  • Phil,
    It’s great to see and hear you!
    Great four-point talk.
    BTW – I love that cheese joke about your mom. My mother cut the cheese too.
    PS – What is HDI?

  • Thank you Terry – Glad you enjoyed the talk.

    Fun that your mom cut the cheese too. My mom tries to deny it, but I know it’s true :)

    HDI is formerly the Help Desk Institute. for more information.

  • I’ve heard Phil teach and inspire audiences and individuals. I personally own his wonderful book “10 Ways to Make it Great” and have used to help myself and others build a better plan for the future. He has a message that he shares with conviction because it is one he lives with conviction each and every day. His talk is a reflection of his walk…and he is walking to higher ground!

  • Hey, Phil,

    Excellent presentation! The “my mom cuts the cheese for a living.” was great! I’m still laughing. I love the fact that you shared just 4 points – Keeps it simple so people are more likely to use what you teach. :) I also really like the way you point out “Who do you need to meet today?” and “Who needs to meet me?”. Too often people forget that people need to meet them just as badly as they need to meet others.

    Thanks for sharing. Your work is valuable!!! Keep it up :)

  • Phil,

    I really enjoyed your presentation at the HDI Meeting in Denver yesterday. You not only had great content, but you also had a way of motivating and engaging the audience by your enthusiastic presentation style. Thanks for all the wonderful tips you shared. I’m really glad that I brought my staff to this particular meeting with me. Thanks again.

  • Your story is inspiring. I’m glad you didn’t listen to that guidance counselor who told you that you couldn’t but instead persevered and showed him that you could.

What others say about Phil

Dr. Tammy Lenski

“When someone first mentioned Phil to me 3 years ago, she described him this way: “He’s the real deal.” Every time I’ve spoken with or seen Phil interviewing or doing a public speaking gig since, that has proven true. Then, when I felt it was time for me to do some re-branding after over 10 successful years in business, I knew I wanted the benefit of a creative, energetic and smart soul to bounce ideas off of. I knew I wanted someone who grasps branding but works in realms not just narrowly focused on branding alone. Phil came immediately to mind. The results with Phil were exceptional. He pressed my thinking where I’d asked him to (and a few well-selected place I hadn’t!), proved a superb brainstorming and idea-generating partner, and invited me to deepen my thinking about some of the brand ideas I was considering. And he did it all with high energy, a sunny demeanor, and reliable timeliness. Phil Gerbyshak is the real deal indeed.”
