ADVISOR & CONSULTANT
Sometimes you need an independent advisor or consultant to find out what everyone’s thinking, to bring partners and stakeholders along or tackle specific challenges.
Phil’s highlights include strategy reviews for major corporations, regional employment projects, local government strategies, stakeholder engagement, indigenous projects, corporate engagement guides for NGOs, best practice case studies and shared value case studies.
Addressing challenges in ecosystems is more powerful than business systems or isolated interventions. Phil draws on the following methods in his work:
- Shared value principles
- Collaboration tools and techniques
- Appreciative inquiry
- Network structures
- Human centred design
- Business, economic and social impact measurement
- Alignment and influencing skills
- Advanced communications
He doesn’t bombard people with intellectual gobbledegook, he uses tried and tested practical methods to delver on your brief.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Great results so far for both the community organisations and the corporate partners achieving a common benefit for each other.
