Chris Martin – Presenter & Music Producer, Absolute Radio

Having worked with Philip, both as a presenter / journalist and content provider, he has something somewhat unique in the industry… the ability to take a back seat and simply be a facilitator to a great song or showbiz story.

And whilst that might not be a strategy to achieve short-term wins in the career or ego stakes, it’s a long term win when it comes to industry respect and standing.

Rick Simmonds - Group Programme Director, Celador Radio

Philip’s journalistic skills and producer’s mindset are well-known and well-regarded in the industry, and have been for many years. I have had the chance to work with Philip on a number of audio & radio projects – his charisma, confidence and trustworthiness have established him as a really great person to deal with.

I believe his genuine enthusiasm for the work he does and his ability to inspire those around him definitely set Philip apart as both a leader and a mentor. He also has a strong team focus when talking to others about the Entertainment News brand and always shares and passes due credit to his colleagues.

Drew White – Media Music Creation, Qusonics.com

I cannot speak highly enough of Philip, he is incredibly talented, great with people, a wonderful ambassador for your company and extremely versatile as he can work on many content platforms and always deliver quality.

He really gets Media and Entertainment and very driven to achieving good results. Any company who hires Philip will gain a real asset.

Andrew Phillips – Producer Xbox Apps & Music, Microsoft

I worked with Phlip at Capital Radio in the 90s – one of the most creative periods in London Radio.

Philip worked in a pivotal role within the London content team and I would have no hesitation in working with him again.
