Phil is a behavioural economist who specialises in designing systems and working with individuals to improve the speed, quality and confidence of decision-making. This often involves highlighting irrational ‘blind-spots’, identifying and maximizing opportunities, and increasing awareness of the cognitive biases that influence perception and behaviour.
As an author and experienced conference keynote speaker, he has a particular interest in applying insights from neuropsychology and behavioural economics to improve financial literacy, corporate strategy, individual decisioning, L&D effectiveness, ethics, leadership and cultural development. Phil is also a guest lecturer in behavioural economics at various universities around Australia.
Phil has also organised and led large teams in the delivery of complex and highly confidential projects, and works as an advisor to politicians, high profile entertainers, senior leaders and managers across a range of areas involving influence, perception and decision-making. These include negotiation strategies, engagement, motivation, strategic planning, systems re-design, change and leadership coaching.
