Phil Oldershaw is one of the last greatest showmen. I’ve had the pleasure to know and to have worked with Phil for the past 20 years and his enthusiasm, passion and integrity are, in my opinion, without parallel. His energy is infectious, and he is a real asset to any event that secures his talents.
I have worked closely with Phil on a number of projects overs the years and his friendly, charismatic character and professionalism have been clear throughout. Phil has a unique way of tailoring his presenting style to the target audience and by using his expertise, can create and deliver a truly engaging presentation.
Phil listened to our brief and used his expertise to create and deliver an amazing event on time and on budget.
Phil Oldershaw has been the compere at many Birmingham City Council events including; Artsfest, The Lord Mayors Show, Armed Forces Day, Night Light and the Christmas Lights Switch-on. Phil was professional, reliable, enthusiastic and engaged audiences in excess of 5,000 people.
The Lord Mayor of Birmingham gave Phil an award for ‘Services to the City of Birmingham’ which was well deserved and received.
During my role as UK Brand Manager for Diesel Clothing, a premium denim brand, Phil Oldershaw hosted various internal and external customer events for us.
Before every event he took time to understand the Brands ethos and values to ensure the correct language was being used and tailored to the audience.
We asked Phil to host various events, as I found his presentation style was infectious, positive, energetic and vibrant.
We would highly recommend Phil to host any event.
Phil is a great guy with lovely personality. He is always buzzing with ideas and is a great networker. His energy and enthusiasm is infectious and would make a great choice as an event host.
I have worked with Phil on various projects over the past 10 years and found him to be very professional , articulate and a great communicator.
Phil is an outstanding entrepreneur and leader, particularly of new ventures. He has drive, integrity, flair and the motivation to make a business a success. He is popular with his staff, but demands the highest service standards. Phil also has a warm friendly personality which has created a terrific atmosphere in venues he manages, but also comes across both on stage and in vision on TV.
Phil Oldershaw is our chosen presenter for hosting the Chinese New Year and associated events. He completely understands what we are aiming to achieve and the complexity of the event. He works closely with the Chinese community, guest performers and our corporate partners. We are also able to entrust our senior international dignitaries to be addressed and looked after correctly by Phil. I can say that due to Phil’s professional approach, warmth, fun and enigmatic infectious style, our Chinese New Year events have lifted to another level.
We recently worked with Phil on the free@last annual Charity Ball.
The annual event welcomes around 250 people and I can honestly say that Phil knew how to control the large room, have ‘banter’ with all of the attendees and also knew how to ensure that a room such as that raises as much money as possible for a charity event.
Phil was a pleasure to work with and also adapted the thorough script to make it work for him and his way of presenting.
I won’t hesitate to recommend Phil to other Event Managers, also won’t hesitate to book Phil for other upcoming events.
We had the pleasure of having Phil work with us on our recent fundraising ball, as the main presenter and host. Phil was exceptionally professional throughout the evening and used his skills and experience to create a seamless programme, including a live auction, raffle, heads and tails, electronic quiz, speeches and entertainment. We were exceptionally pleased with Phil’s style, fun and energetic approach and he definitely added great value to the evening. We look forward to working with him again
We have worked with Phil at several capacities from hosting our business awards to smaller intimate panel discussions and round table discussions. Throughout the whole process Phil is always very professional and a pleasure to deal with. He was very timely in coming back to any additional queries or requirements we had in the run up to any event. Phil is always so well received by our guests and always has such a positive and electric energy that we’re sure is contagious!’
It was a real delight to have Phil host our stand at Alexandra Palace. He had endless energy and was a true professional ensuring that all our guests, psychic readers and customers felt incredibly special.
Phil's energy is really extraordinary and he is able to see the needs of others and connect the message required with ease. He interviewed me on a few occasions for our 'Facebook live' and videos and is most enigmatic and fun to work with. He really should be on TV.
