Testimonials (4)

Charlie Nordblom, Strategic Communications | Volvo Group

Phil has wide experience in communications and a real pedigree in public relations. He has actually worked inside global companies and international businesses. And he has that rare “helicopter” perspective. As a consultant and business advisor, he’s credible with a ton of integrity.

Andrew Hoppe, Central Web Team | World Health Organisation

"Having attended a number of conferences and workshops, I particularly valued the fact that Philippe is actually very passionate about the topic of corporate blogging. So rather than presenting a checklist of pros and cons, Philippe showed what great opportunities exist, and how to circumnavigate potential challenges in implementing them. In short - Philippe's workshop was ideal for those who actually want to leverage the new communications channels for the benefit of their organizations."

Beatrice Delfin-Diaz, Communications Officer | Siemens AG

Philippe's presentation was very professional, well oriented to the audience (Business Managers), given the added value of using social media. Philippe covered the possible results that it could bring in terms of impacting the image and increasing the awareness of our business/activities in Industry, Healthcare, and Energy sectors.

Sam Versluys, Digital Manager | ‎Ingenico ePayments

Philippe is usually way ahead of his time in his business. He talked about online PR and transparency when those were still scary concepts for most of his peers. He introduced online monitoring long before it became an industry and started using the social web to complement press releases when everyone else was still in newspaper mode.
