Thanks again for your presentation … It gave such a clear and helpful perspective on shared value, and I have had lots of great feedback from the event that people are feeling a lot more engaged and keen to start doing stuff in this space.
– Lucy Brotherton, Parramatta City Council

The audience loved your presentation … it was the perfect introduction to Innovative Partnerships & Social Investment!
– Mia Zahra, Sydney Regional Coordinator, Participation & Inclusion, NSW Department of Family & Community Services

Phil’s working session implanted the shift in thinking that we, along with our key stakeholders, required in order to improve our thinking about business engagement.
– Anne-Marie Ryan, Executive Officer, Geelong Region Local Learning and Employment Network

Thanks Phil, the webinar for the Community & Social Planners Network was great. Using the case studies from City Greater Dandenong as examples, it clearly explained opportunities for local government to identify and facilitate business and community relationships that go beyond token support and engage at a much deeper level.
– Fiona Read, Victorian Local Governance Association

I brought Phil into a community capacity building project to seek, match and develop corporate partnerships to build sustainability with two small community based organisations. Phil quickly grasped the key outcomes needed, with a creative approach and respected the community organisations values in seeking corporate partnerships who can work alongside them rather than take over them. Great results so far for both the community organisations and the corporate partners achieving a common benefit for each other.
– Armando Reviglio, Coordinator Community Partnerships & Safety at Wollongong City Council
