My Teacher Intro

I currently run a freelance global business consultancy and people development practice, after a successful career in the corporate arena whilst operating across many business sectors as the mainboard director in sales, operations and project management. I currently run two successful online platforms, one which is in India and the other across all Russian speaking countries.

My fields of expertise and those which will be my focus on the Learned Live platform, fall into three development areas, firstly, working with 18 to 24-year-olds who are about to leave education and take on their new roles, as this is a specific requirement which managers in 2020 are highlighting as key. This will include such skills as team-working, working with managers, conflict in the workplace, presentation skills and innovation, to name a few.

Secondly, I will be working with existing managers and teams in developing leadership, influencing skills, cross-functional team working, sales and negotiation skills and coaching.

Finally, strategic planning in three areas; for start-ups who have great ideas but are not sure how to implement them, for SME’s who have grown to a certain size and now need fresh direction, and finally, existing corporates who are dealing with challenging times and need to adjust their strategy, culture and ways of thinking.

My style of teaching has been described as fast-paced but easy to follow, dynamic, using real-life scenarios and memorable (the critical bit). I look forward to working with the clients on the Learned.Live platform and sharing my knowledge and expertise.

Qualifications & Experience

Philip has worked at all levels of management through to the board director. He has operated as a strategic consultant, executive coach, Interim director, facilitator, NED and people developer globally for the past 25 years. Philip is also an entrepreneur with online businesses in both India and Russia, giving him a real-time understanding of changing markets, global movements, current business challenges and technological developments.

He recognises that all businesses are at risk from disruptive new players, who can, and will, improve efficiencies in the majority of global markets. Therefore, he believes any organisations which continue to operate as it has always done, will struggle to survive over the next 10 to 15 years.

Over the years, Philip has gained an in-depth understanding of an extensive and diverse range of market sectors from SMEs through to major corporations in both the private and public arenas, across different cultures and economic environments, including working in partnership with organisations from the Former Soviet Union (FSU and CIS), Africa and across Western Europe.
