Phil Holland

Phil is one of New Zealand’s leading SME business coaches. However, he is not your typical business coach, far from it. Phil is an Uncompromising Friend for business owners. He understands the loneliness, frustrations and implications of being a business owner. However, when a business owner gets clear on their goals the uncompromising coach kicks in. Phil combines his considerable education, business experience and Evolved Leadership training to help business owners really love their business.

Phil has over 20 years of growing and helping to grow businesses. From taking over a small struggling insurance brokerage with 4 staff and growing it to 70 in less than 5 years to rescuing a family run business who was just days away from closing its doors. The results Phil achieves with his clients is second to none. Phil’s unique style can be experienced via Keynote speaking, business transformation partnerships, business owners’ workshops and via the Evolved Leadership education suites.

Phil understands what it is like not to love your business. He has experienced first-hand the trauma that can ensue when things go wrong. Whilst at the time it was horrific, Phil has used this experience to transform not only his life but also to create Love Your Business. One of Phil’s legacies is to “Pioneer a new paradigm in a world that where business owners love their business!

As an Uncompromising Friend to business owners Phil will not hold back. Phil’s commitment to any business owner is that he will add significant value. He is committed to results which is why he only operates on a Return on Investment basis.

Phil specialises in helping business owners love their business. His unique style and result driven outcomes makes him a highly sort after coach. His entertaining and value packed keynotes workshops and sessions ensure that where ever he goes he is adding significant value to business owners.

Working with Phil has been great!

He firstly sits you down and understands your goals, challenges you on those if he thinks you are selling yourself short, then designs a step by step plan that is implemented through agreed weekly actions and catch ups. He doesn’t overwhelm you with going through what his plan is over the next 12 months right at the start, rather he says “too easy” and feeds it to you over time.

I’ve been working with Phil for about 4 months. During this time the action plans we have agreed to has accelerated my business growth, shown me how to manage unhelpful emotions such as stress, and ultimately turned a dream into a target that is now really achievable.

I highly recommend Phil to any business owner as he will keep you accountable to yourself- this is the biggest step in my mind to achieving your definition of success.

“We found Phil Holland via the post with his tempting introduction letter. It was good timing and good luck for us as we were at a crossroad as where we were heading with our business.

Phil got us motivated again and got us thinking and talking about what we wanted out of our business and how it could really support our personal goals too. The process has been a good challenge. I will never forget the day which was about the 5th visit, Phil showed us the truth of where our business was financially and it made us feel devastated, but we needed to hear it and see it to move forward and with Phil we have been steadily going from strength to strength and it is a wonderful feeling.

Phil has a wealth of knowledge and is always amazing us at how organised and dedicated he is, doing huge amounts of work behind the scenes with his computer savvy skills and his enthusiasm for improving himself along the way. We recommend Phil to anyone who wants to build a sound business plan and gain confidence and security back.

Thanks Phil you’re a good bugger”

“After being in business for a couple of years things were starting to pick up, our little boat struggled to keep up bobbing about in the waves.

When my business partner left due to some unrelated life matters, my little vessel felt like its mast had snapped. Momentum in sales was picking up and as the waves grew it started to dawn that business is unlikely to ever give you conditions suitable for “plain” sailing.

What I needed was to get my company ship shape, a bit of a rebuild for the harsher conditions. What I really needed was a keel, something to hold it in the right direction during temporarily especially daunting moments, if only I knew anything about boats.

Enter Phil, he happened upon me at the worst time, I was so busy at the oars I didn’t have time to be hatching a plan as to what was needed. Of course in his experience he knew this to be the best time, fit in a bit of rebuild amongst the day to day frantic-ness. Slowly conditions cleared a little, the staff gained momentum as the changes made their lives easier also.

We still have an awful lot to do, but the list is finite when you have a list, we still have some very harsh conditions to tend with. But each time I look up the setting sun is always still over the bow of the boat, the course set and maintained by the firmness of the keel in the water.
Thank you Phil.”
