil Preston!”
