As Seen In

What Online Business Coaching isn't...

Business coaching isn't just for large corporations

Online small business coaching

60% of the owners I work with are small businesses that employ a few handfuls of people.

Online entrepreneur coaching

20% of my customers are are startups and entrepreneurs. Having been an entrepreneur myself with a completely new startup, I can put myself in your shoes.

Medium sized and large businesses

Around 20% of my customers are larger businesses with more than 30 staff. I love the challenge of growth in these phases of a business.

Coaching sessions aren't stuffy

This is a real and genuine conversation between two humans - a business coach and a business owner - who have one goal; helping you to succeed. The most effective coaching relationship is built on trust, sincerity and honesty and I bring those into every session.

Online coaching isn't insecure

Some people may be concerned that security is compromised, but private coaching is even easier to achieve since it can be done away from the office.

Business coaching isn't pushy

I won't be angry if you don't complete what you decide to, but I will be interested in "why" since it will lead to profound new knowledge for you.

Does any of this remind you of where you are today?

You had enormous business dreams, but you have started to become unclear of whether you can do this

When you looked at what a business could deliver to your life, you felt excited, but it's proven to be challenging.

You’re becoming frustrated that you aren’t finding your way to success

It's annoying that you see others find success, yet it doesn't seem you can find the right path. Do you lack a successful business model? Or financial model? Maybe you need to find a niche, or improve your marketing plans? Or do you need investment? What is the right path for your business growth?

The paths you follow seem to solve problems, but you end up where you started again

You are working, but the effort doesn't seem to lead you to the dreams that you had, and that is demotivating you.

You’ve a huge task list of “should’s” and “need’tos”, but you aren’t tackling them

You have a never ending list of work that just doesn't feel like it's worth doing.

You’re becoming increasingly critical of yourself

You're pushing yourself to get stuff done in increasingly unkind ways and that's hurting your motivation even more.

You don’t have anyone to talk this through with

You're feeling isolated and like there's no one to help you grow a successful business.

What they say..

“I’m doing really well. Probably the best I’ve been. I have to thank you for the tools you’ve given me to deal with issues.”


Case study: online business

An relatively new startup online advertising agency was struggling with clients

It's very common for newer entrepreneurs to have not found their success yet. Once they do, they can move into a "rinse and repeat" phase, where they build processes to repeat their success time and again.

They seemed to end up with customers who would make them unhappy

These customers were extremely demanding, and the business owner wouldn't build any boundaries to keep themselves safe

As a result, they were anxious and uncertain about their future

They could never be away from their phone in case something went wrong.

We looked at their own marketing materials, which was talking about excellence

The talk of extremely high standards was attracting the kind of customer who expects perfection in every single moment.

Through discussion, I recognised people pleasing tendencies

People pleasers hate conflict, so they were spending all of their time feeling unsafe within their own business.

We rewrote their marketing copy in order to attract customers who had similar personalities

We focused on them providing a friendly and happy service, and defocused the previous core message.

Over the coming months, the right customers started to arrive

The new marketing copy started to change the profile of customer, with more people interested in service than "bleeding edge" results.

Spending less time on dealing with unhappy customers, we were able to tackle other challenges

The additional time and level emotions gave us chance to look at other areas of their business.

As an online business coach, how do I help you?

As a professional business coach, I'm an expert at detecting patterns in your actions and language

You won't be aware of these yet, which is why you keep going down the same unsuccessful paths time and again.

You will eventually learn to recognise your patterns before they occur

Via my coaching skills, you'll discover how you're acting and reacting, as well as what your true challenges are. This will build the awareness that you need to allow you to move forward.

You can then choose to try new paths that may be more successful

This will allow you to prevent yourself from choosing the same unsuccessful paths over and over again, allowing you to experiment with and discover more effective paths.

What they say..

“The difference from my first session to now is life changing for me. The growth is so wonderful”.


Who am I?​

I'm Phil Drinkwater, a leading transformational business and life coach who works exclusively remotely in online coaching sessions

I'm a Certified Coach and I've chosen to work as a online business coach. To attend one of my discovery sessions, all you need is to have a webcam, and a microphone and speaker.

We'll discuss your business and challenges, and examine how you might move forward.

For the past 22 years, I've run a successful online non-coaching business with up to 20 employees

My failures taught me a lot about business, as well as about myself, life, and how I can grow the most. I've a unique coaching program that will assist you in doing the same.

I'm also psychology trained

I'm aware that our needs, thoughts and emotions determine whether we succeed or fail, and how we can change these to produce a more success-oriented mindset.

In our coaching sessions we will...

.. discover what you really want, like growing Marketing Agency Owner Bea ..

..and discover how to get there, like Entrepreneur Sara.

How will we begin online business coaching?

What will happen in our Free Discovery Session?

We'll get to know each other and gain an understanding of what's going on for you so that I can recommend a useful path for us to work together.

If you're nervous, don't be - I'm incredibly kind

If you're nervous, we'll go at your pace. I'm a very understanding person, so you'll feel more confident and comfortable in no time.

All coaching is done online to keep costs accessible to all

I'm an virtual business coach in order to serve as many clients as possible, without spending valuable time traveling. People have become more accustomed to working remotely in various ways since the lockdown. I can coach you virtually as well as I can in person.

What they say..

“Before business coaching, I didn’t believe I could have what I really wanted, and I settled for second, third and fourth best. Now I’m moving forward with what I really want.”


How will we continue business coaching?

Purchase single business coaching sessions, or a discounted package of 6 or 12 sessions

I'm flexible to fit in with your needs. Single sessions are £179. I have an online sales system which tracks your package usage as you book sessions. It's a system designed to be really simple for remote business coaching with customers who value their time too.

We'll talk about challenges, resistance, and how to create an amazing life and business in our online coaching sessions

We can discuss anything that is useful to you, but we'll focus on what is difficult and why you are resistant to certain paths. We'll also figure out what works best for you and how all of this fits into the life you truly desire.

We'll meet every 2 to 3 weeks, usually

I suggest we meet online every few weeks, depending on our schedules. This allows you to take actions in order that we can evaluate the effectiveness for you when we're next together.

How does your future look?

What have you tried so far to overcome your difficulties?

You've probably tried number of things to progress. What are these? How have they fared in solving your business challenges?

Are you determined to improve your situation?

Out of ten, how much do you want success in your business?
Out ten, how certain are that you will achieve success?

What will happen if you keep going as you are?

Will you be able to solve your problems in the next 5 to 10 years? What will you do differently this time to improve your chances?

What would the "writing on the wall" say about your future?

Close your eyes for a moment and let this sink in; what's the "writing on the wall" for you? What is the future of your company and your life?

What they say..

“In just one session, Phil took me from a place of apprehension to one of clarity and confidence. We spent time working out what things I need in order to achieve job satisfaction”.
