Andrew Phillips is one of those rare managers you meet who can lead a team because of his enthusiasm and creativity and also because of his experience and strategic skills in his chosen field.

I had the pleasure of working with Andrew in a competitive media environment when he was a content manager for Local Radio in Australia’s Northern Territory, a region about five times the area of the U.K. and with a very diverse audience. My position was Northern Territory Director and leader of a management team which included Andrew. He was always a creative contributor to our overall strategy and was particularly successful in developing ideas to promote our corporate brand to build audience share. (I might also add that Andrew was also conscious of our tight budget restrictions and was able to adjust his ideas and strategies to match!)

I observed Andrew’s performance with his team of broadcasters, producers and technicians and I can say that Andrew had the ability to enthuse his team members, allowing each member to work to their strengths, and yet he also demonstrated that he could manage responsibly and fairly.

Andrew’s success could be measured after about six months in this job. He had developed a tight, resourceful and dedicated team. The radio station programming was interesting and entertaining, creating breaking stories and media buzz. And he was winning audience market share. As a director I could not ask for a stronger result.

On a personal level, Andrew has a lot to offer fellow managers. He has a wealth of experience in music, talent development and strategic management. He is high on emotional intelligence and understands how team work best. He is a great “ideas man” who is always willing to share his experience and thoughts.

Please call me at any time if you require any further insights.
