What others say

I am writing to say thanks again for your thoroughly inspiring
presentation at the recent Referral Institute conference in
New Orleans. As a Certified Speaking Professional and the
President of the Global Speakers Federation I get to see
a lot of conference speakers around the world and I can
unashamedly tell you that your presentation presented real
value to all participants. Your ability to craft your message
within interesting stories and anecdotes is a real skill and a
joy to watch, not only that your message contained useful
information which I was able to go home and apply straight
away. Phil I am looking forward to the day when we can both
present on the same conference platform. Until then I wish
you ongoing success.

“The audiences were overwhelmed by the interactive session
where they were able to practically calculate the difference
between selling with and without the referrals. Phil’s style of
connecting with people was excellent and it indeed was a
delight to see him in action.”
