Book a CallAbout Philip

My mission is to challenge business leaders so that they see their world more clearly.

I focus on identifying the challenges and opportunities organisations face. This enables me to support the transformation of your business into the lucrative operation you’ve always dreamed of.

Since founding Enhancing Clarity Ltd in 2002, I’ve worked with companies big and small, and everything in between. I’m here to provide the support and guidance you need to take your business to the next level. My specialities include:

  • Growing businesses
  • Increasing shareholder value
  • Strategy planning
  • Board Facilitation
  • Preparing businesses for sale
  • Exit planning (personal and corporate)

I’ll be your mentor on this journey. As a former serial entrepreneur, I understand how difficult it can be to make the right decisions when you’re caught up in the emotion of running your own company. My role is to help you find the clarity needed to get the maximum value from your business.

MENTOR n: ‘a person who offers support and guidance to another; an experienced and trusted counsellor or friend;’

Mentoring is about trust. An analogy that I like to use is that we are walking through a darkened forest when we come to a fork in the path. What happens if we take different paths? We move further apart with each step. To stay on the same path requires complete trust between us.

How I work

I have a unique approach compared to most business mentors. My number one focus is getting company directors to think differently. I really dig beneath the surface so I can get to the root of your issues, and then provide you with the tools and guidance you need to move you and your business in the right direction.

First, we look at your immediate objectives and then your ultimate goal – such as when you’re going to sell and to whom.

Once we’ve done this, I will help you to identify the quickest and most effective way to get you from where you are now, to where you want to be. I don’t believe in simply making these changes myself however. My role as your mentor is to offer support and guidance so I provide coaching, facilitating and sometimes the odd bit of coercing so you can implement these strategies yourself.

I strongly believe in the proverb, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”.

If you need a more hands-on approach with implementation, I can introduce you to other professionals within my trusted network who can assist you.

With more than 95% of my clients coming from personal recommendations, you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands with Enhancing Clarity.
