About - Phil Drinkwater Coach

Find out how your ADHD executive function challenges impact you

I’m Phil. I'm ADHD and an entrepreneur. I'd like to talk to you about how success has looked for me.

I'm really excited to learn more about you, but I know you'd like to hear more about me too.

Let's get started then!

I've been very successful .. but not how you think.

My non-coaching business has been very financially successful, making $20 Million.

But I don’t see success purely in terms of finances. 

Money gives you options to have the life you truly want, and it’s in designing that which I’ve been most successful.

I’ve crafted a strategy which allowed me to have more and more of my own unique needs in life met.

That’s true happiness. That’s true success.

Freedom & flexibility are two of the most amazing gifts I’ve gained from owning a successful business. Case in point … this is me working from the Spa!

Freedom is so key for entrepreneurs. The ability to have full power over yourself and your choices. No more answering to others and their needs. 

Do I want to work on my website? Or my emails? Or my online marketing?

Maybe you recognise this in you too? 

At heart, I'm an adventurer who loves a challenge

There’s something amazing about conquering something you felt was unachievable. It’s a huge buzz! 

I’ve always had personal and professional goals.

This photo shows me at the top of my first 3000ft climb in Scotland. The views across the Highlands was breathtaking, and it had taken 3 hours for the slow climb.

But I knew I would achieve it, because, no matter how slow, I would carry on.

In business the same is true. You only “fail” if you choose to stop.

My own online business made $20million.

This is a photo of my business taken around 2014.

We created our own niche within the UK online recruitment marketplace and, despite several others aiming to compete with us, we remain the only company in our sector.

This business gains traffic purely from SEO, which allows us to have a lean team, keeping the business profitable even during the tough times.

I'm an eternal problem solver

If there’s one element of my personality that people notice quickly, it’s how much I problem solve.

It’s a hugely ingrained part of my mindset. If I see a problem, I want to find a solution.

Throughout my life, this has helped me to achieve what was important to me.

How I work with coaching customers.

I work exclusively online, since I support business owners and executives all over the world, primarily with ADHD related challenges. 

We sit together and look at the challenges you’re facing, and find a new way off the roundabout that’s causing you to feel stuck.

But while I will be a sounding board and help you understand and hear yourself better, all decisions are yours. I’m not you, and you know you best.

Like all of us, my background made me who I am

I’ve overcome a huge amount in my life, and achieved so much. 

I’ve run my own successful online business, worked in the fast-paced environment of computer games as a programmer and project manager.

I also nearly qualified as a psychotherapist (before deciding it wasn’t for me), became a professional photographer, achieved huge growth as an online marketer … what else? 

Oh yes! I clearly decided to become a business coach too! I realised it fit me better than anything else I’ve ever done. I truly love it, and it was time to focus on what really brought me alive.

I’m now Certified Coach, having qualified with The Coach House in the UK, a highly regarded course accredited by the Association for Coaching.

4 things you should know about me as a person


In one of their songs, British indie band Reef sung “I don’t think kindness is a weakness … I don’t have a problem with compassion”.

I agree.


I started programming when I was only eight, and once broke the maximum cell-limit of a Google Sheet spreadsheet.

I love critical thinking, since it leads to truth.


I don’t believe it’s necessary to be formal. To me, it’s much more important to be the clear and honest.

As such, expect me to be wearing a t-shirt for our coaching sessions.


I’ve been a photographer, games programmer, web designer and I draw at times. I need creativity.

I don’t limit this to art though; I’m an exceptionally creative problem solver.
