Philip Williams has a unique and valuable viewpoint regarding business growth. He has a great deal of experience helping people grow their small businesses and focuses on the people side over the financial aspects. He was hired as a CEO by a company that didn't know how they were going to pay him. He took this failing business and helped grow its revenue by 50% every year WITHOUT even setting goals.
Philip’s business education started at the family dinner table when he was about 8 years old. He was raised by a Barber Shop and Auto Salvage Yard owner then climbed the corporate ladder outside the family business. He’s worked in manufacturing, distribution, engineering consulting, and professional services. He's a 3-time Inc5000 honoree after becoming the CEO who took the helm of a 17 year old cash strapped company and grow it at 50% a year for 5 straight years.
That resulted in two nearly simultaneous acquisition offers from two publicly traded multi-national corporations. He accomplished it all by bootstrapping the business - no outside money. He's bought and sold a couple companies and been through the highs and lows you can only experience through small business ownership. Today, he helps small business owners build profitable and well respected companies through his consulting firm.

On your mark . . . . Get set . . . . WAIT!
I have seen so many marketing campaigns that feel like a pee-wee track meet: they are hastily organized, poorly attended, and all hell breaks loose at the sound of the starting pistol. Too much money, time, and effort are wasted marketing the wrong message to the wrong audience. In fact, you've probably done it yourself.
"That's impossible!" You say. "We hired the best copywriters to create persuasive content! Our design team made stunning visuals! And the videos were so expensive, they had to be good! But we didn't see any return on our investment!"
You are frustrated and exhausted. "This was the absolutely perfect campaign!" You ask, "where did we go wrong?"
Well, I hate to tell you, but at the very beginning, my friend. When you planned that campaign, did you think about your target consumers or clients?
In this episode of The Social Marketing Academy, host Christopher Tompkins gives you the direct truth on how to begin to develop your perfect target audience based on your paying clients and customers, how to create killer buyer profiles and lots more!

Special Guest: Sally Earnshaw, MD Blue Sky, Brightwave & G2G3.
What does a good customer experience look like? The consensus has changed over the decades. What we do know is, in a time-poor, one-click, cross-channel world, ‘polite and professional’ is no longer good enough.
All we hear about today is getting technology to do the work – AI, Big Data, all of those brilliant things that in the future are going to help with channel shift and personalisation. But, we are always going to need people to deliver great customer service. In the new world, every customer touchpoint across whatever channel, is an opportunity to add value.
So, we need to be wary of leaving behind the people element. Best-in-class companies are those who recognise that spending time and effort on customer conversations, combined with the right mindset and skills, drives value.
Join Sally Earnshaw, Blue Sky’s MD in sharing her insight and stories around what drives exceptional customer service, gleaned from years of working with organisations leading the way (and those aspiring to get there).
With a 20 year track record of working in senior positions, Sally has developed and executed sales and service transformation programmes in a wide range of operational environments. This lends a depth of understanding to all sorts of client situations with resultant gravitas to the messages she shares.
She has recently published her first book. Crack the Code: Upgrade your customer experience, one conversation at a time about the human code, called conversation, that’s undergoing a revolution thanks to cutting-edge research in neuroscience. But because it’s a people, rather than a tech, thing it’s being neglected by all but the super-smart few.
