The Nexus Code
A vast number of myths have grown up in the field of personal development, peak performance, and success. And because these myths sound as if they might work, because they seem as if they ought to work, people often unwittingly stick with them, even when they don’t work!
Over the past 20+ years, Phil has created a coded action plan for success, utilising a suite of psychological focus techniques, professional action tools, and goal-getting strategies that allow anyone, from any walk of life, any field of endeavour, to achieve better results and reach their goals.
The NEXUS Code is a simple, practical system to help you make any change you want.
The Nexus Code will help you –
- Elevate your life, your business, your career.
- Improve results in all areas of life… business results, sales results, health, relationships, finances, happiness.
- Remove stress, anxiety, hassle, frustration, and get you “out of the quagmire.”
- Gain confidence – the power to unleash the real YOU.
His powerful message has his audiences fully engaged and his assured style creates a lasting connection.

Title: Mindset, Motivation, and a Moment of Magic – turning yourself around when the going gets tough.

This session is for those people who
- are facing a change, at a crossroads or have hit a plateau in life, career, or business and want to step up to a new level and want to grow.
- are coming out of some unexpected life event that has knocked them off track.
- are experiencing overwhelm, stress, frustration.
Title: Imposter Syndrome: I suffer(ed) too…
If you suffer from Imposter Syndrome, you are definitely not alone! It is estimated that over 70 percent of people do.The reality is that to suffer Imposter Syndrome is certainly not unusual. It can, however, be very damaging, often crippling talent. And yet, once aware of it, there are so many ways to inoculate against its effects and overcome it.In the current climate it is made worse for many in senior positions by a sense of the lack of certainty and control many managers and leaders are experiencing.
Reflections from the White Tunnel

Title: Stepping up to the Start Line – Goals, Focus, and Motivation for Young Adults (This is typically for those in the age range 16-25).
What do you want to be? As a young adult, it can be bewildering, scary, and challenging to be faced with an array of options and opportunities. In the current climate this has been heightened when so much of what was previously taken for granted has been denied to young people… and the impact on mental health, decision-making, and connection with the world has been so damaging.
Many young adults come under increasing pressure to make significant choices in life based on exam results, external pressures, and career options in a rapidly changing world. It’s no wonder they can find it a stressful time, and often feel their choices are limited.
Over 20+ years, Phil has coached individuals and teams in all walks of life and has distilled the ingredients of success into just a few core principles that anyone can use to reach personal fulfilment. Phil speaks about how to carve out success and what really makes the big difference in achieving that success.
