"Every now and again in life you cross paths with someone who has a profound and everlasting impact upon your personal and/or professional life. Phil has been one such person and has positively impacted mine .After deciding on a career change following a change in my personal circumstances and international relocation ,I was lucky enough to be steered in Phil's direction and we soon began working together with Phil as my coach. It's not only the tips , tools and techniques Phil uses to help you navigate through the process and end up with a favourable outcome  ( well described by others recommending him ) but also the emotional energy he applies to the relationship and the thinking he does for you when your judgement is clouded because you are under pressure or stress. Most importantly, Phil helps you gain personal insight, clarity of direction and confidence to pursue a winning plan whilst leveraging his significant business and leadership experience and drawing upon the expertise of others within his broad network.

Phil's character is first class and I have zero hesitation in recommending Phil to other Executives who may be going through a career transition or require some assistance from an executive coach in their current role. I welcome enquiry from anyone wanting to find out more about Phil.

 Phil was initially recommended to me by a member of my Board of Directors .I engaged Phil to assist me to be a better leader and CEO. This journey has "unlocked"  my potential and given me an improved level of self awareness. I have valued the personal journey I have been on with Phil.

I have also engaged Phil to assist me to turn my executive team into a truly High Performance Team. This process is ongoing but initial results include improved levels of trust, accountability, collaboration and ' mission focus'.

I highly recommend Phil to any leader who wants to push their limits and grow. But be warned, the journey that one travels with Phil is not for the feint of heart. It is a very personal and in depth process, which while confronting at times, does generate results.

Anthony Moorhouse . Founder and CEO , Dynamic

 "Originally I engaged Phil as an Executive Coach in late 2010 and together we initiated a fully active and transparent 360 with members of the Board and my key reports. Phil built a very clear picture of my strengths which were reinforced from multiple perspectives and clear oppotunities for me to make important changes and develop deeper relationships with key people. The process also generated for me a very strong sense of who I am and where I am at, with clear action orientated outcomes. Phil also positively impacted everyone he met during this process causing them each to rethink in a positive way how they could reflect on their own contribution and performance , and make a difference to the Executive team in how we lead the business. Phil continues to be a valuable and objective sounding board and Coach with his powerful  ability to listen, process information and ask the right questions."

"I would like to recommend my executive coach Phil Crenigan to the many people I know and value. I was at a critical career cross roads when I engaged Phil. I was increasingly unhappy at the way my career choices were developing and unsure how to make a step change. Phil has helped me gain an enormous amount of personal insight and clarity on my strengths and really helped me articulate my unique points of difference. Phil has coached me to plan out the next five year career path and has supported me through the highs and lows of interviewing, opened up purposeful networks and helped me develop a crystal clear criteria in my chosen career path which has been achieved. Phil is always available when I need his support or council  and he has made a huge and positive impact on my personal and professional life.
