Philip trained as a language instructor with Richard Lewis in 1975 and went on to teach in Spain before moving to South America. His language training consultancy later became the principle provider of Executive Language Training throughout Chile. As a representative of Stephen Covey, he focused on Building Trust and Principle-Centered Leadership. He has facilitated notable organizational transformations at Exxon, the Catholic University Hospital and BCI Bank and has trained over 2,000 participants from more than 40 leading corporations and institutions. He is currently pursuing his vision of building cultural, commercial and technological bridges between South America, Europe and the rest of the world. Cross-cultural awareness is, therefore, a crucial tool.
Philip is British-born, and he gained his first cross-cultural experience working as a sales manager for a transnational hotel chain in Spain. He later participated in teams of local nationals and US colleagues in the oilfields of Nigeria, Gabon, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya, residing for several months in Malta.
Philip is married to a Chilean of Palestinian descent and their move to Chile with 3 children gave him the opportunity to face the challenges of bilingual and tricultural parenthood. He has accumulated rich and unforgettable experiences of cultural diversity throughout Latin America, interacting with colleagues and participants in corporate training in Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Bolivia, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Panama and Mexico. He currently travels frequently to the UK and Spain and currently focuses on improving team performance in multi-cultural environments with a special interest in health, education and social issues.
