“I am working to develop a community of aspiring and inspiring women that act as mentors, role models, collaborators and supporters for all women in business. Our articles, projects and events are intended to empower and support women in growing and developing themselves and their respective work and business ventures This is why the magazine is a co-operative model; we want all members to receive the maximum benefit of our business including a formal share in the business, voting rights and dividends as well as superb networking and contact opportunities. The more the community grows, the more benefits we can offer to all of our members.”
Currently promoting An Introduction to Ethiconomics into the UK business environment, his work has already won some high profile supporters, including the Rt Hon. Lord Ashley of Stoke, a recognised campaigner for the rights of the underprivileged.
Speaking of Phil’s book, Lord Ashley said:
“I think it is a splendid piece of work and deserves high praise not just because of the way it is written, but also because it tackles an old subject in a fresh way. All too often the moral case goes by the board but it may well be that (Birch has) started a new way of approaching the dry subject of economics.”
Phil is currently teaching the principles of Ethiconomics through coaching and training courses and aims to convert all business leaders to this way of thinking.
“I hope, through my work, to inspire business leaders and entrepreneurs to become part of a growing breed of ‘Ethiconomists’, who realise that life is so much more rewarding, emotionally and ultimately financially, when its lived the right way.”
