Top qualities: Personable, High Integrity, Creative
â€œPhilip is a dedicated and creative operator. He worked with me hands on from start to finish to create a promotional video of highlights of a recent comedy show I produced.
He is constantly thinking ahead to ensure all opportunities are seized. As a video editor he works fast, with a sharp eye for detail and timing that makes the final product look schmick! And did I mention he is very patient in adapting to my needs.
Phil brought an abundance of up-to-date web and digital production knowledge saving me many headaches and research time â€“ invaluable as a sole operator.
I also appreciate his ability to contextualise his work within my broader business strategy, and to consider all issues such as copyright. If youâ€™re seeking a jump-start on your competitors in terms of video/YouTube promotion with a quick turn around, then talk to Philip.â€
Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative â€“ March 9, 2010
â€œPhilip has an infectious energy about him and it shows in his results. He has helped me through his canny ability to distill the essence of a business model and make constructive recommendations on future growth paths.
He is also extremely well connected, particularly in the environmental business sector and has put me in touch with some very influential people. It’s exciting to work with him and I recommend him highly.â€

Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Creative
â€œPhilip is a breath of fresh air! He was one of the first people we met who truly understood the power of PR and he wanted to try it himself. He is anything but lethargic! Within a day of purchasing our media contact lists he had refined his press release and sent it out to the media – all with great results.
Philip is a doer and is tenacious – two qualities that will stand him in good stead as he builds his business. I would recommend him to anyone who wants someone to really achieve what they have set out to do…and he’s not bad at PR either!â€

Daniel Granot hired Philip as a Business Consultant in 2009, and hired Philip more than once;
Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert.
â€œI worked with Philip during his Masters program at Swinburne. In particular, I lead a “Business Growth” simulation, during which Philip took on the demanding role of CEO. What impressed me most about Philip was the way he combined the capacity to make decisions and assume authority with the willingness to listen and engage his people.
In essence, he modeled the CEO role at its best. It is a simulation I facilitate regularly, and I rarely see someone embrace and excel in the CEO role as effectively and/or readily. Clearly, Philip has what it takes to manage and to lead.â€

John Lonergan , Lecturer, Swinburne University
taught Philip at Swinburne University of Technology
â€œPhilip has been a co-mentor within Swinburne University offering guidance to entrepreneurs and business students in terms of ideas-generation, structure, funding options and marketing – in fact all aspects of leveraging success in multiple industries through unique selling points, ethical practices and cutting edge thinking. Philip has the ability to offer suggestions that are clear and insightful, yet deliver these insights in a manner which is respectful of the individual’s own goals and personal identity.
Interacting with him over other issues (e.g. the Aust. Grad School of Entrepreneurship Alumni Association) has also been likewise a rewarding and easy communication process, and I feel he has not only the ability but the drive to succeed at driving multiple projects.â€

â€œPhilip is a strategic, creative, professional and friendly person to work with. I worked on many client projects with Phillip and every time he would have new ideas that excelled the project further than the clients expectations. It was a pleasure working with Philip and I would recommend him to any business. He always brought to the table a creative way of lifting the business’s bottom line through sales and marketing.â€
