Phil Preston

SPECIALISES IN: CSR Business

Phil worked in the investment industry for 19 years where he oversaw $50 billion of investments before leaving that comfortable life in 2007 to find better ways of tackling social and environmental challenges.

He soon realised that every person and the businesses and organisations they work for have the power to contribute something great to the world, and his role is to help realise that potential.

In 2013, he was invited to join Harvard Business School’s Professor Michael Porter and Mark Kramer in Boston to advance the application of ‘shared value’ principles, where businesses use the profit motive to help address social and environmental challenges.

Phil has since become a leading practitioner in this field, authoring several case studies and the book, Connecting Profit with Purpose.

His clients include small-medium enterprises through to multi-national corporations and everything in between, and has extensive experience working with not-for-profit organisations, peak bodies and governments.

As a speaker and facilitator, he distils years of experience into actionable learning, making use of storytelling, audience interaction and a splash of dry humour.
