He doesn’t bombard people with intellectual gobbledegook, he uses tried and tested practical methods to deliver on your brief.
His ability to engage with people, to challenge and to stimulate new ways of thinking, while providing us with a clear strategic approach was highly skilled.
Phil helped us think more broadly about business partnerships to identify and explore shared value opportunities in our goal to improve Indigenous health. He has a good understanding of corporate and not-for-profit perspectives and great ability to identify mutually beneficial solutions.
Phil is great at recognising issues, opportunities and trends and identifying practical opportunities through conversation and workshop facilitation. We contracted him on two occasions; on both he delivered in full, on time and beyond the brief.
Great results so far for both the community organisations and the corporate partners achieving a common benefit for each other.
We hired Phil to help us improve our capacity in this area and, as a result, we have significantly improved our strategy, plus he provided us with some great tools and techniques in the process. It’s given us the ability to improve our impact as a crisis prevention operator.
As a community we have decided to focus on youth unemployment and Phil has helped us engage with local companies to open up their thinking around sustained solutions and win-win outcomes.
