Speaker Bio

David JP Phillips is an international speaker, author, coach and a global authority on public speaking, communication and self-leadership.

David was raised in a small town in Sweden. When he was 14 years old, his mom gave him a book that would change his entire life.

The book was no other than Jean Paul Sartre’s “Existentialism”. Reading the book sparked this 14-year-old boy’s interest for how the brain truly works and why us humans react the way we do.

For instance, why does someone say “maybe” instead of “yes”, “should” instead of “recommend” or “actually” instead of “is”?

The young boy started reading more and more, in hopes of getting a grip of the 1,2kg lump of grey substance located between our ears. Fast forward a few years, David was now turning 17.

To get the full understanding of what this meant, you need to know that due to Swedish tradition, especially in small towns, there are only about three optional paths to take for someone soon-to-be 18.

  • Option 1 is to start saving for your first car. You will also save money so you can customize it with cool stickers and exhausts.
  • Option 2 is to start playing a sport, hoping that you will become a star.
  • Option 3 is to be stuck at the local hamburger joint and never ever leave that small village.

David JP Phillips realized that he did not fit into any of these three options and chose a new path, the path of creating a new way of educating mankind in presentation skills from a biological aspect.

Instead of a car, he started saving for his first EEG (Electroencephalograph) machine.

It took him a while to be able to afford it, but when the day came for the EEG´s arrival he immediately shaved his head and smeared silicone paste all over the scalp.

He then connected 16 electrodes and started to read his own sinus curves on a monitor, curios to see how his brain reacted in different situations.

That planted the first seed in what would become one of Sweden’s biggest companies in Presentation skills and Communication.

Today, we educate people in what many fear the most, even more than death itself. That is, to stand in front of an audience and deliver a presentation.
