    I consider myself very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Philly. Both her and I worked together as part of a team that is the backbone back office system in the company, a team with great potential, but fragile motivation levels, a team that had been through a very rough time. Philly has been the catalyst of the teams success; she is very passionate yet humble, a true servant-leader.

    I’ve worked with Philiy over the last couple of years at Bloomberg where she expertly coached and trained a variety of teams through the process of trying to deliver great software to clients. She has the rare gift of knowing when to apply practical solutions and when to share more theoretical knowledge with her teams. Every time I approached her for advice, she quickly knew how to get the heart of my issue and offered several ideas to help me move forward. Philiy is an outstanding trainer and executive coach and any team would be lucky to have her on their side.

    I took two back-to-back Agile training workshops from Philiy over five days, and it was a fantastic experience. Philiy is incredibly gifted at helping her trainees not only understand complex subjects in an approachable and engaging manner but also provides them with the tools needed to apply them to their work through hands-on exercises.
