Testimonials from Teachers

We booked Phil for a GSA heads of English conference after using several of his inspiring books for training in our department. The quality of the presentation he brought was stunning, this was INSET that was by turn moving, funny and thought provoking. His presentation on grammar, punctuation and syntax was completely fascinating and interactive throughout and I don't think we've ever been as full of laughter on a training day. It was also incredibly useful. We've already started using some of his suggestions. We had senior delegates from some of the best schools in England and many of them said it was the best training experience they've ever had. I can't recommend Phil enough. He's pure inspiration.

I loved the overall approach, the manner in which the PD was delivered, the fact that it was real and grassroots. Fabulous. Thanks.
