“You probably wouldn’t be human if you entered leadership coaching sessions without some degree of scepticism as to the expected level of benefits. What was refreshingly different about my sessions with Philip right from the start was the amount of time that he had clearly invested in building a good understanding of the landscape in which I operate. In summary though, working with Philip over the past six months has been a valuable investment in ‘me’ and my career. In particular, I feel that my Leaderships skills have been enhanced through greater awareness, focus and even some practical tools that I am cascading through my Leadership team. All of which are therefore, in turn, helpful to them to fulfil their Leadership potential too. I will always be grateful to Marsh and Philip in equal measure for this experience. I can’t recommend him highly enough.” Andrew Wilton, MD Corporate UK & Ireland, Marsh and McLennan, Global Insurance Brokers.

“Philip is the most trusted and knowledgeable Leadership Coach and business analyst I have worked with.

I would always recommend Philip for senior level coaching assignments. He makes a difference.” Tony Crabbe, International Business Psychologist, Executive and Leadership Developer and author of International Top 10 Best Selling Business Book “Busy”

I have used Philip on more than one occasion and would thoroughly recommend him.” Mike Grant, Director Lloyds Banking Group

“It is fair to say I entered the coaching experience with a degree of skepticism; time is a precious commodity and I was doubtful the sessions would prove highly beneficial. From my first interactions with Philip, my initial reservations were reset.

Our conversations have always resulted in practical advice and techniques to guide me through the upcoming challenges and these minor changes have produced significant results in my working practice.” Alistair Brighton, SVP and National Sales Leader Corporate UK and Ireland, Marsh and McLellan, Global Insurance Brokers.

With his support I was able to progress these ambitions and convert them into a cogent and logical plan of action. My performance and attitude improved significantly and I found that I had also gained many new skills. I continue to seek Philip’s wisdom when faced with a complex or challenging situation. He possesses an extraordinary ability to engage with any issue very quickly, encouraging his client to think through the situation and implement a practical solution.” Richard Kessel, Regional Finance Director, Taylor Wimpey plc

“Working with Philip Perry was a transformational experience for me. Having previously been ‘subjected to’ ineffective executive coaching, I was disillusioned and rather sceptical about completing another executive coaching programme. However, through Philip’s very open and relaxed style we quickly established a very open and trusting relationship that really helped me transform the results within my Insurance sales team.

That is exactly what Philip provided.  I would recommend him to anyone looking for the same candid support.” Sam Keys-Toyer, Global Head of Network Consolidation and Sharing, Ericsson
