Specialises In (based on submitted proposals)

Phil helps companies, NGOs and government apply shared value principles to create social change at scale: it's about finding the points where the business agenda intersects with societal needs.

In comparing social engagements by companies:
- Philanthropy is motivated by corporate conscience
- Social responsibility is about managing downside risk; and
- Shared value embeds larger scale win-wins in business-as-usual.

As an independent practitioner, Phil helps organisations identify and bring shared value opportunities to life using a range of idea creation, development and implementation tools.

He was invited by Michael Porter and Mark Kramer to Boston in 2013 to help form the inaugural global practitioner network, and co-created Shared Value 101 workshops with the Australian peak body.

Phil is an acclaimed keynote speaker at events who also possesses outstanding facilitation and panel session hosting skills.
