Phil Toogood, founder of Cranfield Philips, created a unique approach to coaching and self-development due to his own personal philosophy and values, generated from decades spent in various business and sporting arenas.

The core values of Cranfield Philips

“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit” EE Cummings

Many aspects of Phil’s life have led to his creation of this distinct pathway to cultivate change for the better. His commercial leadership and management experience, his coaching and self-improvement ethos, his passion for fitness, competitive sport and martial arts and other life experiences have culminated in a service offering that delivers results.

Phil has worked with the NeuroLeadership Institute, a world-renowned research organisation that has brought together the world’s foremost neuroscientists, leadership researchers and organisation practitioners with the purpose of transforming how we think, develop and perform. This knowledge and refreshing approach to coaching provides a unique model.
