Who you are?

My parents named me well, Phil is derived from the Greek word for love and that is my reason for being here at this remarkable time in human history.

My current role as CEO of Barrett Values Centre fits perfectly with my personal purpose. Our work supports people to become conscious of what is most important in their lives and in the lives of others and to shift from fear to love, from narrow self-interest to living a life in service to the common good.

I am also a lifelong student. In a ‘Malcolm Gladwell, 10,000 hours’ sort of way, I know I have mastery in this field of work. However, the more I explore and learn, the more I realise that I am just a novice. Like every other human being I have daily struggles with my ego and personal fears. This is a lifelong calling and I am dedicated to the journey.

What inspires you?

I keep coming back to this simple and beautiful quote from Anne Frank.
I am also inspired by the Drum Corps International movement. Young adults (normally between 14 and 21) learn values such as teamwork, cooperation, respect, self-discipline and trust while creating the pinnacle of marching music. Here is are some clips from the 2014 world finals.
