Tim Smith - Director Interserve
Phil is a truly exceptional coach and training provider. I have used him to shape and support behavioural change programmes in different sectors and he has always delivered. I am sure that I will use his business again.
Ian Clifford - CEO px Group
I am very pleased to recommend the excellent training & development work that Phil
LaViolette and evalu8d deliver for the px group. As a international management services provider in the
very dynamic and diverse energy sectors, excellence in our people is essential.
Phil has been instrumental in the success of our in-house management development programme, which
he has successfully designed & delivered for us for nearly 10 years. This is a two year, ILM accredited,
managerial knowledge, skills & confidence building programme, that develops employees personally &
professionally through active learning via discussions, group exercises, activities using best practice
strategies & action planning for returning to work.
Delegates from previous programmes have progressed within the business taking up operational,
commercial, managerial and director level roles. The business has also benefitted with increased
employee retention, more robust succession planning; greater consistency of approach from it’s
managers & stronger cross-site and departmental relationships.
Helen Shields - Contact Centre Head
I have worked with many professional coaches and sat through a multitude of professional coaching training sessions throughout my 16 year career within the Contact Centre Industry.
It was over 4 years ago when Phil delivered Evalu8d Behaviour Analysis and Performance Coaching training yet the tools and techniques I learned, I continue to use on a daily basis to drive a high performing and engaged culture.
What they teach works, the programme was simple to follow, easy to put into practice and the benefits could be seen almost immediately.
I found Phil and the Evalu8d team very easy to work with and very passionate about their work which without a doubt raised the quality of coaching and helped improve overall performance throughout the contact centre.
I would be happy to highly recommend
Paul Hill - Team Manager - Vodafone
There is one key attribute that separates Phil and Evalu8d from the rest (and I have seen a good number of companies attempt the same stuff):
What they teach, sticks!
My team have benefited greatly from Phil's innovative and open delivery and deployment of some fantastic tools. They are now in a position to share their learnings in a highly effective way and effect the change I need from them.
Claire Alderson - RSA Group
Phil worked with the leaders at RSA, Halifax. From the moment he walked into the room we were captivated. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Phil and his team again without hesitation
Matthew Kilvington - Team Leader - Vodafone
Phil provides superb coach the coach training. His sessions were extremely enjoyable and provided me with a number of new and very effective coaching skills. Phil was very supportive and I felt empowered and energised after his sessions. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Phil and Evalu8d.
Karl Bramwell - Senior Manager - GDF Suez Teesside
Phil has a passion for his work and appears to be able to pitch his well depending on the audience. He was re-hired a number of times by my then employer due to the high level of improvement seen across the middle management within the organisation.
Alison Davidson - CSM - Vodafone
Phil's approach to coaching and driving improvements in business through the people is world class. This is due to his approach and ability to gain commitment from those he works and his very down to earth consultative manner.
He has a great understanding of operational demands and helped me immensely in being very flexible with his time during the project we worked on. The fact my managers still ask about Phil and talk in their 121's about his approach and how much they learnt, along with skills they have continued to use is a testament to his skill and knowledge, in driving improvements through our people.
I have no hesitation in recommending Phil and his team to any company that has or wants coaching at the heart of what they do.
Joanna Atkinson - Interserve
Working with Phil and his team has been a great asset to myself, my team and the client. Phil has worked with us to develop an exciting behavioural change pilot programme. A key benefit of working with Phil and his team has been the joint determination to ensure that the learning experienced through the pilot programme continues to be reflected in the results achieved to date and those anticipated in the future. I hope to work with Phil and his team again soon

Linda Stokes - Quality Analyst - RSA

The skills I learned and use on a daily basis, from the REACH leaders development programme have been invaluable.

Phil built a strong working partnership with the Management Team which meant that we have worked with him on a number of occasions. He is an expert in his field, able to quickly grasp the business requirement, create and deliver tailored solutions which bring about long term results. He's an inspirational / motivational communicator. I'd highly recommend Phil and Evalu8d.
I've worked with Phil on two training programmes at RSA. I have found that delegates enjoy his style of delivery and he has had fantastic feedback on the content of his courses. It has been a pleasure working with Phil.
Greg Holder - L&D Manager - Vodafone
Phil's interventions have been consistently excellent and have always added great value. There's a reason why my company and several other large blue chips use Evalu8d time and time again and that is Phil's ability to work in partnership, define what you need and then deliver it. Hope to get the opportunity to work with you again.
