Writer and Psychologist

You can look forward to lots of interactivity, practical outputs and fun from my courses, as I love learning through doing. My main theme is better business communication, and I especially like giving you 1-2-1 feedback - so courses are designed for this. 

Hello, I'm Philippa, writer and business psychologist, with 30 years experience of freelance writing - as web editor, newspaper columnist, TV scriptwriter and book author - and working as a business psychologist for blue chip clients.

The Times kindly serialised my non-fiction bestseller 'Irresistibility' while my self-published novel got made into a double Bafta winning TV film.

You could say that I'm possessed by the psychology of how we get our message through to each other, which means I've coached Olympic Head Coaches, Oscar Winners, Prime and Cabinet Ministers in the UK and company directors at GE, NBC, Merck, BBC, and Universal Pictures. Now I work as web editor for FYI Network.

I love to teach and do so for universities and the National Union of Journalists in the UK.

But as a Brit who really doesn't like boasting I'd prefer to talk about you than me.

You'll like my courses, then, if you think that writing is much more important than many people realise, that a successful writer of today needs to have multimedia and marketing skills, and that one of most exciting feelings in the world is to express an idea cogently and have others say 'You truly made me think here'...

It's lovely to meet you, fellow communicator...
