Phil is a Consulting Partner in Assay Advisory, based in London and working internationally.
He spent 18 years as an entrepreneur, building and running four different businesses, predominantly in B2B Media (events, digital and publishing), across all continents and serving all major industry sectors, all of which enjoyed significant and fast growth.
In 2011, he joined Shirlaws Group (one of the top 4 business coaching organisations worldwide) as a business coach, going on to become a Board Director and, today, a Global Partner.
As an Assay Partner he supports a broad range of business owners/managers and business leaders, all of whom are serious about change, restless to drive their organisations forward quickly, and, in so doing, focused on realising the value of years of hard work. Phil specialises in understanding and leveraging assets which do not sit on the balance sheet, thus attracting strategic transactions and consequently higher equity valuations.
Phil holds a BA in Classics from Bristol University and in his spare time is the Chair of Trustees for Scene & Heard a unique mentoring charity to build esteem and express themselves through the arts.
