Today the costs of inaction almost always exceed the costs of action.

BOOKS

I have penned ten books including the award-winning The Age of the Platform: How Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google Have Redefined Business and Message Not Received: Why Business Communication Is Broken and How to Fix It. My latest creations are Slack For Dummies and Zoom For Dummies (Wiley). Given what’s going on right now, they’re both pretty timely. Number 11 is called Reimagining Collaboration: Slack, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and the New World of Work and arrives soon. 

No, I don’t sleep much.

All companies are tech companies. Some just haven’t realized it yet.

SPEAKING

speaking clients

Whether in person or virtually, I regularly speak to organizations of all types and sizes on topics such as Big Data, platforms, analytics, communication, collaboration, and technology. Since 1997, I have given more than 350 talks, presentations, and workshops to more than 35,000 people on three continents and in eight countries.

Phil is an engaging speaker with the rare ability to make what may seem dry, complex topics both compelling and entertaining.

—Joris Evers, former Vice President, Netflix

PROFESSOR

Over the years, I have taught thousands of students a wide variety of management, data, and technology courses both in-person and online. These days, I give guest lectures and serve as a professor-for-hire.

SERVICES

For more than two decades, I have worked with individuals and organizations in a wide variety of industries and capacities. At a high level, I do three things today. First, I train employees on how to use collaborative tools, most notably Slack, Zoom, and Microsoft Teams. Second, help organizations with strategy, collaboration, communications, and analytics. Third, I write articles, white papers, and other long-form content for my clients.

THE LONG TERM HAS NEVER BEEN SHORTER.

BLOG

I write about collaborationcommunication,Big Data, platforms, higher education, technology, and other topics. I pepper my posts with humor and pop-culture references. Oh, and I freakin’ despise jargon. Over the last decade, I’ve penned thousands of posts, more than 1,200 of which live on this site.

PODCAST

Conversations About Collaboration is my new, timely, and multi-disciplinary podcast about how we work together. I chat with interesting and smart cookies about collaboration and adjacent topics: remote work, communication, creativity, productivity, technology, workplace culture, and business processes.
