Accelerate Edge

Do you want to feel more confident and motivated to challenge yourself to find even more success and to feel more fulfilled?

Are you procrastinating and finding it hard to know where to start? 

Now is the time to really do what you want to do and enjoy the benefits from doing it.

Edge is your `make it happen mindset'.  

It's the fusion of your purposeful `Why' in your personal and professional life, with the concrete actions and behaviours to practically, actually make it happen. 

Find your Edge through a program of coaching sessions over weeks or months, following your Curve of progress using a blend of 1-to-1 coaching, bespoke software and evaluation metrics to create and maintain your ‘make it happen mindset’ 

I will provide you with access to a free online `make it happen' plan (worth £225) that you can access for 12 months to track your progress.

A bit about me...

I’ve been lucky enough to navigate the highs and lows of a career in the creative marketing industries, often having to experience personal and professional life at the outer edges of what makes me confident and comfortable. During most of my corporate life, I felt like a square peg in a round hole. It wasn't until I had a coach that I started to understand the value I brought to the table and that's when I started to stop feeling bad for the stuff I wasn't good at and instead I started to feel confident about the strengths that made me unique. 

There I witnessed for my myself the importance of challenging limiting self-beliefs and working through barriers to unlock the energy and momentum. It was only then, that I was able to define my own purpose and be guided by my own values. 

I'm here to listen generously and hold you accountable for the things you need to do to survive, thrive and find your edge.

I've achieved more than I might have imagined when I arrived in London many years ago; cutting my teeth in television production and then becoming a creative marketeer in often visionless industries, bound by the past. Bringing back GWR as a force for positive pride and change on Britain’s railway became my creative career signature. I’ve also started a number of my own businesses and helped many others build theirs.

I then became a qualified and accredited coach with the Academy of Executive Coaching (ICF). I am also a qualified NLP practitioner. I guest lecture at The University of Birmingham, and I help young people push their boundaries through the mentoring work I do at The Creative Mentor Network. 

I'm excited by the possibilities that can come from your ambition and actions. I'd love to help you define your edge and achieve your next level of personal and professional growth.  


Deborah Lewis, Organisational Specialist: I worked with Phil at probably the most challenging time in my professional life and he directly impacted how I faced it, how I over came it and how I successfully shaped my next chapter. Phil worked with me to define and commit to stretch personal goals to deliver results. 

Lucinda Davies, Mobility and Reward Specialist: Phil was a changing force in my own self belief and how I will continue to approach events that take me out of my comfort zone., I've worked with Phil for several months and he has been instrumental in enabling me to challenge myself, re-align with my values, and clarify my purpose and direction. I'd highly recommend Phil to anyone serious about wanting positive change, both personally and professionally. 

April Moores: My confidence and sense of purpose, even in the short space of a few months is on a completely new level and I feel as if I have a new lease of life. Phil is so supportive, inquisitive and just makes the whole journey so enjoyable. At no point did I ever feel judged or that there was anything I didn’t want to work through with him. I have entered 2021 ready to take on new challenges and equipped with tools that will keep me on track. So if you are looking to be coached or even just feeling a bit lost right now and need steering back on track, I highly recommend reaching out to Phil!
