Philip’s first book ‘How to Persuade and Influence People’ is an Amazon number one best seller and has been described as ‘The definitive guide to persuasion and influence’. Having spent his entire working life studying and practising persuasion and influence, Phil now shares his learnings on this topic around the world. This subject has dominated his academic and professional career to date, his knowledge and understanding of it has been at the very root of his success. He is a speaker, raconteur and author, and offers wit and wisdom on human behaviour and how to influence it.
