Phillip trained with BMW Group and qualified as a Mechanical Engineer in 1998. After several years working in BMW and Land Rover, while aspiring for promotion, he studied a Harvard Business Management course which latterly allowed him to move into the corporate management arena in 2001. After 3 more years, Phillip realised that the corporate world just wasn’t for him and, he resigned in 2004 to dedicate more time to the private ventures he’d started in his own time.
Phillip says – “This was a big step for me, leaving the ‘comfort’ of the corporate world. My colleagues thought I was mad! But I’ve never looked back. My mother and father have always encouraged me to strive for what I want in life… I knew it was time to have belief in my own ability and commit to my own success.”
Since leaving he has worked and built interests in four business sectors; Leisure Industry; Retail; Online Marketing and, Business Training and Mentoring. These interests have enabled Phillip to gain a great deal of real business experience, right from the business start-up phase, through the rolling out of growth strategies, to the sale and/or acquisition stage.
Phillip now focuses his time and effort on working within two sectors:-
- Business Training and Mentoring
- Online and Joint Venture Marketing
Phillips’ Continuous Development…
There are two courses that, between them, have had a massively positive impact on Phillip’s ability to succeed. They have greatly enhanced his experience, successes and business beliefs.
The first of these Phillip was fortunate enough to attend in 2008. The course was run by a multi-millionaire, a gentleman who has made over £52,000,000 from being an expert marketer and arguably one of the UK’s leading businessman. Phillip studied under him for several intense months and, still enjoys a direct line as a private student allowing him valuable access to a wealth of knowledge, experience and success.
The second course was run by ex BBC Dragon, Doug Richard. In late 2009 Phillip invested in a programme with Doug which he continues to this day.
“The business principles and techniques I learnt on this programme took my business knowledge to a whole new level. Since, the implementation of these techniques has helped me create several, ultra-modern businesses that are nimble and light on costs, ensuring that they can react quickly to the ever changing market place.”
Phillip and his wife Pauline enjoy a lovely lifestyle in an Oxfordshire village. They both enjoy life and, of course, a good laugh with family and friends. Phillip is a keen Golfer, an avid F1 fan and loves travelling.
