Philip authored the Managing Cashflow Guides (of which there have been over 600,000 downloads) for government, and was the architect of the Prompt Payment Code, which the CICM administered on behalf of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) until its administration was transferred to the Office of the Small Businesss Commissioner in 2020. He has worked closely with successive governments in championing best-practice credit management, eradicating late payment, and supporting small business.

Now semi-retired, he holds several roles through which he maintains his passion for credit and cashflow management, and helping small businesses.
