After having heard Phil speak myself, I was so impacted by his message that I invited him to speak to the whole leadership team here at Steel Auto Group. He did not disappoint. His messages and storytelling captivated the team; his points resonating clearly with everyone. We were fortunate enough to have some open discussion afterwards, where Phil shared some more of his lessons and beliefs; all of this led to some very thought provoking and honest reflections that will help us grow as a team and navigate the challenges ahead of us. I would highly recommend Phil as a speaker. He is honest, vulnerable, and ‘real/unique’ – he has lived the leadership experiences and not just read about them!
Empowering Leaders for Lasting Organizational Impact
To create an environment where people feel empowered and believe in themselves, so they can reach their own potential, gaining confidence while recognizing and using their own gifts.
I believe in lifelong learning and have a passion for leadership.
Since a young age I have been in environments that required bringing people together. Inspiring and empowering all around to reach a common goal. For some reason, I always gravitated and found myself in these leadership roles.
Although most of my formal leadership training and experience came through being an officer in the Army, I have learned equally as much through other life experiences such as working on a farm as a 15-year-old and working at a fast-food restaurant as I finished high-school. In fact, being a father and a spouse has taught me so much more about leadership than I could have ever imagined. My two wonderful children teach me something new everyday about how to show up, how to care, and how to lead.

What Audience Members Are Saying
We were delighted to have Phil as a keynote speaker at during inaugural Forestry Innovation Symposium. His storytelling was captivating, drawing out lessons that resonated with the audience. His universal message and principals apply to us all, without needing to be forestry or industry specific.
Phil is an excellent speaker and delivered a very powerful session to the peer group that I lead. His speech is simple yet profound. His messages, shared through storytelling, are packed with golden nuggets that ensured everyone walked away with something tangible that they committed to putting into action. I would highly recommend him as a speaker.
I have been fortunate to hear Phil deliver his keynote speech on two separate occasions; once when I was a leader amongst other leaders, and then subsequently when I invited him to speak to my own team. Both times I left feeling inspired, motivated and engaged to tackle the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Phil is an excellent storyteller, and does a great job at making an emotional connection with his audience. He’s principles and points are highly relevant to any leader and any team, irrelevant of the profession, and there is not doubt that anyone who hears Phil speak will leave inspired and motivated to be the best version of themselves.
We invited Phil to speak to our agents at our two annual business planning sessions totally around 300 people. We wanted to inspire and motivate them; give them the belief that they have what it takes to navigate the challenges ahead. Phil met this objective and more. His powerful storytelling captivated the audience and I have never seen every single person in the room be as silent and engaged as when Phil was speaking. His ability to relate the message to our world and unique challenges was extremely appreciated and impressive, and without a doubt he left us all inspired to face the uncertainties that lie ahead. I would highly recommend Phil as a speaker to your organisation and leadership teams. He has a fresh perspective that we all need to hear.
I heard Phil speak to the peer group I am part of and was so impressed that I invited him to spend the afternoon with my own leadership team. He didn’t disappoint and did a great job at sharing his message in an interactive session that certainly left many wondering how they might adapt and evolve how they show up as a leader. His principles are universally relevant to the newest leader as they are to the most seasoned leader, and he will certainly challenge you to think and see leadership through a different lens. I would highly recommend Phil as an engaging and thought-provoking speaker to help inspire and give your team confidence to face the challenges that lie ahead
We invited Phil to speak at the end of a three-day strategic planning session with our management team, and he did not disappoint! His powerful storytelling captivated the room, but it was his ability to relate his stories and experiences to our world and daily realities that really resonated the most. It was impactful, emotional, and also extremely relevant and applicable to the challenges, issues, and opportunities we face. I would highly recommend Phil as a speaker to your organisation. His fresh perspective really does challenge our way of thinking and leading and left a lasting impact on all of us.
As the featured speaker for one of the CEO Forum groups that I chair, Phil Jewell captivated the group. For me, it’s what the group says after the speaker leaves the room that really highlights the impact they’ve made in their time with the group. After Phil left, here’s a sampling of what I heard—“He’s the best speaker we’ve had.” “His knowledge and experience runs deep.” “He’s so humble and yet so wise.” “We gotta get him back—he’s got a lot more to say.” Phil is very easy to work with and delivers on the expectations he sets. Bottom line, I highly recommend Phil as a speaker for your Peer Forum—you’re group will thank you for it!
The delivery of your message was so captivating there wasn’t a whisper in the entire room of 200 REALTORS. That’s no easy feat. I believe your words had so much of an impact, the participants were speechless to any follow-up questions. It’s been a while since I’ve witnessed a guest speaker capture every mind in the room!
