Phil Olley is a sought-after inspirational speaker and focus coach who works with companies and individuals throughout the world to help them dramatically enhance performance, improve results, and achieve their goals.
Following an exciting military career, including the rigors of Officer training at Dartmouth, tours to The Falklands, Gulf, Northern Ireland, and much of the rest of the world, Phil entered business in 1990. From his subsequent wide experience of leadership, sales and business, he began to distill the ingredients of success into clearly understandable principles and following a life-threatening (and life-changing) near-death experience, began working with a number of businesses, teams and individuals to help them set goals, generate peak performance, and dramatically improve results.
Phil nearly died and describes the moment he woke up on a pavement, surrounded by paramedics, and recounts the full white tunnel experience. The lessons of what he saw, felt and experienced in that moment form the basis of his inspiring and uplifting speeches.
Phil has a reputation for his practical, energetic, challenging, and moving delivery. He is passionate about success, and his highly entertaining speeches are packed with real-life examples, delivered with creativity and clarity. His powerful message has his audiences fully engaged and his assured style creates a lasting connection.
Author of 3 books, Phil is no stranger to the media, and has written articles and columns for magazines, and has appeared on prime-time TV a number of times, and regularly features on BBC radio. His first book, Counting Chickens went international, a second edition being specially produced for an Asian audience.
His second book, RESULT! Think Fast, Take Action, Get Results, was published by Pearson in November 2012 and has also had special editions commissioned for both China and Japan.
His most recent book, Reflections from the White Tunnel, sold out on Amazon within the first 2 hours on launch day.
